If I'm on Social Security SSI can I get a government check mailed out to me

If you receive only SSI and you didn't file a tax return for 2018 income or 2019 income, you'll have to take steps to ensure the government can find you and pay you.

 

Those who don't normally file tax returns will have to file a tax return at some point to get the stimulus money (except for Social Security disability recipients). This includes veterans who receive disability compensation or pension and SSI recipients who don't receive any SSDI.

 

The IRS is expected to release more information soon for veterans and SSI recipients about how to file a simplified tax return for the purpose of getting the stimulus rebate. In the meantime, TurboTax has partnered with the IRS to help individuals like SSI recipients and veterans register for the stimulus payment. You'll need to create an account with TurboTax at its stimulus registration page, but it's free. Once you're logged in, you'll answer a few questions so that TurboTax can determine your filing status, your mailing address, and your direct deposit banking information, if applicable.
