Arapahoe County Human Services urges public assistance recipients to secure their federal Coronavirus stimulus payments, and here’s how.
It is not too late to receive your economic impact stimulus payment that is available to all Americans as part of The CARES Act. The Act was passed in March 2020 to provide economic assistance for Americans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These payments started going out in April and aim to give immediate relief to families and individuals during this time. Those who rely on public assistance such as food, financial and medical support should make sure they receive the additional relief that is available to them.
You’re likely to be eligible for an economic impact payment if you:
How much money can I receive?
How will I receive my payment?
The payments are sent automatically to most taxpayers. For taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019, and for most seniors and retirees, no further action is needed. The IRS will transfer the money via direct deposit based on the bank information you provided on your 2019 or 2018 tax return. If bank information isn’t available, a check will be mailed to the address on file.
I am not required to file a tax return. Will I still receive a payment?
Yes, the IRS will be sending you a payment. The IRS has launched a free and easy web-based tool for you to provide basic information, including Social Security number, name, address and dependents. You will have the option to include your bank account information for direct deposit, otherwise your payment will be mailed to you.
The IRS provides scenarios for using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here tool.
