Social Security Recipients Will Automatically Receive Coronavirus Stimulus Payments

On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that Social Security recipients who are not typically required to file federal income tax returns will not need to file a tax return to receive a coronavirus stimulus payment. Rather, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts.

The IRS will use the information on Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to generate the stimulus payments to Social Security recipients who did not file tax returns in 2018 or 2019, and these recipients will receive the stimulus payments as a direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their Social Security benefits.
