    I also am on SSDI and haven't gotten my payment or even a payment date. This whole thing is one big mess and it makes sense why the IRS isn't taking any calls and it's because they know they screwed up badly and they don't want 2 have 2 explain themselves well eventually someone is going 2 have 2 address this and get all of us our payments. I hope and pray that each of us gets them very soon, good luck 2 all of U and God Bless.

    I just got a message on messenger from a Woman named Vivian Rex who claimed that she got my Stimulus Check by mistake and said that she would mail it 2 me if I paid her $100 now that is clearly a scam so I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and I hope that people are aware of things like this. It is really sad that people will scam others because they know how desperate they are. I knew this was not true because I am on SSDI and my payment hasn't been mailed out yet because I am getting my payment direct deposited at least that is what everybody has been telling me will happen just the same way I usually get my monthly Social Security benefits each month. Again I encourage people 2 pay attention and watch out for things like that. If it was real no good decent person would charge $100 to forward a piece of mail 2 someone.

    Also those of us on Social Security of any kind like myself on Disability was told that we didn't have 2 file our taxes. Well I started SSDI in 2018 and therefore did not file in 18 or 19 and I was told that Social Security gave my bank information to the IRS. My question now is since I was misinformed do I now have 2 file on the Non Filers page so that the IRS has my bank information and can Direct Deposit my payment or should I just wait til the check comes in the mail. Problem is Direct Deposit is much faster and I need my payment soon but I am concerned that if I do that it will be mailed automatically. Can anyone please give or share any advice or suggestions?

    Ok I just like everyone else is completely confused and upset. I am on SSDI and was told that we didn't have 2 do anything 2 get our payments so patiently we did just that. Then we get an update from the IRS saying that people who do not update their Direct Deposit information by May 13th are gonna have a check mailed out to them. They started processing payments in my group on April 29th which was 2 weeks ago so if they wanted us 2 use the Non Filers page to update our Direct Deposit information then ok fine but why wait til the last damn min and most people even questioned doing this then because so many were told that by using the Non Filers page we would be getting a check and not Direct Deposit. Does all of this make any sense at all? Why did the IRS have 2 make this so damn difficult and confusing in the 1st place? If they had just stuck 2 what they had told people a lot of these problems could have been prevented. Also if they kept 2 the dates and timelines that they notified people about in the beginning. But what made this whole thing a giant mess that could have been avoided was 2 accept phone calls from people who were struggling and having issues, yes it would have been busy but a whole lot of these issues could have been resolved if all they did was just take phone calls from people who needed their help. So now many people who haven't gotten their payments may now not even get them in the 1st place when they are needed now not 3 or 4 months later. I am willing 2 bet that anyone who is reading this will agree that the IRS screwed up badly and most importantly all of this could have been avoided and even prevented and that is what has caused so much stress because none of this had 2 happen period.
