Do not claim your 25 year old son as a dependent for purposes of the stimulus check. if you do, HE will not receive a check. He should receive one based on being the recipient of Social Security--this should be automatic. You should receive a check for yourself and your younger child who you say is under 16.
So even though his checks are both related to disability and not just regular SS (for the elderly) he should get his check automatically? I read that for those on SS they amended it so they didn't have to file taxes, because at first they did, but I thought I saw where it said that that didn't apply to SS disability and they still have to file even though some were lobbying to get that changed too.
And I just file taxes for myself and my daughter with no income claimed for us then to get the $1700 or do I just need to give my info on the link you shared first for that?
Thank you for your help!!
Social Security and Stimulus Payments
Thanks. It said social security but didn't specifically say that included those who receive disability. SS, SSD, and SSI are all different which is why I'm still not sure.
If your son receives a SSA1099 he is getting Social Security.
I don't think he does receive one, but I'll check the records. Also found this regarding the difference between SSI and SSDI. SSI only recipients still have to file according to this. https://www.disabilitysecrets.com/resources/will-i-get-a-coronavirus-stimulus-check-if-im-collecting...
What exactly he is on has always been confusing. He got a check from his dad's disability when my son was a minor. Then when he got his own disability approved he got a check for his own disability for about a month, and then they said now that he qualified for his own he would go back to getting one from his dad's disability plus the SSI of his own. Made no sense to me.
