The way the Cares Act was written, it explicitly says you can't get a stimulus check if you were claimed as a dependent, no matter what age you are.
And for those claiming dependents, if your claimed dependent is under 17 years of age, then you will get an additional $500 stimulus check. But if they are 17 or older, you won't qualify for any additional stimulus.
Also, they do go off of the most recent tax information. So 2019 info will supercede 2018 info.
All that said, there could be some very good news coming for you. House Democrats are trying to pass a bill today, to go to the Senate, called the HEROES Act. It currently includes a second round of stimulus payments that will this time include payments for all dependents, no matter what age they are. And in some cases, if you missed out/didn't qualify for a stimulus in the first round, they will make up for that and send out two checks. Plus the dependent amount this time will go up from $500 to $1200 per dependent.
Keep in mind, this is far from law, and the Senate has every right to reject this proposal. Or change it dramatically. But know that they are in talks of sending more direct payments to Americans in the near future, and I recommend checking out our thread on the progress on the next round of relief payments here ---
