When Will People on Disability Receive Their Third Stimulus?Posted March 19, 2021 by Premier Disability Services, LLC®
Those who receive federal aid through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can expect to receive their third stimulus payment in “the same way as their regular benefits.” However, a payment date has yet to be announced by the IRS.
“Social Security and other federal beneficiaries will generally receive this third payment the same way as their regular benefits. A payment date for this group will be announced shortly,” the IRS advised on March 12.
The U.S. Bureau of the Fiscal Service explains: “Federal benefit payments, such as Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans, are required to receive your payment electronically. You must either have the money deposited directly to a bank or credit union account or get your money each month on a Direct Express prepaid debit card.”
Third stimulus funds sent to Direct Express card accounts that were recently closed “will be returned and the IRS will reissue the payment,” the website notes.
