From Congresswoman Luria, "Most VA and SSI beneficiaries who did not file taxes in 2018 or 2019 are eligible for an automatic $1,200 payment for themselves. If VA or SSI beneficiaries have a qualifying dependent, they are eligible for an additional $500 per eligible dependent, but you may need to take further action. To have this money added to your $1,200 payment, you should visit the IRS’ non-filers tool [link below] and provide information about your dependents by May 5. If a VA or SSI beneficiary misses this deadline, they will receive their $1,200 payment, and, by law, the additional $500 per eligible child amount would be paid in association with a return filing for tax year 2020."
