Here’s a new bit of information concerning the economic stimulus payment from the federal government. Almost everyone who gets social security or filed taxes in either of the last two years need to do absolutely nothing to receive their payment. It’s important to know this to prevent being duped by a scammer trying to steal personal information. However, there is an exception… people who:
–Receive Social Security benefits
–Did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019
–Have qualifying children under age 17…
Should go to the IRS website to enter their information, in order to ensure that they’ll get the $500 per dependent payment right away in addition to the $1200 individual payment.
