According to information on the IRS website regarding the stimulus payments, Social Security recipients will receive their stimulus payment in the same manner as they would normally receive their benefits.  You do not need to file a tax return in order to receive the stimulus payment.  If your Social Security benefits are being direct deposited, then your stimulus payment will go to the same account.

 

IRS - Economic Impact Payment

 

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients will need to register to receive the stimulus payment if you are not otherwise required to file a tax return.  You can use the TurboTax Stimulus Registration to provide your information to the IRS, including your direct deposit information.

 

Use the following link to get started.  Go to the orange Register Now button that you see as you scroll down the page.
