Economic Impact Payments: SSA Recipients

Here is important information for public housing residents receiving Social Security benefits. The attachment is a statement from the Social Security Commissioner about how Social Security beneficiaries will receive their economic impact payments. Filing a tax return is not required.


The Social Security Administration announced that Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients will receive automatic Economic Impact Payments directly from the Treasury Department. Treasury anticipates these automatic payments no later than early May.

SSI recipients who have qualifying children under age 17, however, should not wait for their automatic $1,200 individual payment. They should now go to the IRS’s webpage at and visit the Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info section to provide their information.
