The Social Security Administration released important information regarding COVID-19 Economic Impact Payments for Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries. If you are a beneficiary and have your payments managed by a representative payee, you will begin to receive your Economic Impact Payment from the Internal Revenue Service in late May.
Social Security Administration Commissioner, Andrew Saul, said the following in a press release, “The Social Security Administration has been working with the IRS to provide the necessary information about Social Security and SSI beneficiaries in order to automate and expedite their Economic Impact Payments. While millions of our beneficiaries have already received their EIPs from the IRS, we continue to work hard for those beneficiaries who are awaiting their payment from the IRS.”
