Social Security Disability Beneficiaries may get Second Stimulus Check Soon

On Behalf of | Jan 21, 2021 | Stimulus Checks

Social Security disability beneficiaries can look forward to receiving their second stimulus checks soon. On December 27th, the $600 billion relief bill was passed, and it provides for a number of relief measures for Americans suffering financially as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. These measures include a $600 stimulus payment to all eligible Americans.

All eligible adults and children who qualify for the stimulus checks should begin receiving them soon. These include persons who are currently receiving disability benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance program. If you are a disability beneficiary, you are likely to receive a stimulus check soon. If you have received the earlier stimulus check that was mailed out last year, you could continue to be eligible for the second stimulus check, as long as you continue to remain eligible for disability benefits.

The Internal Revenue Service has confirmed that it will be relying on data pertaining to the last checks that were sent out in 2020, while deciding on the new beneficiaries. If you received a check for $1200 in 2020, and continue to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you should be getting your check in the mail soon.

You do not have to take any special action to qualify for the new stimulus checks. As long as you continue to remain eligible for disability benefits, you automatically remain eligible for the same benefits. In fact, you should be receiving your checks much sooner than the last time around. Federal authorities are working hard to ensure that Social Security beneficiaries including disability beneficiaries, receive their stimulus checks quicker than they did last year. If you received your first stimulus check via Direct Express, then you will likely receive the second checks through the same route.
