IRS Second Stimulus Get My Payment Status (GMP) Tool For Direct Deposit and Update Portal for Non-Filers – Updates and Latest News


This article was last updated on January 11

[Update with Second Stimulus Check Payment Status] The IRS has started paying the recently approved $600/$1200 stimulus check (recovery rebate) for adults and their child dependents. As expected there are many who are seeing issues, especially non-filers. Their main IRS stimulus payment status tool, Get My Payment (GMP) for checking stimulus payments has now been updated (as of January 5th), but has been hard to to get real time updates and many are especially those expecting dependent checks are seeing ongoing delays with their payment. Note however that the official IRS is still processing stimulus payments and could come separately for adults and dependents.

Given the volume of people checking and expecting payments, their have also been several performance issues with the tool as well. The “please wait” message is what some may be seeing due to this and is a normal part of the site’s operation according to the IRS. Also to prevent bots and people constantly checking for updates (the system is not real time) a limit to the number of times people can access GMP daily. When people reach the maximum number of accesses, Get My Payment will inform them they will need to check back the following day.

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.

IRS Non-Filer Tool Closed for Updates

While the IRS is using 2019 tax returns for payment of the second stimulus check (or economic impact payment 2)., payments are also automatic for those who don’t file a tax return and who successfully registered for the first payment online agency’s Non-Filers tool by November 21, 2020 or who had submitted a simplified 2019 tax return that has been processed by the IRS. This includes Social Security retirement and disability beneficiaries, railroad retirees and those getting veterans’ benefits.

While the IRS had setup a non-filers tool for the first stimulus payment, this time around they are not doing that and will use information from the first stimulus check payments or work directly with the relevant federal agencies to obtain the information needed to send out the new payments. The IRS has confirmed that the non-filer tool is closed for updates and encouraging you to claim the missing stimulus (known as a recovery rebate credit in tax terms) by filing a 2020 1040 or 1040-SR tax return. Free tax software programs can be used by people who are not normally required to file tax returns but are eligible to claim the credit.

For those who don’t receive a direct deposit by early January, they should watch their mail for either a paper check or a debit card. Otherwise, people who didn’t receive a payment for any reason can file a 2020 tax return.

[Update August 2020] The IRS has announced it will reopen the registration period – starting Aug. 15 through Sept. 30 – for eligible non-filing federal beneficiaries (e.g. SSDI, Retirees and SSI recipients) who eligible for the $500 per child payments. Those who file (via the IRS Non-filer tool) and are deemed eligible should start seeing their payments by Mid-October.

For those Social Security, SSI, Department of Veterans Affairs and Railroad Retirement Board beneficiaries who have already used the Non-Filers tool to provide information on children, no further action is needed. The IRS will automatically make a payment in October.

The IRS has finally gotten its Stimulus Check Status Tool (Get My Payment) up and running. This is in addition to the other tool that was setup a few days earlier – Enter Payment Info – for those who are not required to file U.S. income taxes, but want to update their direct deposit information in order to get their stimulus checks. You can see who is eligible for the 2020 stimulus check payments here. Most tax payers will receive their stimulus check or Economic Stimulus Payment as the IRS calls it automatically based on on their 2019 (2018 if that is the last filed one) tax return. However to check status and/or update payment details you will need to use one of these tools. Provided below is a summary of the tools and what you need to use these.

Note – As of April 22nd the IRS is about half way through processing stimulus check payments (~65 million recipients). They have announced additional rounds of payments via direct deposit and paper checks each week. The first round went to people the IRS already had direct deposit information on file for, from their 2018 or 2019 tax returns. The next round will be sent to those who recently provided the IRS with their direct deposit information. Subsequent rounds will go to late filers, retiree, veteran and SSI groups and then to people who had complications or required further reviews of their eligibility.

Get My Payment (GMP) – Stimulus Check Status Checker

This tool which was recently stood up and has some bugs as expected is processing queries very slowly as millions are anxiously checking their stimulus payment status (some multiple times a day). In fact the IRS has acknowledged issues whereby the GMP tool is giving many an incorrect message that their payment status is not available. But this is just the default error message due to system unavailability and not because the persons data is not there or payment hasn’t been sent. This is being fixed and the IRS has said to be patient and check back later.

