Stimulus Check when you have Social Security Deposit every month
I did not get my stimulus check deposited in my accout as stated it would be. I went on the IRS site and the response was they had no information for direct deposit! Well you have been depositing my SS check every month in my checking account, did you check there??? I filed a federal return and owed some money, but have not paid yet because of the extension. I filled out the form on the website for the stimlus check along with the bank info they asked for, so that was yesterday, we will see, but not all of us on SS are not automatically receving the check in our account as stated. You would think we would get ours first!
some people got the may 28th date for payment . I still have not gotten any response but no info from the port hole where my payment thing. even though they said not to fill out the non flier form i'm getting ready to fill it out cause this is b.s. waiting &waiting &waiting when all the other people get theres. they don't even give you a date.and calling is a total joke you still get automated crap NEVER A PERSON..I LOST MY PAITENCE 3 WEEKS AGO...No ONE can claim me I have dd same account for 15yrs. what is the problem here..... if i dont get it by fri or any info by fri im gonna go ahead and fill out the non fliers crap see if that does any good... the is rediclious............
Hello everyone, we understand the interest in stimulus payments in the current circumstances.
Please remember to keep this thread on topic for the purpose, there are political threads to discuss subjects if you desire: https://community.aarp.org/t5/Politics-Society/ct-p/CurrentEvents
Stay safe and healthy, and remember to post according to the guidelines.
Just wanted to give everybody an update. I am SSDI DD and like you all have not received my stimulus payment. Been checking GMP site every morning, including this morning and got the message payment status not available. I just checked the GMP site again, and a miracle has taken place. Sometime this afternoon GMP updated and mine now says my payment has been scheduled for direct deposit on May 28, 2020 and my account number is listed, (last 4 digits). If you have not checked GMP site lately, you might want to check, as there has been updated data added.
The shame is that my country values the wealthy, and not the common citizen. The wealthy are making out like bandits during the shutdown, even taking money meant for small business owners (my family). That's my concern. The illegals are the easier target, as always.
You are showing your ignorance. Maybe you should read up before you post something like that. Illegal residents are NOT getting the stimulus money bc they have no social security number There are other people that are legal aliens who although not a US citizen, has LEGALLY permitted to work and live in the United States. They are not US citizens but they do pay taxes here and they ARE PERMITTED to get the stimulus check since they pay taxes.
Stop blaming illegal immigrants for all your problems and know the difference between the two when you post. The legal aliens are probably paying more in US taxes than you are.
Illegals have nothing to do with this! This was such a large undertaking, and in my opinion it was handled the wrong way. Social Security should have been in charge of depositing recipients money into their bank accounts. They do it so well every month. If anyone had dependents, they should have submitted info separately to the IRS for payment. That's how I feel about it. To bring up "illegals" is ridiculous and petty!
I couldn't agree with you more Billy. Pinning the problem on illegals is a very dumb move. Just as bad as blaming them for fraudulent voting. The last thing a person who is illegal wants to do is draw attention to themselves by trying to get a stimulus payment or voting. I doubt that most even have SS numbers. The root of this problem is just poor organisation and taking on such a huge task without giving it some proper thought. Given how the timelines have worked out, I would have been happier if they had taken the time to figure it out first and then started handing out the money. Now that they're talking about another payment, I hope that they've learned from their mistakes. But sadly, most governments never seem to learn.
The second bill has already been killed so do not expect a second stimulus check. The IRS is doing the best they can DURING A PANDEMIC (which most seem to forget) and had to pay out over 100 million people and without much notice. There were many people (the ones who were working) that needed that money desperately. Those of us on benefits should have been the last bc we are still getting our monthly benefits.
You are not understanding the difference between an illegal citizen and a resident alien. A resident alien was not born in the US and is not a citizen, but has permission to work in the United States and they also pay US taxes so they are entitled to the stimulus money because they are paying TAXES.
The second bill about a second stimulus was already killed and is moot as was expected.
Illegal residents are NOT getting the check because although they work they do not have a social security number. So before you get all upset and start blaming others and stating THEY cannot understand, you really need to read and know the difference because it is YOU that does not understand. And the resident aliens are probably paying more in taxes than you.
Illegal residents are eligible to receive a stimulus if they are paying into Social Security and obviously have an account.
IIlegal is a term used by some politicians to keep stoking fear and bigotry.
They may be waiting for naturalization or citizenship status but are not yet registered as citizens.
They are working and paying taxes.
If you are upset about our immigration laws- stop being dumbdowned and get more information
Do fact checking instead of watching right wing media
This country was founded based on immigration.
We all owe our status due to our forebarers being immigrants.
- stimulus checks
I was so happy to read your post this morning. Your words very much sum up my feelings. Its been saddening for me these past weeks to read posts on this AARP site that are becoming more and more political and discriminatory. Again, I appreciate your words and thoughts.
I agree with much of what you have said - yes, many people do not understand our "legal" immigration system and who is who and what category are they within. You are right that people need to learn about it and the difficult steps that many of them have to take to come here, legally.
US Resident Aliens are people that have done all the steps and are now just waiting for the allotted time and processes to pass - A resident alien is a foreign-born United States resident who is not a U.S. citizen. A resident alien is also known as a permanent resident or a lawful permanent resident, which means they are considered an immigrant who has been legally and lawfully recorded as a resident of the country.
They have been LEGALLY issued a Social Security number and working papers. They work and pay all kinds of taxes, just like the rest of us and earn any benefits based on the same criteria.
I have nothing against humanity, BUT, I worked 38 years of my life, and due to circumstances I had no control over, I can no longer work. I had to take my retirement pension early, and have been on SSI for the last few years waiting on that. If you have a green card, are here working legally, waiting on citizenship, good for you, but do not tell me there aren't a whole lot of others that have no such thing, and they are getting more than ME.
I was under the impression that those who collect SSI have not worked enough long enough or do not have enough recent working credits to get SSDI.
But if you were in a low paying job and did not work long enough and they instead give you SSI (which I know is not much income) you also usually qualify for food stamps and medicaid in which you would not have to pay anything towards your medical.
Those that are here legally working and paying taxes would receive more because they are earning more and paying taxes.
SSI is usually given to those who did not earn enough to qualify for SSDI benefits. But hopefully, you are also getting (which most SSI people get) food stamps and free medical.
I merely said it is wrong that an illegal gets stimulus money and me, a US citizen does not.
How would you know they are "illegal" ????
The CARES ACT prevents anybody without a "working" SS # to get a Economic Impact Payment.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE: 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 within the adjusted gross income limits.
WHO IS NOT ELIGIBLE:
- those who are outside of the stated eligibility income limits -
- If you are or can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.
- You do not have a valid Social Security number.
- You are a NONresident alien.
- You filed Form 1040-NR or Form 1040NR-EZ, Form 1040-PR or Form 1040-SS for 2019.
