The Social Security Administration has announced emergency funding is available through Economic Impact Payments for Social Security and SSI Recipients. The deadline to claim additional benefits and schedule payments is May 5, 2020. These payments are for those recipients who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. To find out if you're eligible for these payments, the administration has provided a guide listing the requirements.

This guide will help beneficiaries easily and quickly find out whether or not they’re eligible to receive economic impact payments. Those collecting Social Security benefits including retirees, the disabled, qualifying children, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients are strongly encouraged to review the resource guide.