[GMP updates] The IRS has recently provided the following updates to this tool to help track the status of your stimulus check and address the many issues current and potential recipients were facing

Scheduled delivery date by direct deposit or mail now available and will also include last four digits of the bank account being used if the IRS has direct deposit information. You wi need to provide your SSN, DOB and mailing address used on your latest tax return

Taxpayers needing to add their bank account information to speed receipt of their payment will also need to provide the following additional information: Adjusted Gross Income and Refund or amount owed from their latest filed tax return, Bank account type, account and routing numbers

Reminder – Get My Payment cannot update bank account information after an Economic Impact Payment has been scheduled for delivery. To help protect against potential fraud, the tool also does not allow people to change bank account information already on file with the IRS.

You will need to validate your identity and address when you log into the portal so have your 2018 or 2019 tax return (latest filed) handy.

Get My Payment - Stimulus Check Status Checker

Get My Payment (IRS Stimulus Check Status Checker)

Payment Status Not Available Error

You may see the “status not available error” for the following reasons per the IRS:

IRS Get My Payment Errors
  • If you are not eligible for a payment per stimulus check rules.
  • If you are required to file a tax return and have not filed in tax year 2018 or 2019.
  • If you recently filed your return or provided information through Non-Filers: Enter Your Payment Info (see following section). Your payment status in this case will be updated when processing is completed.
  • If you are a SSA or RRB Form 1099 recipient, SSI or VA benefit recipient. Your status is not available because the IRS is working with the SSA and VA to issue your payment.
  • Your refund is being processed and no additional updates are available. The Get My Payment data is updated once per day, so there’s no need to check back more frequently.

Payment Information Portal (update Direct Deposit Information)

This is applicable to those lower income US citizens or permanent residents (and some longer term visa holders with a SSN) that do not file a tax return and had income that did not exceed $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples) for 2019. Your income for this year is not what should be used. Those who filed a 2019 or 2018 tax return which would have included payment details (for refund or taxes due) should NOT use this portal. Further Social Security and disability recipients shouldn’t use this portal as IRS will automatically sent them payments based on SSA data.

Have the following information ready to use the Payment Information Portal

The IRS will use this information to determine eligibility and payment amount and send you your stimulus check (economic impact payment. After providing this information you won’t need to take any additional action.

  • Full name, current mailing address and email address
  • Date of birth and valid Social Security number (SSN)
  • Bank account number, type and routing number, if you have one
  • Driver’s license or state-issued ID, if you have one
  • For each qualifying child: name, Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number and their relationship to you or your spouse

Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here (IRS Website)

Note – The links to the tools above will take you to the IRS portal (you can validate via, but please avoid many scams trying to get this personal information from you. You should only be providing this via the official IRS portal.

How long are the Stimulus Check Payments available?

Stimulus check economic impact payments will be available throughout the rest of 2020, so you have time to update your Direct Deposit details until then.

Can I Call the IRS to get more information?

The IRS have clearly stated on their website that people should NOT call about this payment since they are over 100 million people eligible to get this payment so processing times are long and with millions of tax refunds to process the IRS is not taking calls on this payment. I can say from personal experience and from the many comments I have received that calling the IRS stage at this point on this topic is pointless. But I can try and answer your questions based on the information I have. Just leave a comment and subscribe to get the latest update.

  1. I used non filers in 2020. Like most i received my dependant check 6 months late separate. Stimulus #2 Same issue recieved my $ 600 but not my childrens. Get my payment gave me payment #2 deposit jan. 4. Now it says payment #2 “not available” showing payment #1 in Aug. When i received my dependant check. So i had a date , wrong amount. :( now status unavailable. Anyone else with this?

  2. These comments are ridiculous. No one on here is going to help any of you, Stop telling your life stories and giving out personal info

    1. none of this matters, the rats at the irs do not care and as usual the government will use the “unclaimed” money for its own purposes, again, screw the taxpayer.

  3. I am non-filer and I went to check the status of my payment to which it asked for my direct deposit. The problem is it also asked for my 2018/2019 tax return information which I don’t have. I have tried putting 0 for AGI and for how much I owe. But it is telling me it was incorrect. Should I call the IRS to give them my banking info or should I try using 1 instead of zero.

