My husband is disabled & I don't have income. I know he gets a COVID-19 stimulus check but do I need to file a tax return to get mine or will it come with his?

If you filed a joint tax return, the two of you will receive a combined payment the the two of you.  If your husband's filing status was Married Filing Separate, then you will have to file as well in order to receive a stimulus payment.

He doesn't file taxes...neither of us do. I need to know if they will put my money on his benifit card as well as his or do I need to file a tax return to get my check.

Since you have not filed a return for the past two years and do not receive Social Security, you will need to use this link to register for your Stimulus Payment:  Stimulus Registration.    Select If you don't need to file your tax returns this year to get started.

Ok thats what I thought I would have to do. The only other thing I need to know is do I file seperate since he'll get his money on his benefit card or do I still file married?

If I do married will it mess up him getting his money on his card? He should get his soon and I dont want to screw it up and it come with mine in the mail instead.

The stimulus payment has no affect on any other program.

Oh I know that. Thats not what I mean. His stimulus payment will come on his benefit card hopefully soon but I dont want them to send his stimulus payment with mine instead.

Since you know he will get a stimulus check, use Single when you complete the TurboTax Stimulus form shown in the answer above.

Thank you so much. That is what i thought I'd have to do but wanted to be sure. Also, i dont know if u know the answer to this but can i use a prepaid visa card to have my money put on it or does it have to be an actual bank?

I have another problem and I can't remember where I have to go to get help with it so i was wondering if I can still ask you.
