GREENSBORO, N.C. — The details are still being figured out, but it appears recipients of social security, disability and SSI will get stimulus checks.
As of right now, social security benefit recipients and social security disability, as well as supplemental social security recipients, are entitled to the stimulus payment,” financial expert Scott Braddock said.
Most adults will get about $1,200. There’s an additional $500 for each child younger than 16.
You could get less if you make more than $75,000 as a single person and $150,000 as a married couple. The government knows how much you make, based on your 2018 or 2019 tax returns.

Cheryl wrote in to ask, “I'm a 70-year-old and the last three years we did not have to file taxes. When the stimulus check goes out, do me and my husband get one?”
The short answer at this time is, YES! (Updated information since this article was published) At one point, it looked like you would have to find a way to file your 2019 taxes to get the check, but as of now, the government will automatically send you a check using information tied to your SS statement and you WILL NOT have to file taxes.