    1. That happened to me and I called and they said try 0 if it doesn’t work then you caint put banking information for some people it doesn’t give them the option but my check came really fast I had it within 3 weeks after filling

    2. Yes, put 1 instead of 0. This happened to me and it ended up locking me out for a day before I could try again.

  4. I used the non filer tool for the first stimulus check….my banking information has since changed…how would I update it before they start sending out the 2nd stimulus check?
    Thank u allie

  5. I attempted to enter my bank information after filing a 2019 return with a free online tax service I chose listed on the IRS website for the first stimulus check. But since I neither owed or was due a refund, there was no option to enter my bank information on this particular filing website which I think was FreeTax USA? Don’t have the information right at the moment, so I then went to the IRS GET MY PAYMENT TOOL to enter it but it was processing and wouldn’t allow me to enter direct deposit information either and I ultimately received a paper check. I will be moving and don’t have a forwarding address as of yet and was wondering because I’ve not been able to find an answer to my following question…. If the government passes a second stimulus package will IRS allow people who received a paper check the round to enter their bank account for direct deposit for the second payment or can I get a post office box and have my mail forwarded to it without creating any issues for myself which will allow me to get the payment without delay???

    Thank you for your help

  6. My daughter is active duty in the army she filed her taxes received them on debt card through TurboTax. She also qualifies for the Care Act stimulus payment it is now September 30th 2020 and she is not yet received a payment for herself. She uses my address because she is station out of the state and there is no mail of notification of her receiving a check or not receiving one and when you go on get my payment IRS website it says no information at this time. Someone help clear this or direct us in the right place she just had a newborn baby and really needs her payment thank you.

  7. i was wondering how long does it take after e-filing non-filer if it says irs has accepted this return and will process this return and determine eligibility for the Economic Impact Payment?

    1. Yes pls would like to know how long it takes
      I filed non filers July 14
      Got notification it was accepted

  8. I am a single mother with a 15 year old son. I filed my taxes Jan.27th electronically, still says been received and processing. Also have not received any of the stimulus money not for me or my child. We are now homeless because I cant find work. Living in a car while my ex got his stimulus when he didnt even file taxes and my cousin got his he ia a drug addict that lives in his car. How is it that a system can give someone that dint even try 1200.00 but a single mom struggling living in her car with her son cant get any assistance

  9. I have been trying to research since before the first stimulus checks were issued and can’t find ANY info to help my apparently unique situation.
    The issue I am having is related to the child stimulus. My ex and I have a 50/50 custody agreement with alternating who claims the child each year. I claimed her for 2018, he claimed her for 2019. But financial responsibility is on both of us throughout the year. When the first stimulus came out he got the $500, and never offered half to help me. Needless to say we are not on the best of terms on a good day. When the second stimulus comes out it will again go to him, same scenario. He gets it, he keeps it. Since I can’t find any info on my particular situation I am starting to think my only recourse is to go back to court over it. But the amount I would receive wouldn’t be worth the cost of the lawyer, not to mention courtrooms are pretty much closed down. Is there any directive in place for this kind of problem or any idea of who I can actually get into contact with on how to resolve this before the next round of stimulus checks? Please respond asap as I am desperately in need of this check given the current state of our country right now.

    1. I am with you on that issue my ex claimed me n my children and he barely even meet my son this last year he is 11 and I raised him alone since then and even helped them out financially till they got all this money if me nm my kids. I didn’t see a penny of it not even to get my kids there school stuff off to get us a house when we got evicted or when it utilities got shut off mean while him n his kids got new phones tables speakers game systems appliances n my son got a bag of Sox n my daughter got nothing now there gonna get more money he dosent deserve while we struggle just to get internet for school we sit n a parking lot in the heat of the day cuz they put service on my phone for a month then turned it off with no notice and gave my number to there 8 yr old daughter who keeps calling my friends n hanging up. I don’t think that’s fair at all and I don’t know who to talk to about it …he only only became dad a year compaired to the 11 I took care of our son alone

      1. I would call the IRS and report him for fraud and possibly see what the police department says. I’d also take him to court for child support and if you have already done so I would ask for a review, and let the judge know what he did.

  10. So I’ve been approved for the stimulus but when trying to do the AGI part it keeps saying its not right? I’d hate to have to just get it sent by mail and have to wait yearsfor my check. So if anybody has answers or any ideas please help.

