Treasury Department Announces Automatic Stimulus Payments for SSI Recipients

On April 15, the Treasury Department announced that people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) will automatically receive stimulus payments authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Treasury Department’s initial plan was to require individuals receiving SSI to file or have filed tax returns for 2018 or 2019. Payments will be made via the same method by which an individual receives SSI. Read The Arc’s statement and see the updated fact sheet.
