Stimulus check

Level 1

I am a 77 year old retiree on Social Security and don’t file taxes. My daughter (45years old) is disabled (cerebral palsy) and gets a survivor benefit off her dads record, because she is disabled. I have been all over the irs site and I check the tool every morning but can’t find anything that pertains to our situation, even though I’m sure it’s not an isolated problem. Everything I have read, it sounded like she is entitled to a payment but I wondered since I am her payee and her name isn’t on my bank account, if she might get a paper check, or maybe nothing at all. Her Social Security check is direct deposited in my account since I am her payee. Everything I have read says if you get a Social Security payment (retirement, disabled, survivor), you will get your stimulus check the same way. I got mine via direct deposit 4/29. I’m sure I’m not the only one with this scenario. I just thought someone on here had a similar situation and could tell me if they got theirs and whether it was direct deposit or check. I appreciate any help you have to offer.
