    My husband is on ssi because of a stroke he had 10 years ago. At that time I had to quit my job to stay home and take care of him. I understand he will get his stimulus on his direct express card. However I wasnt sure what to do to ensure I get mine. We have no bank account. I went to non-filers tool and input my address so they can send me a paper check. My income is zero so I expected to receive my check because everyone I know in similiar situation got theirs. I am guessing that maybe I didnt file soon enough. Would my check be coming with the next batch or will I be one of the last ones to get mailed out.

    As long as you successfully used the non-filers IRS portal, which it sounds like you did, then they will send you a paper check. And they are sending them out based on income levels, lowest to highest. So you should get yours soon. But it does take a week or so for the IRS to update their system with your info once you use the portal.

    Can't say the exact date you will get the check in the mail, but would estimate it should only take 2-3 weeks max from the date you used the portal.
