  • Hi Anrin Herbert

    Hopefully this will help. It's direct from the IRS. https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment-frequently-asked-questions#elig

    U.S. citizens and U.S. resident aliens will receive the Economic Impact Payment of $1,200 for individual or head of household filers, and $2,400 for married filing jointly if they are not a dependent of another taxpayer and have a work eligible Social Security number with adjusted gross income up to:

    • $75,000 for individuals if their filing status was single or married filing separately
    • $112,500 for head of household filers and
    • $150,000 for married couples filing joint returns

    Taxpayers will receive a reduced payment if their AGI is between:

    • $75,000 and $99,000 if their filing status was single or married filing separately
    • 112,500 and $136,500 for head of household
    • $150,000 and $198,000 if their filing status was married filing jointly

    The amount of the reduced payment will be based upon the taxpayers specific adjusted gross income.

    Eligible retirees and recipients of Social Security retirement, survivor, or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and VA Compensation and Pension (C&P) will receive a payment.

    For eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for 2019 or 2018, they receive the payments automatically.

    Those who don’t usually file a tax return and receive Social Security retirement, survivor, or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and VA Compensation and Pension (C&P) also receive automatic payments of $1,200. While some of these groups receive Forms 1099, many in this group don't typically file tax returns. Many people in these groups are expected to see the automatic $1,200 payments later this month, with SSI and VA payments expected to start in May.

    For people who have little or no income and didn’t file a tax return or don’t receive any of the federal benefits listed above, they are also eligible for an Economic Impact Payment. They need to register with the Non-Filer tool on IRS.gov as soon as possible so they can receive a payment.