    1. You have to enter 1 instead of 0 on one of the questions in order to get it to go through. I had the same problem

  11. Your article says you cannot change banking info on get my payment after you received your stim. I randomly got on get my payment tonight and it allowed me to change my banking info. I was a non-filer and forgot to add my banking account information originally and got a paper check on May 1st but it allowed me to put my banking info and tonight

  12. IGet an email every morning from the USPS informed delivery with a picture of coming mail. on May 8 I have a picture of my EIP check with the correct address but no postmark. On May 11, I got another picture of that mail with a postmark in Sacramento,CA dated May 8,2020. This proves to me that my EIP check S in the Sacramento Post Office on those dates. I have never received the check.
    Now it seems to me that since it was in their possession on those dates, it should be the USPS responsibility to deliver that item to me at the address on the mail item. Today is July 29,2020 and I believe that the EIP has either been lost or stolen. Since my mail is inserted into a recepticle which comes into my house therefore being safe and secure I rightfully conclude that it has been lost by the USPS or stolen by some employee of USPS. When I visited The USPS that handles my mail in Chico,CA they informed me that “it wasn’t their problem”. They told me to call the IRS. I have followed up with the IRS filing a form 3911. As of this date I have heard nothing.
    A week ago I emailed Jim Neilsen’s office.
    Does anyone else have a suggestion? I have received two letters from Donald Trump telling me I have received my EIP.

  13. I don’t get this. The IRS has my account info and I am eligible to get the stimulus payment, my info has been up for several weeks now and still nothing. I haven’t gotten my payment and I have 3 girls to take care of. What is with our government ? They can track 1 person down with a satellite but cant run a damn web page !!!!!! I always thought our country was the greatest but now at times I really wonder. Cause of COVID I no longer have work I’m a self employed contractor and me and my family have nothing at this point. I hate telling my girls that they cant do this or that cause we have no money. And the governments answer is if you don’t have it now it will come later. Well what if there is no later for people in my position ????

    1. Right there with you!!! So frustrating!! I’ve had my taxes filed and refunded in April, and it’s now August and I haven’t received a single thing. I’ve checked my eligibility a million times but have no sort of guidance whatsoever! Hope things look up for both of is.

    2. Completely understand your frustration it is definitely warranted. GOD bless you…

  14. I did my sons taxes in January 2020. I mistakenly put he could be claimed by someone else! I couldn’t claim him on my taxes as he made too much! I sent in an amended tax to Fresno, CA but he never received his stimulus check and it says he’s not getting one because he was claimed by someone else! HE WASN’T! What do we do? I never heard back from the IRS after sending amended tax explaining the mistake and you cannot get a person by calling!

  15. My wife and I filed jointly as normal.

    We received the 2400 for myself and my wife.

    We did not see the 500 for our 16 year old daughter whom lives and is fed by us daily and has always been claimed by us.

    Can anyone point us in the right direction to try and get this 500.00?

    Thank you in advance for your time and help!


  16. Im 20 years old and my mother who usaly files me as a depdendent didnt do that this year when she filed this year when she filed on may 9 so i used the non filer on may 20 and i have not heard from them yet and when i check the get my payment app it says status unavilable im not sure what to expect or what to do next, can anyone enlighten me?

    1. Hello and thanks for this thorough post regarding the Stimulus. I do have a question, however.

      It is just me and my daughter. I filed for the Stimulus check as a non-filer. Today I noticed the 1,200 deposit but not the $500 for my daughter. This is vital to us because I am unemoyed. Do you happen to know why I wouldn’t receive her $500? I am very concerned.

      Thank you!

  17. I receive ssi and I have a 15 yr old child, I also used the non filers tool back in April so I would receive it for my child, I received my stimulus check on my Direct Express Card but I never received anything for my child, Do I need to call the IRS?

    1. Hi Amy! You are not alone! i have not recieved my childs either but got mine. It’s literally killing us! Thanks goverment! But anyways if you have found anything out or have since recieved yours plz could you let me know thanks.

  18. I got only a $2 debit card from Money Network for my wife and me. Any idea why that happened?

    1. I am in the same situation. Haven’t had to file taxes in over 5 years and did “all the steps” I needed and unfortunately did not receive the $500 for my daughter either. I have tried and tried to find information but to no avail.

  19. I didn’t file taxes last year and my kids dad did in 2018 and claimed kids the kids live with me he pays no child support and doesnt help financially i support them myself but they sent the stimulus check for the children to him even though u updated info on the irs web but because he claim them two years ago they went by that instead i struggle as it is raising my kids on my own and he’s the one who gets the stimulus. Check for them how is that right

  20. I I get disiblety for my two grandkids from there father and I filled the form on may 15 .and I have NOT HEARD ANY THING I HAVE BEEN GETTING THERE CHECK DEPOSITED IN MY ACCOUNT FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO .

  21. I to received my stimulus check im on disability and still haven’t received my child credit what do I and everyone here asking do ???

