Well that is a shocker! I thought there would be NO stimulus checks but there are. Any one else get a notice in the mail?

I thought this year there would be NO stimulus checks but today in the mail I got a note from Socail securty. It stated that in late May but before June 4th I would get $250 due to the stimulus bill passed in Feb. My kids and I get Social security from where their father died. Catch is only the adults qualify so the kids don't get one I just get the $250. Letter also said people on SSI, SSD, Rail road benifits and VA benifits also qualify. A friend of mine who is on SSI kept talking about this months ago and I kept saying there are no stimulus checks your wrong, guess I got to say sorry now!

  • Kids that are on SSI. Suplemental Security Income do get a check. Like if they get SSDI because they are disabeld but because they are kids they never worked so they get suplemental security Income. Just not ones that get SS.

  • They are part of the group who make money but don't pay taxes. SSI is considered income. Remember, even those who don' pay taxes (or get them all back after paying) are getting a check. Everyone else gets a few bucks a week.

  • You need to realize with that stimulus check, you will NOT be receiving any increases in your disability payments or death benefit payments either for more than the next four years.
    Your great stimulus payment from Zero amounts to $5.20 over the next four years a month in an increase.
    Had you received maybe $500 a month in benefits, and the increase would have been 3% to offset the cost of living the government used to give every year your LOSS is now
    The first year $180
    The second year $365.40
    The third year $556.36
    The fourth year $752.88

  • Only people on SSI , etc are getting a check. I'm sorry people on here are so rude! Not to stick up for them, but they probably thought you meant everyone was getting a check again.....
