Social Security Recipients Will Automatically Receive Economic Impact Statements

Updated: Apr 3, 2020

The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announced yesterday that Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file an abbreviated tax return to receive an Economic Impact Statement. Instead, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts.

The IRS will use the information on Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to generate $1,200 Economic Impact Statements to Social Security recipients who did not file tax returns in 2018 or 2019. Recipients will receive these payments as a direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their benefits.