  22. I did everything that I was told to do, used non-filers to give info on my dependent, way before the cut off time. Yet I still only got $1,200. Not that I’m not grateful for this but I’m a single mother, get no child support, and am on ssi due to injury keeping me from being able to work. I can’t figure out how to find out what’s going on with that. I got the run around when I called the IRS and the web cite was no help what so ever! I’m so frustrated that there’s no help with this situation!!

    1. Well, i am sorry to hear that but you are not the only one with this same complain and there is nothing to be done about it, i am so sorry.

      1. I spoke with a IRS agent via the 800 number she was just as Clueless as the rest of us on the matter of the missing $500 she did read me something and in short her answer was for me to make my 8yr old his own nonfilers account and i should receive the money that way(my son is also on Ssi and gets his benefits on a card separate from mine so she told me to add his bank info and all) I myself know all the deadlines for the stimulus have gone she asked me I could still file though.When I went to the non files websites its now just for actual taxes,but that’s the odd result I got from a IRS agent.

    2. I read about you not getting your check for your child me also had got nothing for mine also .did you ever get for your child there stimulus check?i still not and I filed way before the dead line.

  29. I filed my 2019 1040 in Jan. 2020, I checked the Get my payment portal and it stated my check is scheduled to be mailed on April 24, 2020. On May 9, 2020, I received a letter stating I would be receiving a 1200.00 EIP check by mail. I use a PO Bx and I still have not received anything yet. Is there any number that I can call to find out where it is.

  30. Hallo, Andy! I received a stimulus payment notice 1444, (dated the 29th of April 2020) today, which indicates that my Impact Payment of $1,200.00 was sent via direct deposit to my bank. I do not recognize the 4-digit bank information that is provided in this notice. I do not have any active bank accounts. Furthermore, I receive monthly SSDI income direct deposited to a debit card via the Direct Express Company. I called them, and was told by a representative, that there is no indications that a direct deposit of the Impact Payment of $1,200.00 was attempted. So, essentially the direct deposit has gone awry; which is causing much frustration and anxiety. How do I receive the Stimulus payment via check etcetera?? Kindly advise. Thanks.

  31. I am on ssi and live with any of my family members, I did the non filer with efile but it still saying processing. When will it be through processing

  32. On where my refund it says additional information needed. I been waiting on notice letter since Feb. What do I need to do ?

  33. My name is Krystal Hatfield and it told me to update my direct deposit to get the stimulus and i did like April 16 or 17. It said it would b deposited on the card then said it was scheduled to b nailed out April 24 to my last known address which i dnt live at. Today I got a letter in the mail how much I am getting but still haven’t received my money for stimulus. Why is that???? All it says on the paper is receiving 2200 by check/debit card. Like I am confused ..i have been checking at my old address and the people living there now has been checking ..why would I get a letter but no Check when it says the letters are mailed out 15 days after the check was issued???

  34. My husband is on ss our daughter is 9 and gets ssa from him I get ssi he doesn’t have to file taxes but we filled like they said and still have not received anything can you tell us why? I keep getting the same message on the get my payment tool that says no information is available

  35. I am on SSI and SSdi benefits. I received my stimulus for $1200 but didn’t get my money for my 2 dependents. I filed on non file 4/19\20. I can check stats and it does tell me the date the deposited my check but nothing on the dependent money? Please help

    1. I also am on ssi and haven’t recieved anything for my 2 dependents, even though I filed mid April with the non filers tool…

  36. I filed through the non filers page three weeks ago and still haven’t received anything and my won’t ever update ..I didn’t work last year one can claim me on taxes mad my daughter lives with me …do you know how to find anything out ?

    1. Hey I’m on the same boat, have you gotten an update ,I didn’t work last year no one can claim me as a dependent . Filed June 30th on nonfilers ,got accepted next day.July 10 th portal said I was eligible but needed bank info. Asked for my agi which was 0 said it was incorrect locked me out for 24 hrs!Ever since then day after 24 hours till today says PSNA already 32 days today!!

  37. I got mine and youngest Stimulus Check back in April, but I didn’t get $500 for my oldest son. Who do I Contact about that? Or what should I do?

  38. i did not get for my son or daughter either. this is bull crap. they are saying we will have to wait til next year when we do taxes. what about us that don’t have to do taxes because on s.s.i? this is so frustrating, cant get a hold of a single person. some people got it so why didn’t all of us that qualify?

