Dont miss the Economic Impact Payment for children!
Federal beneficiaries who didn't register to receive $500 per child payments earlier this year need to register using the non filers tool on the IRS website before the 3 p.m. Eastern November 21 extended due date to receive an EIP, if eligible. This includes federal beneficiaries who already received an Economic Impact Payment (EIP) but did not receive a supplemental $500 payment for qualifying children.
Those eligible to provide this information include people with qualifying children who receive Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Railroad Retirement benefits and Veterans Affairs Compensation and Pension (C&P) benefits and did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019.
The Nov 21 deadline also applies to anyone who did not have a tax filing requirement in 2018 or 2019 and need to register using the non filers tool to get the Economic Impact Payment.
Those who do not register online will get a check.
