Checks from the government

Please visit Coronavirus stimulus payment scams: What you need to know for the most recent information.

As the Coronavirus takes a growing toll on people’s pocketbooks, there are reports that the government will soon be sending money by check or direct deposit to each of us. The details are still being worked out, but there are a few really important things to know, no matter what this looks like.

1. The government will not ask you to pay anything up front to get this money. No fees. No charges. No nothing.

2. The government will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer.

3. These reports of checks aren’t yet a reality. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.

Look, normally we’d wait to know what the payment plan looks like before we put out a message like this. But these aren’t normal times. And we predict that the scammers are gearing up to take advantage of this.

So, remember: no matter what this payment winds up being, only scammers will ask you to pay to get it. If you spot one of these scams, please tell the Federal Trade Commission: We’re doing our best to stop these scammers in their tracks, and your report will help.

Do people on ssi get a stimulus check

I’m wondering myself too

I only get $783 a month. I'm on SSI and barely making it from month to month. Will I get help with a stimulus check if the bill passes?

I'm also on disability and had to use a credit card to buy supplies before everything was gone. As for the answer is obvious, there is no answer yet. After those in charge check the outcomes, we will know; who if any, where or when. Until then, pray that we do but also pray that Trump won't somehow make up pay for it, on way or another.

I was shocked when I heard

I'm pretty sure people on SSI wont get anything. I believe because it's only for those losing income/work. Those on SSI are on fixed income,so you arent losing any income,so you stay the same. It's not for people on assistance to benefit if theres no loss. Vote JUST passed, so I dont know for sure
