Economic Impact Payments
What You Need to Know
I was not required to file a tax return in 2018 or 2019. What should I do?
For those whose income levels did not require filing a tax return for 2018 or 2019, or for those who receive veterans disability compensation, a pension, or survivor benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and were not required to file a 2018 or 2019 tax return, you must submit information to the IRS to receive an Economic Impact Payment.
Eligible Social Security and SSDI recipients and railroad retirees, who are otherwise not required to file a return do not need to provide any further information. The IRS will automatically send an Economic Impact Payment.
