    I can't find anything on this direct issue that I have in regards to the Stimulus Payment and extra $500 for qualifying children. I am on SSI and SSDI I received the $1200 payment on April 29th sans $500. In mid April I went through the Non-Filers portion of the IRS website and entered all of my and my qualifying son's information, 15 yrs old, can not be claimed anywhere else and hasn't, sent and received a message stating that the IRS has accepted my application and I had it in long before the deadline. Fast Foward to April 29th and here I am going nuts trying to figure out what has happened. However I have seen one article stating that it doesn't matter if you did all thimgs correctly and on time, if you did not receive the payment for children then you'll have to file your taxes next year. I can't. So when the letter gets sent to me it was said that if you're money was short to let them know but they also said you're out of luck.

    Really, really confusing situation and yes I know I should be happy I got something but when I'm told I'll be receiving a certain amount I expect the whole amount or I just can't let it go.

    Unfortunately, you will have to wait to get the additional $500 per qualifying child until you file your taxes next year unless the IRS reverses course, which I wouldn't count on.

    “If you did not receive the full amount to which you believe you are entitled, you will be able to claim the additional amount when you file your 2020 tax return. This is particularly important for individuals who may be entitled to the additional $500 per qualifying child dependent payments. For VA and SSI recipients who don’t have a filing requirement and have a child, they need to use the Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov by May 5 in order to have the $500 added automatically to their $1,200 Economic Impact payment. We encourage people to review our “How do I calculate my EIP Payment” question and answer ”
