Yes, if you don't file a tax return because your income is low and/or your only income is SSI or SSDI, you are still eligible for the COVID-19 stimulus payment. If you receive SSDI, you don't have to do anything; the government will send you your check automatically.

But what about my children? How do I receive stimulus for them as dependants?

If you filed taxes in 2018 or 2019, or you don't file taxes but do get Social Security payments, you don't have to do anything to get a payment.

 

On March 30, the I.R.S. said on its website that it would build a portal where people can update their information “in the coming weeks.”

 

According to the bill, you will get a paper notice in the mail no later than a few weeks after your payment has been disbursed. That notice will contain information about where the payment ended up and in what form it was made. If you couldn’t locate the payment at that point, it would be time to contact the I.R.S. using the information on the notice.