    1. I get social security disability benefits (SSDI) married with a 2 year old daughter, a 8 year old & a 16 year old & we filed jointly with the 3 dependent children and filled out all the information it ask for on the non-filers on the website way before the 22th of April. On April 30, 2020 we received the $2,400 payment for us, but non of our children got theirs yet. Then I read where they are telling people that get VA, SSDI that they have til May 5, 2020 to file their dependents on the non-filers. Well we did that the first time round & it won’t let you go back and redo it over again. They say the letter the IRS is suppose to send you is useless to b/c all it does is redirect you back to their website, but we haven’t received it either. So the question is why do people have wait til they file their 2020 taxes to get their dependents payments when people that get SSDI, SSI, VA ect.. don’t file taxes. I know they are dealing with a lot people worldwide, but do have to suffer because they didn’t look at non-filers more closely, because the dependents Info. is right there on the first page right under mine & my wife info. was.

    2. I’m in the same situation and I even updated my information by 4-22 like it asked because of a error they found. And it still didn’t work, go figure ‍♂️. But it’s the government so I should of expected this I guess. Ughhhhh , so frustrating.

  39. you no what really ticks me off is that i am on social security disability my so is 16 years old he will be 17 in october i feel theirs is takeing that money and they will tell me that he was 17 years o9ld when they sent it out now you oh us the irs is up to something just like this corona virus every body gets locked up and cannot work thats money to the irs my son gets social security under me so i supose they will tell me that is your 500 dollars i have done every thing that they asked me to i dint have to fill out taxes but since i have a child under 17 years old you have to i filled it out back in april 5th way before they say we need to so i filled out and it did me no good i have not recieved his 500 dollars i have been on this danm computer the last 5 days trying to get awnsers for the 500 stimulus payment found nothing

  40. I’m disability patient with 2 small kids dependent. did my kids will recibi $500.00 dollars

    1. Am on disability myself as well with 2 children and only got check for me not the credit for the children. so at this point I don’t believe in the government helping people much in this hard crisis but just the ones that do taxes pretty much.


  41. Bertil: what do I need to make to receive my child’s $500.00 payment if I got my stimulus check?

  42. I also did the non flier form my son an I receive SSI and i have a daughter 15, i filled out the dependents part before April 22 an i only received 1200. Why are our children being excluded from this?? We the parents did everything right the way it was asked of us to do to receive it but yet our children get left out.. lies lies makes me sick with false hope ..

    1. My son did not get his can you please tell me where on line I have to go to do this I no we have till the 5of this week I got mine but not his thank you Julie

    2. I have am struggling with same problem. I am an SSA/SSI Disability recipient. My children are attached to my case, so I also receive a small monthly payment for each of them ($11.00 per child) but is part of MY CASE which arrives via direct deposit monthly. I also filled out the online form for “non filers” before April 22nd for those individuals on Disability, who don’t file taxes and qualified for the $500 payment for each dependent child. Afterwards I received a confirmation so I know the form was submitted. Still, yesterday i received MY check BY MAIL for $1,200 and it didn’t include the $500 per child. I don’t know how to correct this situations. I also thought it was worth mentioning the fact that my check cane by mail, and not direct deposit. This seems odd to me since govt already had all my and my childrens info, along with my banking info through disability payments. I also was required to give that info again when filling out non filers form. So why did my check come via mail and not direct deposit? Also, what steps can I take to fix this situation? if the answer is to wait, Should I expect the checks for my children to come by mail or direct deposit? Another concern I have is that it’s not possible for me to check the news everyday, and the deadlines and requirements keep changing. I worry, I’ll be required to fill out another form based on my case but the deadline will have passed by time I see it. I needed this money right away as it won’t necessarily benefit me as much as it would now.

      , my check arrived via mail and was not direct deposited as was indicated it would be on govt’ websites. I also filed the “non tax form” before April 22, 2020 which I was told I must do to receive the $500 per child) with stimulus check. and didn’t/don’t file taxes before April 22nd. This included my banking info, childrens SS#’s, etc. which they already had. which included there The $500 for each of my kids wasn’t included and I but today I received a check for my childrenchildren for years many years. Nevertheless, I filed a non for each child also direct deposit as part of my case. payment ($11 each) as part of my case. as I receive 3 small payment for each of my 3 children The government already has all required info for my children and I (banking, etc.) as they are in my case and I children and I (including banking info for for monthly direct deposit payment monthly payments). each my and children info (banking including info, kids SS#’s etc) bank account t I filled out the non filers form on IRS website before April 22 which included all info required Information. for myself and my 3 children. Today 5/4/20 I received a check by mail (not direct deposit) for $1,200 only, and the $500 on each child wasn’t included.

