The stimulus will be paid to you the way your SSI is paid to you. You have to do nothing to get the stimulus.

According to the IRS:

"You receive Social Security, Railroad Retirement, or SSDI benefits. The IRS will automatically send you an Economic Impact Payment."

If you receive SSI---and do not get a SSA1099---you can use this portal on the IRS site:

 

IRS PORTAL FOR NON-FILERS

https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here

 

Confusion results when people refer to Social Security benefits as "SSI"  because they are not the same thing and are not paid in the same way--especially for the stimulus money.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS AND SSI?
