Most Social Security and Railroad Retirement recipients do not need to file a return or provide information to get an Economic Impact Payment
Many people are receiving Economic Impacts Payments to help with the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Among those are who receive Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI), or survivor benefits and Railroad Retirement benefits. This includes those who don’t normally file a tax return and not claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.
Here are some things for these folks to know about the payment:
- Eligible Social Security, SSDI and Railroad Retirement beneficiaries do not need to file a tax return or provide information. Payments will be sent automatically the same way you are receiving your benefits.
- However, if you have qualifying children under the age 17 you must provide information through the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info tool to claim the $500 payment per child.
