Hi KimM696183,
I did enter my information in the IRS Non-Filers tool but only after trying to enter it in the Get My Payment tool first which did not work for me.

Hi all,

 

I would like to take a moment to share a theory that I have about being proactive while awaiting your stimulus payment. As previously mentioned, I recently discovered that I would be getting my payment direct deposited on 6/3/20 as noted on the IRS Get My Payment tool. However, to my surprise, my bank cleared the deposit today as the funds were made available to me on 6/1/20. But let me backtrack to the weeks of very frustrating experiences when I couldn't even obtain the necessary information on the Get My Payment tool. I often checked this forum to read the posts that many of you shared. I got lots of ideas on what I could possibly do next to expedite the already delayed stimulus payment.  

 

One of the suggestions I tried was to click on the IRS Non-Filers tool even though the IRS advised against it since I receive SSDI and am not required to file my taxes due to my current income status. I tried unsuccessfully to enter my banking information via the Get My Payment tool but the information would not get processed. Instead, I received an error message saying that the information that I entered did not match their records. So as a last resort, I clicked on the Non-Filers tool and was able to enter my banking information there. My main concern doing it this way was that I might complicate things for the IRS since they advised against this method for my filing status category. Needless, to say, the IRS accepted my information using this method and I received a confirmation that it was being treated as a Non-Filers refund request. I figured at least this way if they had problems accessing my information from SSA, now I had provided them with the information that they needed to direct deposit my stimulus payment. But here's the kicker. Coincidentally, I received my payment exactly 14 days after I submitted my banking information using the Non-Filers tool. However, it might have been a coincidence that the IRS just received my information from SSA to generate an "automatic" payment regardless if I used the Non-Filers tool or not. The point is that I was proactive and used whatever resources that were available to me to obtain the results I needed.

 

Going forward, my advice to those who are still waiting to receive their payments is to consider using the Non-Filers tool if you are unsuccessful in using the Get My Payment tool to provide your banking information or get your direct deposit date. In conclusion, one thing that seems quite plausible is that the Get My Payment tool is updated only when they have processed your payment. It is practically useless if they haven't reached you yet. I truly hope that this may be an option for those still awaiting their payments. I also hope that the next stimulus package is processed a whole lot smoother as it was in the past. Best wishes!

Well I'm glad I'm getting it on Wednesday which is regular payday for ssdi. I will have double the amount. Yes it took me long for them to issue it. I finally did the non filler form because I was getting worried about it. I was supposed to do nothing but did as a back up. Yes it is hard to be in my car. I can't wait to check in and clean up and do laundry. The church that let's us show is closed do to the pandemic. I do hope everyone gets the economic impact payment  ASP.

It gets me so angry that anyone in one of the wealthiest countries in the world is forced to live in their car. Especially someone drawing SSDI. I know this isn't the correct forum for it, but my blood is boiling!

 

My wife is still waiting for her stimulus check. She receives SSDI DD. It's not just you, so please stay encouraged. This was too big a venture for it to work to the advantage of the American people. It should have been a multi agency affair, with SS responsible for paying SS recipients. If there is another stimulus package in the future, it should be a lot smoother process. We hope!

I am on ssdi. I hot a call from senator Mark Warners secretary and she said that my economic impact payment is going to be direct deposited on Wednesday June 3 which is payday for ssdi. I will have double. I called the senators office and asked them to look in to this because I was getting worried. It shows it on the get my payment tool. I also filled out the non filler form and used that as a back up. Even though I was not suppose to do anything. I do hope it comes soon.  Also a tax person who helps with low income recipients called the irs special number. That is when we did the non filler form. So do that non filler form as a back up. I've been homeless since September and when I get paid every month I stay in a hotel room. When I can't I stay in my car. I am glad Wednesday is a big day. I've been in my car for a week.

I checked mine again today, and as always, payment status unavailable.  It never changes.  I am beginning to just give up hope.  Why?  Other people in  my state on the same benefits I am have theirs.  Also, I would like to know, those of you who received paper checks, what did they look like?  I get a lot of mail from President Trump's administration regarding the election, and while I am a supporter, I don't always open them.  If I threw out a check, I would just not be able to handle that.  This whole thing is just too all over the place.  All I know is, I have an almost $1,000.00 bill that needs paid.  I need that money.

I'm still praying for everyone who has not received their stimulus yet. I know it's easy for me to say this because I received mine about 3 days ago and I thank God. But I don't want to give up or abandon the cause in what they said we all are supposed to receive. We know there are glitches in the system. So keep your head up as best you can everyone and take care.

I am not on MyEx-Husbands bank  account,however, I am collecting S/S under his S/S number.  My S/S check goes into my bank not his bank.  I guess the IRS issued the Stimulus Checks based on S/S number from which the S/S benefits are being paid not the recipient’s banking information.  That is the issue.  


I think what you are trying to say is that you get (Divorced) Spousal Benefits. Is that right?

 

Even though you get this benefit based on his work record, your (Divorced) Spousal Benefits are in your name and your Social Security number..

 

You should get a SSA-1099 at the end of each year in your name for your tax records showing the amount of this benefit which was paid to you for tax purposes, if you need to file a return.

It should show your own Social Security number.

 

In box 1, you'll find the name of the person for whom the Social Security benefits were paid - YOU.

 

For tax purposes, benefits are included in the taxable income of the person who has the legal right to receive the benefits. In this case - YOU.  

 

In box 2, you'll find the Social Security number person of the person named in box 1.- YOU

 

Screenshot_2020-05-31 Understanding Your Tax Forms 2016 SSA-1099, Social Security Benefits(1).png

 

You should get an Economic Impact Payment by Direct Deposit as long as the 2019 SSA-1099 is shown correctly. 

 

Try filling out the IRS.gov -GET MY PAYMENT  form with the necessary identifying info and see what it says - Data is updated once per day overnight, so there's no need to check back more than once per day.

 

WHEN your payment is scheduled, it will give you the amount, how it is being sent and when it will be sent.  If it says, "Payment Status Is Not Available", then you just wait until your number comes up but it should be soon - .

 

Now if you have other types of stuff going on  - like:

  • you are claimed on somebody elses' tax return as a dependent and you are older than 17
  • you are a not a citizen or a resident alien and have no working SS#
  • you might have needed to file a tax return in 2018 / 2019 because of reported taxable income over the filing limit and the IRS is waiting - (see the back of the SSA-1099 for limits)

????????   need details
