Second Stimulus Payment for Social Security Recipients: What You Need to Know.Recipients of Social Security Benefits will receive economic stimulus checks automatically. This includes Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability, and Social Security Retirement beneficiaries.

The eligibility requirements are much like the CARES Act that passed in March 2020. If you received a check then, you will most likely receive one automatically this time around.

For those who receive Social Security payments and did not file a federal tax return, the IRS will use the information provided by the SSA.

Eligible individuals will receive a payment of $600.00 (You must earn less than $75,000.00 per year) and $600.00 per child age 16 and younger. Payments will be received however the recipient receives their Social Security payments, either direct deposit or check.

For more information, you can visit the SSA’s website or the IRS’s website here.
