    You are eligible for the stimulus as long as no one claims you as a dependent. The IRS is scheduled to make stimulus check deposits for Social Security recipients by the end of April. Many are thinking SSA recipients will get their deposits on the 29th, which is today. If not today then by the end of the week, or next week at the very latest.

    We have a thread on the IRS schedule for sending out and depositing stimulus checks as well here -- Stimulus Checks Are On The Way -- Here's The Timetable

    This exert might help too, and give some info for anyone in a similar situation with similar questions:

    Even with the updates, you may still get a notification that says "Payment Status Not Available."

    If you're still waiting on your stimulus money, here is an estimate of when more payments will be delivered.

    - Social Security, survivor and disability non-filers will see economic impact payments in their bank accounts by April 29, according to a Treasury spokeswoman.

    - SSI non-filers should begin seeing payments in early May.

    - Veterans benefit recipients should also begin receiving their stimulus payments by early May, a Treasury spokeswoman said.

    - In an update posted Sunday, the IRS said that if you have successfully entered your bank information "any day until noon on Tuesday, your payment date will be available beginning the following Saturday." If you miss the Tuesday deadline, you have to wait another week to get a payment date. Or, if your payment has already been processed, you'll get a check that could take up to 14 days to receive.

    - If you receive SSI or Veterans Affairs benefits and didn't file a tax return for 2018 or 2019, you have until May 5 to use the non-filer tool on the IRS website to receive the $500 payment per dependent child under 17. If you miss the deadline to register dependent children, you will still get your $1,200 payment, but you will have to wait until next year to get the additional $500 when you file a 2020 tax return.

    The May 5 deadline is only applicable to SSI and VA beneficiaries who need to let the IRS know they have dependents eligible for the $500. No action is necessary if you don't need to register a dependent. Your stimulus payment will be automatically sent just as you would normally receive your benefits by direct deposit, Direct Express debit card or check.

    Social Security and Railroad Retirement beneficiaries who don't file tax returns were given until noon April 22 to claim an extra $500 payment for dependents under 17 - or risk waiting until next year for the funds. The IRS sent the notice about the deadline just two and a half days before people had to act. Unless the deadline is extended, those who missed the cutoff will get their stimulus payments of $1,200 but will now have to wait until next year to collect the extra $500 per child when they file their 2020 tax return.

    Good question. Have combed through IRS FAQ pages and press releases and haven't seen anything on that specifically. I would imagine they would batch you in with Social Security recipients, as you would have info come up with SSA-1099 forms, and that would mean you deposit should be going through hopefully today, or at least in the next few days, sometime this week. That's what is supposed to happen anyways.

    My 7 yr old child receives SSI. I am his payee. When I filed my taxes this year JH said I could not claim him as a dependent on my taxes bc he made half of what I did this year. I received my stimulus check and it didn't have him on the paperwork as a dependent. Does this mean he will receive his own through his direct express card or no??? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    My husband and i are both on SSDI and both have the same bank account with direct deposit. My husband received his $1200 in the last week of April. I would assume we should have got ours on the same day. We are non-filers. Where is my money? I can't even find a way to check on it. Can anyone can tell how to find out my status?
