Economic Impact Payments (Stimulus Checks) for Non-Tax Filers

If someone drew Social Security (SSDI, retirement, Widow's, SSI) in 2018 or 2019 but did not file taxes due to income being below tax filing thresholds, they will still automatically receive the Economic Impact Payments without having to do anything and the payment will be deposited to the account in which they receive their Social Security checks.

However, if they have qualifying children under 17, it is recommended that they go to the IRS’ new webtool for Non-Filers to enter their information so they can also claim/receive the dependent child payments.

Also, if someone did not file taxes in 2018 or 2019 and did not start drawing Social Security benefits until 2020, they will need to go to the IRS’s Non-Filers website to enter their information to receive a payment.

Please see the below link from Social Security for further information about these updates. As a reminder, Social Security and the IRS are not going to call individuals regarding their Economic Impact Payments such calls are scams! The only official place to get information/file for payment for non-filers is the IRS website: This is also the place for people to go to see if they are eligible for a payment, and soon to check the status of your Economic Impact Payment.
