Stimulus Payments for Recipients of Social Security / SSI

President Obama recently signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This act provides for the one-time payment of $250 to individuals who get Supplemental Security Income or Social Security benefits.

Social Security expects everyone who is entitled to a payment to receive it by late May 2009. They are currently working on the details regarding how they will issue over 60 million one-time payments to beneficiaries.

They will deliver the payment in the same way they currently deliver Social Security or SSI benefits. If they deliver monthly benefits by check, they will deliver the one-time payment by check. If they receive a monthly direct deposit or Direct Express debit card payment, that is how they will receive the one-time payment.

Individuals receiving benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or Railroad Retirement Board may be eligible for these one-time payments.
