    It is the first of May I am an SSDI recipient who gets my money on a Direct Express Card I was told to do nothing and my money would be on there. I got my regular benefits today on my card but there's no stimulus payment. I haven't received anything yet is anyone else in the same boat?

    I, too, am on SSDI due to a motorcycle accident when I was 20. I am now 54, have had over 20 surgeries for complications on my now fused left ankle. I was getting $778 a month til someone told me I should be getting disability benefits from my state as well. They were supposed to be automatic when I started receiving my benefits from Federal however they weren't and I got back pay for over two and a half years which included my back pay from when I filed. Now I'm living off of $838 a month. At the time I got approved for my disability I was receiving $193 a month in food stamps once I started collecting disability I was knocked down to a $16 a month. I live in a mobile home my rent is 215 a month and my trailer payment is 150 I have a meager life insurance policy $15 a month I can't afford insurance on my vehicle I live in a very rural area so having my benefits deposited on my Direct Express Card suck because the card is not usable at the pump at any gas stations and it's over 40 miles from one 24-hour one to another. I I've been waiting patiently now for my stimulus check to arrive but obviously they have forgotten about me I know I did not receive a 1099 in January and there's no way that I can enter information to the IRS or contact Social Security to find out what happened to it so I probably won't be getting a stimulus payment. It's unfathomable to me that the people who live off of virtually nothing get penalized even more when they try to do use the services or benefits that are supposed to be available to them. Like the food stamps. Like with the other people on here that I have seen I, too, make too little money to qualify for any of the loans or anything that would help me to try to stay afloat. In response to the person who thinks that there are $10,000 homes available everywhere check check buddy you are sadly mistaken. I would not wish living off of this meager amount of money on my worst enemy it's frustrating it's sad and I can understand why a lot of people just give up.

    I am on SSDI and I know I did not receive a 1099 in Jan. I tried going on the Social Security website but they don't recognize my address which they've sent other correspondence to me at and it will not let me get into my account so I can get a copy of my 1099. I do not know if the IRS has my info as I didn't get a 1099 I can't go into their non-filers portal because I get my benefits on a Direct Express card and there's no way I can enter that information is there anyway I can find out if I'm going to be getting my money through direct deposit or not at all?
