Recipients of Social Security Should Have Received Their Most Recent Stimulus Check

Jun 18, 2021

Tampa, FL (Law Firm Newswire) June 18, 2021 – Recently, the federal government began sending out the third wave of stimulus checks to eligible citizens. These checks, which range in amount up to $1,400, are intended to help those who suffered economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which now has been going on for more than a year.

While the federal government does its best to ensure that all qualifying individuals receive their stimulus checks promptly, mistakes do occur. For example, over 30 million people who receive Social Security benefits and other government benefits had their stimulus checks delayed. The good news for most who receive Social Security benefits is that the government already has all the necessary information on file, and there is generally nothing to do but wait.

According to a recent news report, recipients of Social Security benefits should have received their stimulus checks early to mid-April. Most stimulus checks will be deposited directly into recipients’ bank accounts; however, some will receive a Direct Express card in the mail.

One issue Some Social security recipients face when receiving their stimulus checks is that the government relies on information from 2019 and 2020 tax returns when determining stimulus check eligibility. The government also uses this data to determine where to send the checks. Thus, if someone did not file taxes for 2019 or 2020, the government may not know where to send the check. While this will not change someone’s eligibility, it can lead to further delay. Individuals who believe they were supposed to receive a stimulus check but have not yet seen the funds deposited into their account can check the IRS “Get My Payment” page for assistance.

Florida Social Security attorney, David W. Magann, explains that “Social Security recipients are some of those who need stimulus funds the most. Unfortunately, this time around, they appear to be one of the last groups receiving their checks. Those who continue to run into problems obtaining their stimulus check or are encountering other issues related to Social Security benefits should reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to rectify the situation.”

  • Never Allow A Non-Attorney to Represent You At Your Social Security Hearing!
    You should NOT have a non-attorney clerk at your hearing?  This seems obvious, but several Florida law firms and any company identifying themselves as “Experts”, some who are advertising on TV, are sending non-attorney clerks to Social Security Hearings simply because its cheaper for them to do so rather than have an actual attorney appear.
