Social Security recipients will automatically receive economic impact payments.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the IRS have announced that Social Security beneficiaries who are not typically required to file tax returns will not need to file an abbreviated tax return to receive an Economic Impact Payment. Instead, payments will be automatically deposited into their bank accounts.
The IRS will use the information on the Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to generate the payments. Recipients will receive these payments as direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their benefits.