  43. I just got my son back from his dads but I did not fill him on my taxes how can I add him so I get the 500 because he is living with me now

  44. Entered all the information in the Non-filer portal right for my dependents “children” and received confirmation email that my information were accepted by IRS and eventually received stimulus check of $2400 for me and my wife, but did not receive the $500 payment for my children. What should I do to claim or receive the payment for my children as well?


  45. Did everything correct. I’m a mother with 4 dependents, married, file HOH. used IRS tool HOH to submit bank info as instructed since i have children and wanted direct deposit. Got my $1200 yesterday 4/29/20 but nothing for my kids ($2000). I’m furious! This is supposed to help us, bullshit, I now have to wait until next year to filed for a credit because the of their processing error didnt issue my dependents their portion? My 2018 and 2019 tax info list all my dependents nothing changed! And im to the midst of all this my greedy landlord served me with an illegal no fault eviction after 10 years, having to move with no money makes this mother of 4 now broke, jobless and homeless! THANKS FOR A STIMULIOUS OF FALSE HOPE…This is not the American dream I was promised!!!

    1. I raise my grandaughter. Didn’t get no money for her. Suppose to get her 500.00. But don’t know how to file?? Help me. She is on welfare is 9 yrs old.thanks.

      1. Is she going to get check or not? Nobody is telling me nothing. Do I have to do something??

  46. I currently receive Social Security income, my husband does not receive any income at the moment so we’re both not required to fill out a tax forms. I went to the non-filers form selected married filing jointly. I put my husbands name his Social Security number my name my Social Security number and all three of our children who qualify. Yesterday we received our stimulus for just ourselves and not our children. That was $1500 that I was counting on :( also note I submitted all of the information on April 10 And was accepted by the IRS. That was a couple weeks before the ssi deadline of April 22 so I’m lost.

  47. I used the non filers portal on 4.10 and got an acceptance email the next day..there hasn’t been any changes since should it take this long to receive our stimulus..just frustrating that there is no way to reach out for assistance and we are sitting ducks

    1. I am having the same problem I don’t know what to do or who to call.can someone help me.

    2. U still haven’t received your stimulus check? I filed June 30th.July 10th got need more info .IIt asked for me the agi which was o I didn’t receive a refund last year or the year before nor I owe.Kept putting 0 for both locked me out.Ever since then I get a PSNA!!Frustrating

  48. I receive Ssi and my 7yr old son does as well so I’m not typically one who needs to file taxes.I filled out the free file form on 04/10 an received my stimulus payment today but it was only the $1,200 not the additional $500 for my son. All The information I entered for him was correct does anyone know why I didn’t receive the additional Money and maybe had anyone had the same issue?

    1. Same issue here and I have 3 dependent. Got my check but didn’t get the extra for them and everything is correct on E-File.

    2. I had the exact same issue and also filled the free file form out and had it accepted. For me it was for 3 kids.

    3. Hi Crystal I have the same situation but my son is 12. Did you find out why the additional $500 wasn’t included?

    4. Yes same here. I used the non filer link since i dont have an income, just today i received the 1,200 just posted in my bank account, BUT there is no additional for my 1 child as I filed also as my dependent.
      So same situation and dont know where to get the answer why I didn’t received for my child.

    5. Me and my daughter had the Same issues. We didn’t get for our underage children. Don’t know what to do

    6. It looks like I’m not alone with this issue. I also did not receive the $500 with my $1,200 deposit I haven’t been able to find any answers that apply to my situation or to why I didn’t receive it.

    7. I am.having the same issue!! I received the 1200 for myself but not the 500 for both of my daughters. And I am going crazy trying to find a way to get someone on the phone. I guarantee we are not the only ones.

    8. This happened to me this morning. What do we do? Widowed and low income asking.

    9. I recieved the $1,200 this morning. Nothing for my son. No one else claimed him, he’s a natural born citizen. Not sure what to do or if I’ll ever get it.

    10. This happened to me too, I can’t find out anything!? Everyone else I know got for their child, don’t understand where my sons money is!?? Or what to do?? Thanks, any info would be great!

    11. I also just received my $1200 and did not get $500 for my daughter. I think maybe my ex will receive it because I let him claim her back 4-5 yrs ago and I did not have to file.

    12. I have the same issue I have two children under 17 an didn’t get it an wonder why as well

    13. I adopted my 8 yr old granddaughter in 2015 , I’m 65 on disability , I don’t have taxes taken out .I did file my homestead tax return this year . I got my stimules but did not get $500. For my granddaughter and didn’t know why ?

