It seems like the payment method for those receiving government benefits is pretty straightforward, and I hope it is easier for them than it has been for others lately.
“Recipients will generally receive the automatic payments by direct deposit, Direct Express debit card, or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their SSI benefits,” the IRS says. If you use a Direct Express debit card and are claiming the extra $500 per qualifying child, the IRS said “additional information will be available soon” explaining how to claim those children via the IRS’s online portal. (The IRS did not immediately respond to TIME’s question about when that information will be made available.)
It makes me wonder when they'll make that info available as well.

My mom and dad who are both on SS got their deposit this morning. It went to their regular bank account they get benefits on.
