Good News for Social Security Recipients Who Have Not Filed Tax Returns for 2018 or 2019
The IRS has announced that individuals who receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits who have not been required to file tax returns do not need to do anything to receive the $1,200 Economic Impact Payment. The IRS will use direct deposit information available from Social Security to deposit the payments. If no direct deposit information is available, the payment will be mailed. The payments are expected to begin in the next three weeks. Additional information regarding the Economic Impact Payments is available at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment .
