Got My Second Stimulus Check But Not My Child’s $600 Payment – Same Issues As Original $500 Dependent Check


This article was last updated on January 24

The recently passed $900 billion COVID relief bill includes another round of stimulus payments for adults and ALL qualifying dependent children under the age of 17 at the end of 2020. While the adult stimulus check amount was only $600, half of the original $1200 stimulus payment, in order to keep the overall stimulus package price tag reasonable for Republican Senators to approve, the new dependent stimulus payment will be $100 more at $600 per qualified dependent. You can see full details of this payment and updated income thresholds in this article.

[Updated January 20th] The IRS is still sending dependent stimulus payments but it’s ONLY to the taxpayers whose payment got deposited into a wrong account or waiting to get it by check or debit card. The IRS will not be issuing new or additional payments to anyone who hasn’t yet received their expected dependent stimulus payment and has no payment status showing in the GMP tool. I spoke to them by phone because like all of you I didn’t receive it either. I was told I HAVE to file taxes even if I’m a non filer. They are prepping up their system for tax filing season and have no time to issue missing dependent payments unfortunately. See the FAQs below on how to claim your missing or incorrect dependent stimulus via a recovery rebate credit (RRC)

Biden Executive order for Treasury to provide online tool for claiming missing stimulus payments

[Update Jan 25th] There may be some hope for those who yet to receive their stimulus payment (and have not or cannot claim it via their tax return) following President Biden’s recent executive order instructing the treasury department reopen the non-filers tool or create a new tool for people to claim their missing or partially paid stimulus checks. While details are still to be released by the Treasury Department (under which the IRS falls), who would be responsible for implementing this executive order, it would likely include both adult and dependent stimulus payments.

Also I have posted two recent videos on this topic – one is a detailed review of the $600 Dependent Stimulus and the subsequent one is a Q&A for Issues People are Seeing with this Payment (please like and subscribe if you find these videos useful).

Issues with my Second Dependent Stimulus Check (Recovery Rebate) Payments

Like the first round of dependent payments (see updates below), many readers are reporting similar issues with the IRS payments for the second child dependent stimulus payment, despite already having received their adult stimulus checks. At this point it is best to wait for the IRS to finish processing (January 15, 2021), especially if you had issues with the first round of payments. They will be using your 2019 tax return or Non-Filer data (for those who don’t file a tax return) as of November 21st, 2020 to determine how and who gets paid.

If you haven’t yet received your stimulus payment you will need to check state on the IRS website (Get My Payment GMP Tool), call their call center (later in January 2021 is better) or just file for this when you submit your 2020 tax return in 2021. Major tax software providers like Turbo Tax and Tax Act are updating their software to allow tax payers to claim their missing first or second stimulus payment as a recovery rebate with their 2020 tax filing.

Its Mid-January and I Still haven’t got my payment. Help!

Based on the comments below and on the videos above a lot of people are still reporting they have yet to receive their dependent stimulus payment, despite having received their adult stimulus check. The IRS is still processing payments, including those by direct deposit, check and debit card, so you need to keep checking the status for your payment online as it could change (only updated nightly). The IRS has also noted issues with payments related to tax filing with some large tax filing providers and mistakes on their end that required them to redirect payments (e.g. incorrect bank account) as checks and debit cards. However if you have not received your stimulus payment by the end of January or get a status in GMP tool saying it will be paid ten the only recourse you will likely have is to claim it via filing a 2020 tax return (see free options here at TurboTax).

Can I update dependent information in the non-filers tool?

The non-filers tools is closed for updates now. So if you haven’t got paid or the GMP tool is not showing payment by check or debit card by now, you won’t be get automatically paid and really only have two options left – either claim it via a recovery rebate credit in your tax return or hope that the IRS reopens the non-filer tool at some point (or works with agency to figure out missed payments). I think the later option will mean several months delays if the first stimulus was any indication. Even if you don’t file (and didn’t expect to this year) you may need to do so to get your payment sooner. You can also use this approach to update your dependent information and bank account details. Also note if you don’t file and someone else (e.g. an ex spouse) does file a 2020 tax return legitimately claiming your dependent they will get the stimulus payment and you may permanently miss out. So file unless you have a strong reason not too or are okay with potentially waiting months or missing out on the stimulus payment. With a third Biden stimulus payment likely in March or April 2021, this makes not filing a less appealing option.

No Deposit in Your Bank Account? Then you may be getting a Debit Card in the Mail

Per the latest IRS processing schedule update, they have nearly completed paying the second stimulus check payments that were sent out by direct deposit. This includes dependent payments. They are now processing stimulus payments that were known to have errors and as a result millions of taxpayers will receive their second Economic Impact Payments (stimulus checks) by debit card instead. These prepaid debit cards are faster and more secure than checks, and can easily converted to cash.

Note that the form of payment for the second stimulus check may be different than the first one (even if you got it late via check). Some people who received a paper check last time might receive a prepaid debit card this time, and some people who received a prepaid debit card last time may receive a paper check. People can check the status of both their first and second payments by using the IRS’ Get My Payment tool, which will show the mailing date for these debit cards. If you have not received your stimulus payment in the mail (debit card or check) by the end of January and the GMP tool has does not show the payment then the only recourse you will likely have is to claim it via filing a 2020 tax return.

How do I claim the missing stimulus check payment for my dependents if I don’t file a return and don’t plan to in 2020 (e.g. social security recipient)?

Getting a lot of comments from people who don’t file taxes and wondering how they can claim the missing stimulus check for their dependents (or themselves). Basically even if you don’t file taxes you still had to file a Non filers form on the IRS website. It’s too late as of now to file that from and get the second payment out to you as that deadline has passed (was Nov 20th, 2020) and the non-filers tool is closed. The IRS is now recommending that even non-filers must file Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR to claim the missing stimulus payments (officially known as a Recovery Rebate Credit). Anyone with income of $72,000 or less can file this form for free through most large tax providers like Turbo Tax or Tax Act, or electronically for free through the IRS Free File Program

2018 vs 2019 return data causing payment issues

Several people are reporting (in comments below and video above) that they are seeing payment issues with the second round of payments. One significant item I am seeing cause these issues is that the IRS used 2018 returns in several instances for the first dependent stimulus payment, while this time they are only using people’s 2019 return (or non-filers data from first stimulus payment). So if your data is different between the two years then your dependent check will have payment issues.

Other items to check for: Ensure no one else has claimed your dependent. If you have an ex-spouse or another guardian who are claimed them in their 2019 return (or via non-filer tool) then you will have issues getting the second round of dependent stimulus (recovery rebate) payments. Note that the IRS will not be deducting

Missing Payment Status means no automatic stimulus

According to the IRS, if the GMP reflects a direct deposit date and partial account information, then your payment has been sent via direct deposit. If you see a mailing date, that’s when a check or debit card was sent and could take 3 to 4 weeks to get to you. However if you get the status of “Payment Status #2 – Not Available” on the Get My Payment (GMP) stimulus tracker tool, it means you won’t be getting the second stimulus check automatically sent to you. Instead you would have to claim in your 2020 tax return filing and claim it is a recovery rebate credit. There is no second round of automatic payments for this status

Also the IRS is making payments in several batches, so you may get your adult stimulus check first and your dependent one a few days or weeks later if processed in subsequent payment batches. This is likely the case if you had issues with your first payment and faced delays when getting.

[Update on First Stimulus payment for Dependents] As you can see from the many recent comments on this article, it looks like the GAO (Government Accountability Office) and IRS have resolved glitches on the non-filer portal for those who do not file a tax return. This means the $500 dependent stimulus, approved under the CARES act, which was missing for many eligible recipients is now being processed. Those who missed getting their payments with their original $1200/$2400 stimulus check have reported that starting July the IRS has been mailing and depositing their overdue payments. So they no longer need to wait till 2021 to file their return or wait for another fix to get the much needed $500 payment.

Per the IRS, “The IRS corrected the programming error on May 17, 2020. The IRS will automatically issue additional $500 EIP per qualifying child to affected individuals in early August.  Direct deposit payments are scheduled for August 5, 2020, and paper checks or debit cards are scheduled to be mailed August 7, 2020.”

Further, another $500 dependent stimulus payment has all but been confirmed under the latest stimulus package being developed in Congress. You can see further details in this article. The good news is that eligibility for this payment will be expanded for those under 24 (vs under 17 in first payment). You should expect to see this payment paid along with the second stimulus check for eligible recipients.

Spouse’s past-due child support. The IRS is also actively working to resolve cases where a portion or all of an individual’s payment was taken and applied to their spouse’s past-due child support. People in this situation do not need to take any action. The IRS will automatically issue the portion of the stimulus check that was applied to the other spouse’s debt.

[Previous Update] With over 100 million stimulus payments made, one of the most concerning questions I am seeing is around individuals or families receiving the standard adult stimulus check (a.k.a economic impact payment) of $1200 or $2400 but not receiving the $500 payment for each of their qualified child dependents. Here is what I found when looking into this further.

The first thing to check is that you do indeed meet all the required income and qualify child criteria (e.g under 17) for the $500 per dependent child stimulus payment. Remember for most Americans this is based on your 2018 or 2019 (whichever was the latest) tax return filed and approved by the IRS. Not your current situation or changes since you filed your last return.

The criteria to receive this kids stimulus credit is even higher thank the Child Tax Credit (CTC), so if you didn’t qualify for the CTC in past years you won’t qualify for this payment either.

Social Security retirement, disability benefits (SSDI) and Railroad Retirement benefit recipients and for those that earn too little to file a tax return need to have registered via the IRS’ Non Filers payment update tool to receive the $500 per dependent child payment in addition to their $1,200 individual payment. This is because the IRS does not have the the qualifying dependent information for these groups.

So I did all of the above and met all criteria but still didn’t get the $500 kid payment? Some possible answers.

For many recipients, who have met all the criteria for the child stimulus, the reason they haven’t yet got a stimulus check is due to the fact the IRS systems processing these payments are truly not working due to technical or data glitches around how the IRS systems manages dependent information. Eg if your child’s information has gaps or missing information or you didn’t provide a valid SSN in your latest tax return then no payment will be made.

Those using the IRS non-filers tool to enter dependent information have also been disproportionately impacted by the missing $500 payments. This is likely another technical glitch with the fillable form as discussed subsequent to the IRS update below.

The other likely explanation you didn’t get the payment is because someone else claimed the dependent on their tax return or in a later filing than yours. This is a big issue for families that are divided, filing separately or where the dependent is not a direct child of the claimant. So you need to make sure that you were the sole claimant or someone else may have received the $500 payment. Finally your payment can be intercepted for overdue child support payments. So you may have gotten the payment but it went to your spouse or someone else who claimed the child.

Another common error being reported is that those who did not owe or did not get a refund on their latest return are stuck in limbo within IRS payment systems because the IRS does not have their banking details. The IRS is aware of these types of issues and trying to correct them in ongoing system update. They have advised they are doing multiple batches of stimulus check payments and those whose payment were held by due to IRS errors may start seeing them in coming weeks (mailed out via paper checks)

One reader left a comment that stated the following, “We got the payment for myself and my wife and it was deposited into an account that was only set up a few months ago so we know they used the information from our 2019 return (plus we weren’t required to file in 2018). But while that return has all the info for both our 5 year old and our 1 year old we did not receive the $500 for either of them. The deposit we received was $2400 instead of $3400. This is especially frustrating because we actually weren’t required to file in 2019 either, but we used the TurboTax thing that came out a couple of weeks before payments started and was marketed as the fastest way for non-filers to get their info to the IRS (which was actually by filing a very limited return). So we went out of our way to use this tool which was supposedly put out in partnership between Intuit and the IRS to get them our info and they still screwed it up? ‍

The above comment confirms another potential cause for the missing $500 payment attributed to filing a simple return via Tax software providers (like Turbo Tax, HR Block) which has caused issues when it comes to the IRS processing dependent payments for these filings. The evidence is anecdotal but the above comment does confirm what many lower income Americans are seeing. Hopefully the IRS fixes this (or provides a number to call) or they’ll have to wait till filing their 2020 return to claim the $500 payment.

Can I call the IRS? At this point there is little recourse for most people trying to resolve this by speaking to someone at the IRS. The agency however just announced they are adding live representatives to take calls on the stimulus check payments (see details here). Most people will still however have to wait for their Economic Impact Payment letter as a way to confirm payment and follow-up on missing or incorrect payments.

IRS Update on $500 payment – Unfortunately the IRS has confirmed that those who did not receive the full amount of their expected stimulus payment, including the supplementary $500 child dependent payment, will need to claim the additional amount when they file their 2020 tax return. This is a tough break for many families who needed/expected the $500 payment as soon as possible and were hoping to get a supplementary or corrective payment in the mail sometime in the near future. You’ll now need to wait till 2021 when you file your tax return to fix this and get paid the child stimulus if you are eligible.

VA and SSI recipients may have a little more time to have the $500 added automatically to their standard stimulus check payment by using the Non-Filers tool (via IRS website). However they must file by May 5th to qualify or like most American’s they will have to wait until 2021 to get the additional $500 when filing a 2020 tax return.

Note, a number of comments below indicate that even using the non-filers tools is causing issues with receiving this payment. There seems to be a problem with the online form where there is no box to check to claim your kids as dependents , even though you put in all their information (the printed form seems to have this). I am sure the IRS is looking into this, but looks like yet another technical/coding glitch with the non-filers tool that is just using online fill-able forms.

Direct Express Account Holders: You may use the Non-Filers tool, but you cannot receive your and your children’s payment on your Direct Express account. You may only select a bank account for direct deposit or leave bank information blank and receive the money by mail.

Both parents received the $500 payment. So a few unmarried or separated parents with an eligible child commented that they both got the $500 child stimulus payment as they filed separately. The good news, or loophole is that there is no provision in the law requiring repayment of the payment. So you get to keep it if you get it. The IRS will send Notice 1444, Your Economic Impact Payment, to each parent and they should keep the notice for their 2020 tax records.

  1. I’m just another drop of water in this full 50 gal drum.
    I didn’t receive my dependent daughter’s stimulus either. But you knoe these clowns in charge are getting their hefty salary deposits on time.

  2. Ok so wait a sec, I’m not in the VA or SSI category, I’m an unemployed mom with four kids and I really could use that extra 500$ per kid. (I filled out the non-filers info on their site, it said it was accepted, but never received my kids’ 500$.) So with no job, and nothing to report for taxes, how would I be able to claim my children as dependents?

    1. The error is going to happen to everyone who uses that free file website because it was coded wrong. It does not provide an area for subsection 4 that provides the correct information to input. The entire page was screwed up by whoever put it together and the team of incomptance that pushed the page forward without properly reviewing the actual form that is being submitted.

      This is going to be an issue FOR EVERYONE who uses that page and files this way. No matter what the government needs to be made aware of this, please call your local representatives, ive left phone messages emailed mine and local news.

      This needs to be corrected by them NOW.

  3. Number 285 here! Non-filer that received my stimulus, but not my childs. From what I understand, they’re saying, “just file for it next year.” Well, if I’m a non-filer, how should I go about doing that? Hopefully, they’ll figure something out, to solve that.

  4. I also did not receive the 500 dependent credit and I filed for my dependent just like the irs asked to do if you are on ssi and I still didn’t get it. The stimulus package is to stimulate the economy for 2020 and not 2021. Plus being on ssi you do not have to file taxes if you don’t make enough, so I think the irs knows what they are doing and someone is getting the extra money from the 2.2 trillion deficit.

    In my situation I have sent a letter to my governor whether he can help or not I feel if plenty of people do this and make this issue a bigger issue then it will get corrected sooner. Hopefully

    1. I receive SSI and I have an 11 yr old and tried the non filers and it wouldn’t go through. So my cousin works at a local tax company and sent ours through and I received mine but never received her 500. I’d like too know why.

  5. I have not received the $500 for my child either! I’m a single mom with full custody. My ex hasn’t put her on his taxes in 4 years so I’m pretty mad about this. No number to call etc.

  6. I just talked to a reporter on the YouTube channel WUSA9 she knows what’s going on! If you want to watch it she will be on tonight with answers! It’s a delay!

    1. The error is going to happen to everyone who uses that free file website because it was coded wrong.

    2. The reporter needs to know this what another person has written as well..the IRS website is screwed up and we all need to really drill this on top the IRS on twitter and facebook and live News story of the CNN news or FOX or CNBC of MSNBC or a channel where people can be contacted to share their horrific experience they are facing for their kids

    3. What time is the reporter from the u tube channel coming on and is she going to help us

  7. I emailed Terry savage on this. She said verbatim “Due to new information that was released today, the checks should come separately in the mail. Patience!” Fingers crossed! Again..

    1. I have emailed my state represenatative with what I found out on the free file webpage and the subsection 4 being incorrect on the form and the print out.

      I suggest we all do the same, put them to work. The house can make things happen without even being in office. Either way the government needs to be informed of the mess up on their webpage and no one can contact the irs to tell them as the corona virus pandemic is ongoing

    2. Hi, I also got my adult stimulus payment but no payment foe either dependent child.

      I’m divorced Head of Household and the only parent responsible for my children. Which information is more current; that the checks are coming separately or that we will need to wait until filing taxes in 2021?

      Today is May 1, 2020

      Thank you.

    3. hi leah, first of all i would like to thank you for everything you are doing and have done in order to find some sort of solution to this. Many people would not know where to start to find a solution. Now if I may I would like to know when you say the checks should come separately in the mail would you happen to be referring to the missing $500 per eligible child that has seem to found its way into a glitch. Thank you again for your help. God bless

      1. I am not sure of that either :-( I am just as lost. I copied what she wrote to me. The way I am hearing t is that the dependent checks will come in the mail..? Maybe.. my sisters friend receives ssi and ssdi and had her check direct deposited in the first batch of stimulus checks. She was upset when she didnt receive her childrens stimulus but this past Saturday she got a 1500 dollar check for them. I am only hoping this is the case for all of us and they are just behind. But I still cant say for positive nor do I want to get Hope’s up, including myself. I promised my children laptops with their checks so they can stop sharing mine for school. I couldnt break my promise and walmart and every other local store around me was completely sold out. Best buy had some in stock but were 600 a piece. I had to take the whole stimulus check then some to get their laptops considering now I am a teacher to my children but not being paid for well as all of you I’m sure. Anyway, here is what was sent to my email reply..and it’s not much to go on:

        It appears from a release put out today that those payments for children of SSI will come separately. Patience!

        1. Hi, I also contacted my state rep in Massachusetts as well as CNN since they were asking people about their experience with the website. I have same problems all of you do. Used non filers app added my 9 year olds information and my bank information. Received email from IRS saying my return was accepted. When I went on get my payment it had date payment was being deposited but last 4 numbers of account didn’t belong to me now or ever. The only reason we found check is because my mother got call from her friend who works at her bank saying a payment in my name was flagged because they were trying to deposit it into an account she closed two years ago. How IRS got any of my mothers info is beyond me since I checked my return and everything was correct. She was able to deposit it in her active account but I didn’t receive $500 for my daughter. Just $1200 sorry that was a wicked long story I know I just wanted to let you know I am dealing with the same problem.

  8. Someone needs to throw a fit. Waiting until 2021? How does that help during the pandemic? I need that $1000 now not in a year!

  9. I filed my 2019 with my dependents youngest 1 and didn’t receive nothing but 1,200 only for myself…a single mom was looking for that extra 1500 for my kids And to only get a deposit for just 1,200 callled turbo tax they telling me that was the IRS mistake, not understanding or sure this crazy

  10. I didn’t receive the $500 so i went to the IRS non filers portal and submitted new forms for my daughters individually just like i did for myself. I changed the bank acct info to their personal SSI direct deposit accounts and it allowed me to submit them. I know it’s a long shot, but they are ssi recipients who dont file taxes and i didnt file and claim them so it was worth a shot

    1. I am at a loss at what to do here.. I filed my 2019 return back in early March. I claimed my son and listed his ss# on my return, I did not receive the $500.00. While I am grateful I received the $1200.00, I am still not sure why I did not receive the $500.00 for my son. My bank account number was listed on my 2019 return which is where the $1200.00 was deposited into. There is no live person to talk to at IRS and there is no answer given in the FAQ on the IRS page related to my concern. My ex could not have claimed him, because it was not his year to claim my son. Even if he tried to, a red flag would have come up when he went to file as two people can’t claim the same dependent.. is what my tax accountant told me.. If the $500.00 stimulus did go to my ex by mistake, this is very sad because he still owes money for child support he isn’t paying. Meanwhile I am a single Mom just trying to survive. The $500.00 would have been nice for my son. What can I do?

    2. Might mess you up down the line with SSI since you are their dependent. But that is not a bad idea on how to Trick their mistake of a system.

  11. Same here we not require to file. I feel like next year when we try claim the money we going be told no.

    1. I just received my $1200 paper check in the mail this morning but my daughters $500 wasnt on there. I’m on ssi and dont file. Now what? They said that people with Direct Express card it would automatically go on the card but if u have dependents then it will be a paper check. I got a DE card and they sent but left my 11 year old daughter out.

  12. I am on ssdi and have 1 dependent 16 year old child who nobody else can claim and receives child benefits through my disability insurance. I get a 1099 for both of us so there is that. I also actually filed a paper tax return the day they said we had to file to get the checks. Then I also used the non-filers tool completed everything correctly and like everyone else I did not receive my 500.00 for my daughter. I am a single mom and we need this money like you all do. Contact your congressman!!

  13. I too have been impacted by the stimulus check, I received my stimulus but my two sons in it ages 1 and 13.. I was hoping to use the money to pay for my rent and now we are in more of a struggle than ever.. I am the sole person that claims both of my kids on my taxes.. This is just bull poop.. This is just another way of setting us back.. Thank for the money, our own money, but don’t give it to us the full amount. I don’t expect the news to cover this story)

  14. I did not get my $500 for 2 dependents either, and I filled out everything correctly! I feel cheated! On ssi and cannot file regular taxes. I believe the IRS knows we were not getting the $500 dependent payments and was purposely done.

    1. Same here we not require to file. I feel like next year when we try claim the money we going be told no.

    2. The IRS IS FILTHY!! I did not get my $500 for my 16yr old son because his info was stolen and some random person claimed him in 2018 when i didn’t file and they just his $500 dependent money. Yea way to IRS 2 middle fingers to you and your whole organization. YOU (IRS) just payed me and my sons money to a thief, but hey they will not take calls about stimulus.

    3. I feel it was a data input error by the individual creating the form. However it should have been reveiwed by multiple people prior to going live. One of the largest issues is the IRS using the legacy system and attempting to interface with it via a modern website. IF a human was reviewing this, it wouldve been noticed the first day. The amount of people that are having this happen it would have been apperant to a human that it was an error in amount of people with large amounts of dependents claiming them but not checking a radio box for the stimulus check while doing a return just to get the stimulus check.

      The error is extremely in their ballpark I expect them to fix this, or if anyone votes these idiots back in, they better be ready to expect what they get.

  15. Me and my wife also only received 2400 dollars and we have 3 kids and we are on disability and I filled out the non filers information 2 weeks before deadline makes nonsense we are real upset we live on limited income and need that money the government needs to fix this

  16. I also used the non-filers portal to register in order to get the $500 for my child. I did receive my $1200 & did NOT receive the $500 for my 13 yr old child. My biggest question is this…..HOW CAN WE WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR TO CLAIM THIS $500 WHEN WE FILE OUR 2020 TAXES WHEN WE DON’T FILE TAXES???!!!

    1. That’s their loophole.
      I also think it’s really big coincidence that all the IRS offices are closed until after the deadline for filing these forms. (May 5) Like they knew people were gonna be pissed, so they all just decided to stay home long enough to avoid all the angry phone calls.

  17. My husband, myself and our 16 yr old son all receive SSI. I filed on the IRS non-filers online for all three of us. On April 29 I received $2,400 direct deposit stimulus for my husband and I, nothing for our child. Since my son receives SSI already his money should have been automaticly put onto his Direct Express card which is how he gets his payments but got nothing!!! So very discouraging to know that so many people besides us who need that promised money will probably never see it. There are others receiving payments for deceased family members and overpayments which they DO NOT have to return but they cant get the promised child payments out to those who need them. What a very screwed up mess!!!! And the fact that they know this is happening and they are not helping anyone by phone, email or in person is just rediculous!!!

  18. I to did not receive it. Filed all information via non filer form before the 22nd. Received confirmation that it was accepted before the 22nd. I am on SSDI, 2 of my 3 sons are disabled and on SSSI and they are connected to my SSN as I am the rep payee. I entered all 3 into the form with SSNs. Got the $1200 for me and a big goose egg for them. This was to be used to catch ya up on April bills and to help pay for May bills. With my state opening back up, all help resources are either spent or stopped. That extra was very needed to help us….yet other who used the non filers form NOT on SSDI/SSI got theirs. People who filed taxes also got theirs. This is a problem. It seems the issue is only for those on SSDI/SSI.

  19. I see by reading here im not in this alone, i got my $1200 in my account this morning but nno $500. each for my two boys. im a single dad doing this with no other Family. so i do understand how you feel. i was really counting on that money for Bills also. being its an Election Year, you would thing they would try a little harder to help the ones that put then in office! so we are to just wait in Limbo indefinately until Hell freezes over i guess. Sorry just Venting.

  20. I guess I’m definitely not the only one. I receive ssdi/ssi. I have 3 children 11,8,and 2. 2 of whom receive survivors benefits from their dad. I filled out the non-filers on April 11th to be on the safe side. I got an email saying approved. Then I checked the GET MY PAYMENT , it kept saying no payment status. Then April 24th it said my payment would be deposited to my bank account on April 29th. Well it was direct deposited,but for only $1,200. I did not receive the dependent portion. No one else can claim them. We needed that money just like everyone else.We need a car to get around for essential. I can’t keep ordering online., Shipping adds up. Who can we contact?

  21. My children and myself recieve survivor benefits due to my husband passing. I too did everything I was told to do. The IRS accepted my information immediately after doing it. I did get the 1,200 but did not get the 500.00 per child. No one can claim them, so it’s extremely frustrating to do everything correctly and still sit with no answers as to why it’s not there.

  22. I heard that if you did not receive the $500 child stimulus money, you’ll have to wait til next year and you can claim it on your taxes? What if i won’t have a job to file taxes on next year? With everything going on, schools closed and having to do school at home now, i really don’t see being able to get a job

  23. I recieved my 1,200 for myself I used it to pay bills and get my kids internet for school. I did the nonfilers website placed my kids as my dependents. No one else can claim them I have both physical and legal custody of my kids and don’t recieve child support.
    I don’t make enough to file taxes so there won’t be a file next year because I am disabled and a student.
    I never recieved the 500 for my 2 kids and I can’t find any link or help on IRS nor Google.
    Anyone else having problems.

    1. Same. I get survivor benefits for myself and children. I don’t file taxes and no one can claim my children. My non filers was accepted, I got the 1,200 but not the extra 1,000 for my 2 children.

  24. So it seems as though everyone who filed through the non-filer portal has been cheated out of the dependant credit due to a glitch. When filing the “revised tax form” through the non-filers portal u answer a few questions, mark ur boxes and done. However, if you log back into the form site and select “print” you will see your dependants info and a box that should be check marked for claiming dependant. It is impossible to check mark the box using the form they have us filling out. Waste of time. Seems like it will be only adults receiving the payments until they get the glitch fixed. :(

    1. I didn’t even use the non filer I h&r block to file a simply tax return and I still got nothing for my three children. I think IRS BSing us

  25. I have somewhat of a different problem. I am on Social Security and I received my $1,200 stimulus in my account. I am representative payee for my 41 year old son, who is on SSDI. He receives his Ssdi payments into a different bank account set up in my name for him?? He has not received his stimulus!!, nowhere to cool or no one to contact to rectify any of our situations!! Go figure

  26. I also didnt get our 500 per kid! i filed on time and with the right tool, also no one claimed our kids and we did everything they told us.

  27. It seems as though any one on government assistance, such as SSI, SSDI, VETERANS,so on and so on, and that has dependents , none of us received the $500 per child. The IRS said two different things for us they said that it was going to be automatically the payments then they said if we wanted the money towards a dependent we had to go on a non-filers thing so I’m thinking if the money was automatic that they went to the SSA, department they never even looked on the nonfilers website so hopefully after May 5 we will get our money for our children

  28. I got my stimulus today, but just for my husband and I, not our 4 kids.I have our tax info correctly, ( birthdates ssn) no one else claims them, we’ve been the only ones to claim them since they were born( 17,16,15 and 4). I dont know why we wouldnt have gotten the 500 for each of them?

  29. Same here. I filed the non filers with the IRA and withing a week and half I received mine but not for my children. Not sure why everything was filled out correctly I even went back to check all the Info. Hopefully it gets fixed.

  30. This is ridiculous. It seems A LOTTT or majority if not all people who used non filer tool didn’t receive the payment for their children. I only received the payment for myself and not for my 2 year old son. This is horrible for a lot of us that are out of work right now. Also to have to wait a year to receive money that we were told we’d be getting to help us NOW… just seems unacceptable. Yet many people are receiving over payments or payments they aren’t suppose to receive. I hope they fix this and fix it soon.

  31. Looks like we are all in the same boat. I also used the non filer tool. I’ve been in nursing school the last 2 years so I received no income to file just a lot of school loan debt. Just graduated and can not take my NCLEX. My last scheduled date got canceled due to the pandemic with the next available not until late July. I also read online the best solution was to wait for this letter from The White House. I intercepted a family members letter and there is no true helpful information as everyone has stated. Yes, I agree that hopefully they get HELP available to us all soon.

    1. Forgot, yes I have 2 children ages 5 yrs and 15 yrs and only received the $1,200.

  32. Also, the same got $1200 for me, but not for my two kids. Used non filer. All is correct on form.

  33. I am a Single mom of a 8yr old and a 1yr old . I got the 1,200 for myself but didn’t receive the 500 for my kids? I filed under the non filers as well as alot of people.

  34. My family lives off of just my husband’s VA disability. We do not file taxes and used the IRS tool for non filers on April 14th. My husband and I received the 2,400 but not the 1500 for our three children who are 7, 5, and 3. They cannot be claimed by anyone else and our form was accepted by the irs all of the info was correct for each of our children. It is so difficult to take care of a 100 percent disabled veteran and be promised this money for help and then only get about half while reading dead people are getting this payment and do not have to pay this back. This is again blamed on glitches and errors, that should have been resolved already.

  35. Same problem did the steps on the tool got only my stimulus 1,200 entered my children information they are 7yrs old and 10 didn’t get the 500 for each child is anyone having the same problem.

    1. Yes I have a 6 year old girl I did everything correct and did not receive $500 for her.

      1. Me too. 2 kids, 7 and 11, no one else can claim them. Only got 1,200. How can we contact them to get this fixed?

      2. Me too. 2 kids, 7 and 11, no one else can claim them. Only got 1,200. How can we contact them to get this fixed?

  36. Hi same as everyone one else. I’m on ssi for my son who is 13. I received my stimulus check direct deposit today but not the 500 for both of kids which are 13 and 6. Know one claims them on any kinda taxes and I did everything they ask of me like the non-filing filter with all the correct information. I really can use that money specifically being a single mother. Someone needs to fix this hopefully ASAP

      1. I filed on April 13th. I believe that was the first day they had the non filers link on the website. I, like a lot of you, didn’t get the $500 for my 10 year old daughter but I did receive the money for myself I hope we still get it! Do you all think we will still get it ?

        1. I also have 5 children in my case on SSI via my deceased wives survival benefit and I got my payment, didnt receive not one $500 payment for any of my children and I also went on the first day, filled everything out and it was accepted also.

          Shame on our government for doing this, they need to pull everyone they did this to and pay us now. It will not help anyone in 2021 after we all have been removed from our houses from failure to pay bills due to this mess.

          Thanks government, as usual you came through so well for those of us in true need. /s

      2. You’re not alone! We filed the day after you, am on ssi/ssd & have 3 kids… 2 who are disabled & didn’t get their checks when we received ours today. I hope that this is just an oversight & they mail their checks soon, but I fear we will have to file taxes in 2021 even though we don’t make enough to do so… just to see those $500/a piece checks. So much for helping needy families. The banks & big businesses got their billions while we languish in Corona Depression Era.

  37. Another – Did not receive the $500 for my 2 year old child. Used the non-filer tool. I hope this is a glitch that they will remedy quickly! Too many people with the same issue for it to be a coincidence. Just pray the money will be miraculously deposited into our accounts or mailed. Perhaps they could develop an online tool that we can file for the discrepancy. That would be the simplest!

    1. We’re in the same boat…nicknamed ‘IRS Titanic’.
      I hope the same thing but ‘simple’ is the state of mind over there, not the way they solve problems. Leave it to the bureaucracy to turn a simple process of sending every single adult & child living in the U.S. a stimulus payment/check into an absolute, reality-star-studded sh!tshow with golden showers thrown in for extra piquancy.
      We filed non-filers on 04.16 & added our 3 kids. The IRS deducted our 3 children from our stimulus checks & therefore our necessities keep getting pushed into the pile of ‘waiting for armageddon ‘
      Our only message from them? “Payment complete & sent to your financial institution”. Why, thank you! Thank you for the pittance & thanks for cutting our pittance by 38.5%!

  38. My wife and I received $2400 but NOT the additional $1500 for the 3 minor children we have. We filled the “non-filers” form and input dependent SS# and today 4/30/20 was the date IRS claimed we would receive the stimulus payment. I also completed the form before the 4/22/20 deadline.
    Does anyone know why?

    1. Exactly the same situation. I entered my dependent info, and my return was accepted on 4/17. On 4/30, I show a pending deposit for $1200, but there is no payment of $500 for child. I am a disabled, single mother.

  39. Obviously, a huge problem ongoing with dependent 500.00 payment. I filed for the dependent payment for my 12 yr old aughter on the non filers tool well before Apr 22nd deadline. I got 1200.00 but like all of you, NO 500.00 dependent payment.
    I’m on SSDI. I believe IRS should give us our money owed since we did everything they asked correctly. Not fair to have to wait till 2020. You watch, they will make us wait. They certainly dont wait for their money when they want it!!!!!!!!!

    1. Absolutely agree!
      We’re in the EXACT same situation- and we have no idea why except that this C-rated-reality-IRS-sh!t-show is being run by naked mole rats in suits… all scrambling to bring the fat orangey-pink queen the most fattening & rich diet.
      We have 2 disabled sons as well, but have seen nothing in the way of help- financial or otherwise.
      I’m definitely not holding my breath- I need to save it for the day I get Covid-19: soon the entire U.S. will have it and then the IRS will have less checks to have to send out.
      I truly do hope you get a response & those checks soon. Good luck!

  40. Well good to know I’m not the only one that did not receive the 500.00 for their dependent child. I used the non-filers tool on the IRS website well before the 22nd, I believe it was the 10th, anyway if we ate non-filers it’s obvious we definitely need the money and think it’s totally ridiculously that I would have to wait until 2020 tax season when I did everything correct and IRS can’t seem to get it right no matter the info we put in. Another thing my son receives money off my SSDI so why we even need to put any info in is beyond me when he gets a separate 1099 every year from SS so that must have this info on file as well if they have mine. I know some individuals were overpaid and they can’t seem to get the ones who need it most right, unreal!!

    1. Oh boy! Cindy! You dont know how I’ve written to Fox and to other outlets about the IRS knowing our dependents info through the SSA1099! You are SO right. Those who have children with a 1099 each yr shouldn’t have even had to use the tax portal! They have the info on our kids already complete with Social security number, DOB, all of it! Just an extra step we had to take that got messed up anyway!!!

    2. We also used non-filer. We received 2400 for my husband and myself but nothing for our 2 children. Every thing was done properly. Now there seems to be no way we can contact the IRS. This is awful.

  41. I am a full time foster parent with no taxable income for 2018 or 2019. I used the non filer tool to file. I received a $1200 direct deposit with the information provided on that form but I did not receive the $500 apiece payment for my 2 children. I did not claim my Forster children in the form. Just my 2 children. I’m very frustrated and really need that money right now.

  42. We didn’t get the money for our children because all resources were assigned to work on getting his signature on the bottom of the letter.

  43. I am on ssdi i received the 1200 but not the 500 and i see im not the only one has any one received any information on this i did the non filers and i received a acceptance e mail but nothing

  44. I’m on ssi n I did nonfile form online weeks ago so I could get extra $500. Just got my $1200 29th but did not get 500$ for my daughter:( hope there is a way to get it. I really need it

  45. I am on SSDI . I followed the guidelines and filled out the “non-filers” form to claim our three children. We did it on April 10th way before the April 22 deadline which was extended til May 5th I received the $1200 on April 29th but not the $500 for my 1 child . No explanation, no guidelines on what to do my child can’t be claimed by anyone else as i have full custody so I have no idea whats going on or what happened what do i need to do or find out what happened??????

  46. I only received 616.00 instead of 1200 and didn’t get 500 for each of my children. This is very frustrating and not being able to get a reasonable explanation is very frustrating. I am divorced but I have full custody of my children. Can somebody please explain this to me!!!!!

  47. I don’t know if this is helpful but the wording on the irs website is tricky regarding some people who filed using the irs tool for claiming dependents. It claims you have until the 5th of may to include qualifying children on the portal tool. So if you received the 1200 or 2400 per couple already maybe they are having an issue because they extended the deadline so the payment per child comes separately after may 5th. It doesn’t specify that the payments will come separately but it sort of implies it could. This is ridiculous that so many people are without their childrens payments!! And no one to actually answer these questions.

  48. I did my free filers form with both my kids on there so they have the correct information i did this on april 12 it was accepted by the irs. I collect ssi & i recieved my stimulus but not the 500 per child. How do i correct this issue?? I dont understand how they messed it up because they originally told me the money would go in the account i gave them on the free filers form and then it switched to my ssi information and went to the other account. So therefore i know they know about my dependants. So frustrating.

  49. I’m disabled and get SSI, I have 2 children and did everything I was told on the non-filers form way before any deadlines. I got an email from IRS stating congratulations the IRS has accepted your return, no further action is necessary.
    Today around 1 am Thursday I received my stimulus $1,200 but not the $500 for each child who are 14 & 12…
    Hoping I can reach out to someone who can help all of us out and hopefully soon we can get that additional payment that we’re entitled to… I will reach out again If I get any info or if I get the $500 for each child at a later date.

  50. Hello, my name is Michelle, westcoastmeshfighter & I recieved my $1200 stimulus check, however I didn’t receive $500 child credit. (16yrs old). I filled out the non filer form before the deadline of April 22nd, and it was accepted by the IRS. No one else can claim my child, not sure what is happening. They could at least make a press statement letting us all know what they are doing to fix it. At least that is what they should be doing instead of hiding. It seem like everything is falling apart slowly, painfully. If anyone has an answer that is not scripted For Example: They have to be under the age of 17, They can’t be claimed by anyone else, must do the filer form by April 22nd, it’s really simple, or so I thought. Please give a realistic answer, If we did everything like they advised, we shouldn’t have to wait a whole year to file another form, I am on SSDI, we normally don’t file a return. I hope they fix this and get the funds to the families who desperately need it. Thank You, please keep us updated, this is so sad, just sad,

    1. Meanwhile.. deceased and a non US citizens are getting checks. On Washington post an article was released that a rich British female that lives in London received 1200 dollars to her US bank account. I am curious how many more like this.. Surely they cant deny their own, while even non us citizens are receiving payments, right?

  51. In your last example you clearly mention the couple doesn’t file taxes but then say they will have to wait until they file taxes. Sounds like what the government would say. It makes no sense THEY DON’T FILE TAXES. But I guess those of us disabled don’t need our stipend for our children. I also did exactly what they said as a non-filer and did not receive AFTER I included her SSN.

  52. Ive not recieved the stimulus payment for my children as well. It was money i was banking on even though i used the non filers as well entered everything i was suppose to only got the 2400 and that was all. They need to fix the issue im fully disabled and was depending on that money.

  53. Me and my wife did the non filers form. I’m on ssd. I have 4 boys under 19. I got stimulus check but not the 500 for my boys. I’ve been looking everywhere for answers, but can’t find any. They say not call it’s but we might have to.

  54. I received the stimulus direct deposit today (4/30/2020), but I did not receive the additional $500 for my daughter who is 13yrs old. I am on disability and not required to file taxes. The last time I filed taxes I believe it was in 2012. I did do that non-filers thing since I am not required to file taxes. I did that before the 22nd. It was actually on the 13th is when I did that non-filers thing. I did enter my daughters SSN and other requirements. I am a single mom who has sole custody of my daughter. Could someone please help me as to why I did not receive the $500? Will it come later? HELP?!!!

  55. This is so frustrating!! Like I am literally homeless living with my sister in her 2bedtoom little house with her 3kids and myself and my 7yr old son for which has been with my 24/7 since birth his dad has not paid a dime in child support and Is a wanted felon so he didnt even sign up for the money so no one claimed my son I did the non-filers tool and got a email to enter new bank info and so I signed up for a Chime card and reentered my new bank info the same day and got a email saying received but not accepted never got an email saying accepted either but did receive my $1200 monday night but no $500 for my son!? So I hope to god that they are planning on doing it sometime in the near future and hoping that it’s just a individual deposit thing like ok they verified me so now they are going to do the same for our dependents and then we will get theirs ! If not then idk but its ridiculous I did it all right and still just like the rest of you! So please post I’f you are reading this and you have the same thing happening and they have fixed it for you.

  56. Same here. I didnt get the $500 for my daughter and i know all of my friends got theirs. This is ridiculous! We we’re told 500 per child and that’s what it should be! They need to fix this because people out of jobs like myself need this!!!!!!!!

  57. I myself used the non-filers website. I am on ssd claimed 3 of my children. In an e-mail it said they had accepted my return. Today I got my $1200 on my direct express card. I put bank account info in for the children on the non-filers. Well there is nothing there for the children. How long will we have to wait if we even get it.

  58. Me and my wife have 6 kids under 12 that no one else claims and we got nothing for any of them! This needs to be fixed ASAP

  59. Got letter 2 weeks after stimulus deposited. No explanation no reason why we never received five hundred dollars for our son. What is next step we can take. There is noone to speak to.

  60. Me and my husband did everything correct, always filed taxes. We make under the amount given. We got 2400$ stimulus payment. No 500$ for our son. We have always claimed him. I got letter in the mail about 2 weeks after 2400$ deposited into our account, it gave no explanation, no reason why we didn’t get 500$. Pretty frustrating when we have done everything correct. I mean I’m so grateful but when your expecting that money promised and then it just isn’t there is a bummer.

  61. I am an SSDI recipient with two dependents and received my stimulus via direct deposit today. It did not include the extra $1000 for my dependents. I filled out the non-filers form and received the confirmation message that my return had been accepted and there was nothing else I needed to do. This was all done well before the deadline so I was confident that the payment would be correct. I am so disheartened that I did everything I was required to do in a timely manner and now it appears as though I will have to wait until next year to receive the payment for my two children when it is so desperately needed now.
    I am sorry to see that so may others are having the same problem I am but, at the same time, it’s a relief to know it’s not just an isolated incident.
    I do appreciate the fact that these payments are being distributed and I believe that, given present circumstances, it is being done as efficiently and accurately as possible. With that being said, errors can occur especially during such an unprecedented time in our history and the IRS just does not have the manpower to handle the amount of phone calls that would be pouring in right now. However, we should not have to, nor should we be expected to, wait until next year when we took all of the necessary steps in a timely manner. Where is our recourse? Hopefully we will all see some resolution to this soon.

  62. I am a single mother of 4 who is all under 17 I filed my taxes 2019 head of house hold and all of my children I filed for I received my 1200 for myself but not the 500 each for my children I am hoping eventually I can get it fixed and some help I been trying online and over the phone I didn’t get no help

  63. I’m a single mother who gets Social Security. Today I received my stimulus check deposited to my account for $1,200 but I did not get the $500 for my son even though I filled out the non-filers form on the 17th before the 22nd in which you had to have completed it to get the $500 for a dependent yet I still got nothing for him. I was really disappointed because I was expecting to get the full $1,700 not just the $1,200. Will they be sending the $500 payment at a later date? Any updates would be greatly appreciated.

  64. Same here my daughter is autistic and I entered all the information but did not receive the money for either child

  65. I filed through the non filers portal at irs website on April 11th. claimed my 11yr old. and entered my regular bank acct at wells fargo. We both receive Ssa survivors benefits. On April 24 my payment status finally said i was eligible and payment would go to my wells fargo acct that i entered. On April26th my status said payment scheduled for April29th. but had a different acct. number. turns out they switched ours to go to my direct express card where we receive our benefits. April 29th i received my $1200 payment but did not receive $500 for my child..!
    dont know how to get this fixed..
    this defeated the whole purpose of having to file through non filers. no one else should be claiming my child either as his father is passed away… hence the survivors benefits.

  66. I am a single mother, with one child (9 years old). I filled out the non-filers form with all the correct information, but only received $1,200, instead of the much needed $1,700. No one else can claim her, and waiting for the $500 on NEXT YEAR’S TAXES is ridiculous. We obviously like so many others, need that money NOW. Hopefully we’ll get some better answers soon.

  67. My son is on SSI because he’s disabled and I cannot work for that reason. I used the nonfilers form and entered him as a dependent.. I received the $1200, But not the additional $500 I was supposed to get .. so frustrating that no one can be contacted because it seems like it’s happening to most of us that used the nonfilers form or are on disability..

  68. Received 1200 but not the 500. DID the non filers info. Wondering what’s up. I am unable to work due to son being special needs he receives ssi I have not filed taxes for the 2018 2019 years. Wondering if they are doing the kids separate under there socials ?

  69. I`m a single parent receiving SSDI. I did the nonfilers with social security numbers for my dependent child. I did not receive the $500 dollars either with my $1200 payment.

  70. Start writing your congressmen, flood their inboxes and maybe they’ll acknowledge the problem. That’s what I plan on doing, goodluck everyone.

    1. Ita me and my two girls under eight years was expecting $2200 today and got 1200 very pissed because that money was going to a security deposit since our lease ends may 31. I am on tanf government assistance I use them as last resort for housing help. I read you have to file next yr 2020 to get the children stimulus money back which makes zero sense for ppl who won’t file. I’m not seeing the $1000 form!y kids

  71. I get SSDI, used the IRS’s non-filer tool before the April 22 deadline to put in the information for my 2 sons age 11 and 9 and I still did not receive the stimulus for either of them. Am I going to have to file taxes next year to finally get it or am I just out of luck and not going to get anything?

  72. We are a SSDI and VA disability family. We followed the guidelines and filled out the “non-filers” form to claim our three children. We did it on April 13, well before the April 22 deadline. We received the $2400 for my husband and I, but not the $500 for our three children. No explanation, no guidelines on what to do now. Husband and I are married… our kids can’t be claimed by anyone else… so I have no idea why this occured.

  73. I received my check today, but didn’t get the additional money for my two children. I haven’t found anything online that could help me address this. I used the non-filer tool like I was told. Everyone keeps saying that we have to wait to get the letter from the IRS and call the number. That number is automated and of no use to anyone. Most of us can’t wait until 2021 to get the money.

  74. This past year was the first year I had worked in 10 years. I filled my taxes early was looking forward to the refund since I’m very low income. Today is April 30 and still no refund and I check on IRS site and says that I must of entered the wrong information which I’m not. Because I knew that if I hadn’t received my refund then I also need to do the no. Fillers information for the stimulus payment I did it no problem. And only received 1200 and still no tax refund what is going on!!! Anybody going through the same thing and do you know why my tax return did not have any mistakes and nobody claimed my son, HELP

  75. My wife and I got the 1200 each payment but not the 500 for our son. Has anyone received theirs at a later time or found out how to go about getting it?

    1. The letter is just a statement from the White House. It has zero helpful information. We also got our stimulus money, but are missing the dependent payment for our child.

  76. I had a similar experience. I did a simple tax return through turbotax and received my stimulus but nothing for my 10 year old. Is there anything we can do?

  77. I am in the same situation not receiving the 500 for my son looking at at the comments it seems we all filed under non filers. So they definitely need to look into why all these non filers are not receiving the full payment that we are supposed to be getting…so frustrating

  78. I’ve read all of the comments and i’m in the same boat … I’m on SSDI and we both rec’d a SSA-1099 at the beginning of the year I’m also his respresentative Payee and my 14yr is on part of mine SSI and I did everything with the Non-Filers and added him … but when I went into a part of the IRS I was given a code and it said someone else filed for dependent child … he has no contact with his father … I’ve had him since the day he was born … I just rec’d mine $1200 on weds BUT still nothing for my son … he’s father can ONLY claim child support when he does his taxes AND nothing else … so i’m getting more frustrated as the days go on … plus my mom who’s on SSI (SSA-1099) still hasn’t rec’d hers either and i’m her Representative Payee cause she’s in a nursing home …. I hope the IRS fixes these issues soon … or at find a way to tell people why or where their kids/parents $$$ is … Good luck everyone and con’t to be safe !!

  79. I received my $1200 stimulus payment but not my daughter’s $500? I’m a single father on Social Security Disability, my daughter is 8 and with special needs. She was born with a mild form of Cerebral Palsy. Everything I submitted was correct;(SS numbers, account information, Address etc.) We both get 1099’s and there is 2 accounts with direct deposit. I had no option to enter 2 different account numbers. Can anyone help explain why her $500 didn’t get paid? PLEASE ?

  80. I received $1200 for myself but not $500 for my two children 5yr old and 2 yr old. There must be some kind of glitch in the system. Hopefully they act quickly and send out the remaining portion. I was really counting on that money..I don’t understand, I did everything correct and meet all requirements. This is a huge error on their behalf

  81. Single father w two qualifying children. Rec’d my stimulus but not money for my kids. I’m not surprised things are messed up, I’m very surprised I got anything. Hopefully we’ll all get what was promised.

  82. I am currently in the same situation. It looks like they screwed EVERYONE who is a non-filer and did not give the 500 per child. NONE of my friends in my moms group got it. I’m a single mom of two children with disabilities. My moms group is about 30 women. No one got the 500 for their kids. Only the 1200 was received.

  83. I receive ssdi, survivors benefits. It’s obvious I receive these benefits for my minor son whose father passed away. I’m a single mother that does not currently have an income that requires me to file a tax return. I filed well in advance in the non-filers sections though the IRS.GOV site, including all pertinent info for my minor dependant son. Currently unable to work due to COVID-19 and relying on both the $1,200 and $500 stimulus payment. Received the $1,200 direct deposit today, but not the $500. Frustrated, I did everything exactly as instructed. Some of us REALLY need this. Any info on how to get this corrected would be a godsend!

  84. Same here my husband an I got ours the 29th. Used the no filers tool April 13 and was accepted but no $500 for our 3 boys. 10,11 &15. My husband is awaiting a lung transplant and Im his caretaker. Were so far behind. :(.

  85. Same thing for me, I used the non filer’s tool on the IRS website, it was accepted that day by the IRS. I waited weeks, checking periodically, for my info to be entered into the get my payment tool, before it showed the day it was to be deposited, but conveniently not the amount to be deposited… so they obviously got the correct info, but they only deposited the $1200 for myself, but none of my kids’ got credited. For low income citizens, this money is the most critical as we have exhausted our resources and are finding it especially hard to provide basic things like food and hygiene products. It’s just sad that the most vulnerable are so overlooked and mistreated.

  86. I am on social security disability and I receive a small payment for each of my children every month.My check goes into one account and my children’s go into a different account via direct deposit. I have not filed income taxes in years due to a lien put against me for my x husband business and I need an attorney to fight this but can not afford one.My income last year was not enough to require me to file but I do plan on filing and believe I will receive the earned income credit.In my divorce we were ordered to each file the children opposite years so my x filed for them in 2017 and 2018 and now I am supposed to file for them for 2019 and 2020.The children are living with me and I filed through the non filers and received only my payment although the account I put on file through the non filers section is not the account I received my payment in.Am I just screwed because my x was the last one to claim them on their taxes.This is not fair and there are way too many split families who file their taxes in this way as ordered by the court.Do I have any recourse?I am in desperate need of this money. I have a private mortgage so I am not protected or able to put any of my payments to the back of my loan.I have to pay or he will revoke my mortgage and due to the lovely tax lien of 1.2 million dollars that the irs placed against me for a business I was not part of nor do I have any records to file taxes for that business,I can not get a regular mortgage. Now I have to choose to pay my mortgage, pay my Bill’s or feed my children.I am totally screwed and being disabled I have very little income so I cant here an attorney to help me.I really hope every family in this or similar situation speaks out so that this problem is rectified.

  87. I get survivor benefits, 3 of my kids get survivor benefits, and my 4th child is on SSI for his immunodefociency. They are all under 17. We definitely meet the income requirements. I am a non filer, and submitted our information on the non filers tool 2 days after it was released, so way before the deadline. It said it was accepted. I made sure the information was all correct. All I received was $1200 for myself yesterday. Hoping they get this cleared up. Looks like everyone that used the non filers tool is having this issue. Has anyone heard of someone that the non filers tool worked for? (As far as adding their children?)

  88. My sister and myself are in the same boat. We both got our 1200 payment for ourselves but nothing for our 3 children. Her and I both have 3 kids. We both file our own children every year and they are all under 17. We dont understand why we didnt get the payment for our children but yet our other sister did. Wth is really going on.

  89. Same here, I have some custody of my daughter who is 15. Filed thru the intuit portal through TurboTax, my husband and I got ours today, but I got nothing for my child.. not been getting regular child support since August 2019… this is frustrating…

  90. Same here, I have some custody of my daughter who is 15. Filed thru the intuit portal through TurboTax, my husband and I got ours today, but I got nothing for my child.. not been getting regular child support since August 2019… this is frustrating…

  91. I am in almost the same situation, if not exact same, as most of you. I am not required to file taxes and I have two children (one receives SSI, minor) neither children have been claimed by anyone else. I used the IRS non-filers site, followed directions, no errors on submission and it was accepted promptly. I did receive my $1200 deposited to the bank account provided on the non-filers form. (therefore I know they used that info) I did not receive the $1000 for my children, nor have I received the explanation letter from the IRS. Has anyone received their explanation letter?? I won’t be filing again next year so I can’t claim the missing next year on taxes like I have seen suggested on the IRS website.

  92. I didn’t get mine either. I thought perhaps her father claimed her but he did not. I am a single mother as well and he knows I am struggling which is why he didn’t claim her. I need this money and it looks like I am not the only one who did not receive their $500 per child. This is a very dire situation we are in and $500 may seem like a little amount to some but it is a lot to me and every little bit helps. They need to address this publicly because after reading all of these comments it looks like it has happened to a lot of families. How are we supposed to get the money when everything is closed and we have no way of reaching anyone to help!!! This is the sickest and most cruel thing to do to someone. The government is corrupt and are only lining their own pockets to benefit themselves. They don’t give two f$cks about us.

  93. I receive SSI and have 2 dependent children (all 16 and under). I received the $1200 for myself but not the additional $500 per child. I entered all of their info into the non filers tool on April 13th and got the email from the IRS saying they accepted the return. I don’t get it. Where’s the money?

  94. I had recently received my stimulus check via my child support card because that’s the only banking card that I own. I also thought that maybe I would get it on my Emerald Card but I did not receive anything on that one. But, like others, I have two young dependents and have not re6the $500 each for them. I had filed my 2018 taxes and have done a non-filers form which is where I received the $1,200. I filled out both of my children’s information correctly. I hope that there’s a fix to this soon. I wonder how many other people are going through this.

  95. I am a survivor benefit recipient. I received my $1200 payment, but I did not receive $500 for my 14 year old son. I filled out the non filers form 2-3 weeks ago, which was accepted in the total amount of $1700. My sin can’t be claimed as a dependent by anyone else. My husband, his father, was killed in a car accident in 2005. Hence, the survivor benefits we receive. I dod everything right, and did everything a lot earlier than most. I frequently checked in daily with the s.s. and irs websites to be sure that there weren’t anymore requirements added, or changed from the time I submitted the non filers form, until this morning. The irs likes to change things up quite often, these days. I figured it was better to be safe than sorry. That apparently doesn’t make a difference. I’m kind of fuming right now.

  96. I haven’t filed tax returns for years 2018 or 2019 but there was a tool for me to put my information on the irs web portal it was the non-filler information portal and I put the information in for me and my two kids my love and your old daughter and my five-year-old son I also put their Social Security numbers in which I also put my direct deposit information and I do believe that I put the information in April 10 which is five days before another tool came out which is get my money payment tool on the web portal I did everything that I was supposed to do nothing came back rejected or say that my kids information was being used before I can’t use it I was the only one that use my children on my tax returns unless I let my son Father claim him in 2016 but that has nothing to do with this stimulants check I am not understanding why I did not receive my keys credit I did everything that I was supposed to do my information was excepted I did everything right so I’m trying to understand what the problem I know people that received All their simulates deposit for their household I’m like the only one that I know so far and Baltimore That hasn’t received her entire stimulus check refund only receive my $1200 for myself but the extra $1000 I’m not understanding why I didn’t get it I don’t understand it’s not fair it’s not right that majority of the people around the world got all their money but the rest of us we just left hanging we need help with our children this is not fair that we’re not being recognized in the state of unorganized help that we’re supposed to be getting someone should be aware of this in the IRS and it’s very unprofessional unorganized no one‘s on the same page no one‘s even acknowledging the fact that people are out here saying that they did not get all of their Stimulus funding in their deposit or check mailing however the form it comes it’s not right and it’s not fair that’s going to cause more commotion more pandemonium someone needs to reach out to us because I’m pretty sure that you know that we didn’t receive all of our money so I don’t know why no one is Acknowledging this in IRS but this issue definitely needs to be handled this is not right.We as people that are in the pandemic shouldn’t I have to wait for 2020 to receive a credit that we don’t even know that we’re going to get because we don’t even know how this world is going to be operating in the next month for the next month becoming after the mouth how are you gonna say will be able to get it next year for 2020 we don’t even know if we’re gonna be able to have a fu***** job you make no sense send us our fu*****money fools. Is this what you really call help this is ridiculous the one thing that you could get right you fu***** can’t get right it’s all fu**** up. PS signed angry single mom. Government had one job can’t even do that right

  97. Hi I’m the same !I receive Social Security survivor benefits and I got my 1200 on Wednesday, April 29 . But I did not receive the dependentS $500. I did the non filers portal on the IRS website round April 13 I put my children’s info. I’m still missing the $1000 for my 9 year old and my 11 year old . Why???

  98. I also receive ssi survivors for me and my 13 year old daughter and didn’t receive the 500 for dependent as I have done everything they’ve asked. I’m frustrated. I really needed to catch up on bills that went behind do to this pandemic.

  99. I also only received $1200. My son is on SSI, my daughter isn’t and I received $0 for the child credit. Also filed via TurboTax, no one else can claim them and all information was correct. I was counting on that money…just like all of you. I hope they figure out this problem soon.

    1. My child too is on ssi and certainly did not receive jack squat for my 2 children I was approved for . Love how certain ones get theirs and the rest of us out here are just left to hang . Don’t sit here say we’re gonna get this including this , and light talk of $2000 stimulus next round when you haven’t paid ANYONE all the way correct. This is just messed up! I want my children’s $$ ! We all do!!!! And the rest of us forced to wait til next year ?! And then to be told No most likely ! Lovely set up! SUCH a cop out /lazy of. Not doing your job and actually handling the issue period!!! gIVE US OUR REMAINING $ Like EVERYONE ELSE
