Can My 66 year old brother has been on SSI since 18. Has never filed taxes, could he file now to receive stimulus?

He only receives $950 monthly, could use stimulus.

If your brother is NOT claimed as someone else's dependent then he should be able to get the stimulus checks.  But if someone claimed him as a dependent, dependents are not eligible for stimulus checks.   Recipients of SSI were supposed to receive the stimulus checks automatically if they were not claimed as dependents.  Did he not receive his E!P payments?

 

The stimulus check is an advance on a credit you can receive on your 2020 tax return.  If something went wrong or you did not get the stimulus check in 2020, you can get it when you file your 2020 return in early 2021

The Recovery Rebate Credit will be found in the FEDERAL REVIEW section. ( you should see "Let's make sure you got the right stimulus amount”)  If you are eligible it will end up on line 30 of your 2020 Form 1040.

 

Make sure that you enter ALL of the stimulus money received for the 1st and 2nd stimulus for yourself, your spouse and your children.

As a Social Security recipient he should have already received the stimulus payment, EIP1 and EIP2.  The third stimulus payment has already been sent to SS recipients.

Given his very low income, it is likely that he qualifies as someone's dependent.  Does he live with you, or anyone else?
