ssdi stimulus

Level 1

I received my 1st stimilus into my Bank of America account in March, due to being on ssdi and being diagnosed with a 1 and 14 million neurological disorder, and not driving due to seizures, I switched to PNC bank due to close locations and BOA branches closing close to me. I cannot find any real answers as to what I need to do to correct the stimilus being sent to the closed account. My current account has been on file with SSDI, some say a paper check will be sent, some say I need to file forms, which ones? Where do I locate them, I cannot get the right answer on what to do no matter where I go. I do not file taxes, what do I do? 

Any truth and real help would be so appreciated at this time

Unfortunately the IRS is not being very transparent about this process.  Some people get direct deposit, some people get checks, some people get debit cards, some people get nothing.

If the attempted direct deposit failed then they should issue you either a check or send a debit card to your mailing address on file.  The USPS does not have a good reputation these days (and for good reason IMO) for actually delivering the mail to the right place or in a timely manner but keep in mind we're coming off of a holiday weekend.  So give it a few weeks to see if something arrives.  You may also get a Notice 1444-B in the mail indicating that your payment has been sent.

The IRS recently announced that individual filing season opens on February 12, 2021.  If you don't get the Economic Impact Payment by that point, you should file a tax return claiming a Rebate Recovery Credit (RRC).  There's nothing you or anyone can do until then.

Conclusion:  Everybody's right.  A paper check might be sent, a debit card might be sent, you might need to file a 2020 Form 1040, and you are in the wrong place on the Internet.

They are sending out debit cards that look like junk mail https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/irs-issues-stimulus-warning-about-prepaid-debit-cards/2498079...

I recommend you stop telling the world all of those details while on the internet. You are already lost on the internet, so you just told a bunch of strangers that are from anywhere in the world, about your problems. You need to avoid inviting Scammers to your party.

The info here is for using specific Income Tax Preparation programs.

You might be worrying too soon. There will be continued delivery for a few weeks, yet. And you can check with SSDI, directly.

Stimulus info can be found at these links:





And: "The IRS said you can check the status of your second stimulus payment at IRS.gov/GetMyPayment (GMP).

If GMP reflects a direct deposit date and partial account information, then your payment is deposited there. If the payment was mailed, it may take up to three or four weeks to receive the payment. Watch your mail carefully and be sure not to throw out your payment.
If GMP shows “Payment Status #2 – Not Available,” then you will not receive a second stimulus check and instead you need to claim the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 Tax Return."

Good luck.
