If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you will receive the $1,200 stimulus payment provided for in the CARES Act by early May. The payment is automatic. You don't have to take any action to receive it. The payment will not be counted as “income” for SSI recipients.
If you have a qualifying child under the age on 17, don’t wait to get your payment. Take immediate action by visiting this IRS page and click “Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here” to provide the required information about your child(ren). If you don’t, you’ll have to wait until later to receive the $500 payment for each child.
