According to the National Disability Institute, on March 10, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act was passed by Congress and made law by President Biden. According to this Act, a third round of COVID-19 stimulus checks will be provided to the eligible individuals for up to $1,400 or to eligible married couples for $2,800.
Those eligible to receive the third stimulus payment include people with disabilities who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The payments can be credited through direct deposits or by mail. People with disabilities who did not receive a first and second stimulus payment can also request a payment trace.
The third stimulus payment will also be available to people who receive benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Retired railroad workers will also receive stimulus payments of up to $1,400. Contact a social security disability attorney for more information regarding stimulus checks.
COVID-19 has almost disrupted the entire world. Americans are no less affected by this deadly pandemic. Therefore, the government has issued stimulus checks so that Americans can combat the economic crisis caused by COVID-19. Disabled people often require more money to survive under these tough circumstances.
Fortunately, the third stimulus payment will provide economic assistance in the amount of $1,400 to those people, as per the IRS. This payment is meant to help disabled people with medical expenses and other day-to-day expenses. This will also help certain employees who are out of work due to this pandemic.
People who receive SSI and SSDI benefits should know the following information if they haven’t received their third stimulus payments.
Some people have reported getting phone calls and emails from people trying to scam them. The scammers claim to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the Treasury Department. They may even ask you about your financial details for advance fees. You must not respond to these fraud emails. The IRS does not ask for any advance fees or any personal information in order to pay your stimulus for social security disability.
The IRS always mails a letter to an eligible individual 15 days before they will credit any stimulus money to their account. This letter will provide complete information about how the payment will be made. If you misplaced your letter and need to request a replacement from the IRS, you can easily do so.
If you believe you are eligible and have still not received a third stimulus payment, you can consult with an experienced lawyer for a free case evaluation. They can help you if you are facing any long-term side effects related to COVID and are unable to bear the expensive medical costs.
