From WIBOSCOC Resources Page:
April 10th, 2020, the IRS unveiled a new link on the IRS.gov website for people who do not normally file tax returns. They can enter bank account information in order to receive the economic stimulus payment. There is a big blue button on the IRS.gov website called “Non Filers: Enter Payment Info Here.”
To visit the website: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
To access the information for non-filers: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here
Non-filers may include:
- SSI (Supplemental Security Income) Recipients – they are also eligible to receive the economic impact payment. The payment is not considered income and will be excluded from resources for 12 months for SSI recipients.
- This also includes those that receive veterans disability compensation, a pension, or survivor benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs or those whose income level does not require filing a tax return.
Those that should NOT complete the non-filers information:
According to the IRS, those that receive Social Security retirement, disability, and survivors beneficiaries will not need to file an abbreviated tax return. The IRS will use SSA-1099 information they already have to automatically generate the payments. Beneficiaries will receive these payments by direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their Social Security benefits.
