Was maybe one of your kids 17 or older in 2019? You only get the $500 if your child was 16 or younger at the end of 2019.

Do you always claim both children each tax year? Were they both under 17 in 2019?

There have been a number of people who have not gotten the extra portion for dependents. The IRS has not issued any information on this. They may be verifying dependents.
