Economic Income Payments for Social Security Recipients: Rep Payee and People Living in U.S. Territories.
Recipients of Social Security Benefits have already begun to receive economic stimulus checks automatically; however, if you have a rep payee or live in a U.S. territory your checks may be coming later.
According to the Social Security Administration, Social Security beneficiaries who have their regular monthly payments managed for them by another person, called a representative payee, will begin receiving their Economic Impact Payments from the IRS in late May.
For those who receive Social Security payments and live in a U.S. territory, the SSA anticipates those recipients to receive their economic impact payments in early June. This includes those living in the U.S. territories: American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Island. The taxing authorities in each of those territories are expected to pay the eligible recipient, not the IRS.
According to the SSA’s website, they are working closely with the IRS to provide all necessary information to help individuals receive their stimulus checks quickly.
For more information, you can visit the SSA’s Economic Impact Payment section here. Those who live in a U.S. territory should contact their local taxing authority with questions about these payments