  49. I recently separated from my husband after finding out he used me for immigration purposes we filed jointly he is going to receive the payment myself an my children who live with me full time how can I stop this?

      1. Good Day ! Yes, I somewhat understand as a veteran/married; I don’t have to file for taxes as total/permanent disabled veteran/taxed exempt ( not required to file any taxes for both VA/Social Security Disability. We have two (2) children females ages 2 yrs-old and 6 yrs-old. And we have been told you’ll our Government may extend the time for veterans who disabled ? Today is April 23, 2020 and we are observing stay-at- home and we just founded out about this and please be considered due to this crisis ! Our names are: Charles A. Bahati, Wife, Siham Lisbat, Daughters names: Yasmin H. Bahati and Khadija B. Bahati Please Reply as soon as possible ! THANKS AND STAY SAFE,OK.

      2. This brings you to.where we have to file for non filers. The dependent information is there. They just aren’t paying dependents it seems.

      3. What if I filed before the deadline, under non filers and didn’t receive Child credit, also what do we do if a child recently turned 18, in Highshool recives disability, does she need to file herself? My husband and I received ours but not the 3 children plus 18 yr. Old i see deadline may 5

  50. HELP!!! I’m confused about what to expect for my 17 (18 in July) year old daughter. I am disabled and on SSI, I know I qualify for the stimulus check but I don’t (am not required to) file a tax return. She however does file for returns as she works and goes to school. Should we just file her taxes as normal and will she get her own $1200 check? I don’t know if I should be filing something out for her as my dependent to get the $500 dependent money or what?

    1. At 17 nearly 18, can she qualify for her own stimulus payment? I’m super confused about the “under 17” rule and how that will affect any payment since she’s still legally a dependent. Why did they do it that way?

  51. My exhusband claimed our 16 year old daughter on his 2019 taxes and got the $500 extra for her for the stimulus check, but she lives full time with me. Im on SSI and havent gotten my stimulus check yet. Am I going to get a $500 stimulus check for her also being she lives with me?

    1. I’m on ssd and my daughter collects as well I did the non-filers and received mine but nothing for her.. I’ve been researching like crazy.. being your ex claimed your child, you won’t get it.. I’m so sorry to tell you that, but that’s part of the stipulation…. It sucks and honestly since you allow him to claim her he should give you the 500.00 … But that will be a civil matter if you can’t come to an agreement on your own… Again I’m sorry to give you bad news but with all the research I’ve done it continually says that “broken” families, the one who claims the child on taxes is the one who will get the 500.00

      1. Anyone who has dependent children and has SSI, SSDI, Veteran, etc. should go to before May 5th and research how you can add your dependent information. I am not clear about if you’ve already received payment how it works but I did see something about a deadline so it may help you. Like I said I don’t really know exactly what it is saying I just noticed it and thought I would pass the little info I garnered on to you to try to help. I hope you can get some help and/or info on how to get the additional money.

        1. I went through the IRS I I went through the IRS. Gov website website to fill out the free file form on April 10th way before both of website to fill out the free file form on April 10th way before April 22nd and May 5th deadlines an added my dependent on the form received my personal stimulus and still no word no stimulus and no way to check why I haven’t received my dependents $500 stimulus. I see we all are going through the same problems I thought it was just myself so they really need to put out some information on this particular problem.

        2. I’m so sorry this is happening to all of you. Like I said I wasn’t really sure what it was exactly for but I saw those key words, dependent money, and a deadline so I tried to get it on here fast just in case it could help even one of you. Hopefully they will give you some kind of information or a way for you to make them aware of the problem. I sincerely do wish all of you the best of luck and hope it gets resolved quickly for you.

  52. I’m also seeing reference code 109 (internal use only). Does anyone know what this is?? Especially since they aren’t taking phone calls right now…

    1. I received the same error. My AGI is under the 12,000.00 dollar withholding limit. This makes my income $0 and my refund $0. It appears that the IRS form does not accommodate this scenario. I am eligible for the 1,200 stimulus check, but I will have to wait for it to be mailed to me.

  53. I had barely filed my 2019 taxes just last Wednesday. I already received my $1200 payment but my daughter who I just had in 2019 was not claimed on 2018 only claimed on 2019. Since I just filed my taxes with her being a dependent, will I receive my $500 dependent credit later on after they process my 2019 taxes or will I just not get it now? The check status button doesn’t work.

    1. What is the get status saying if I may ask?

      As far as your daughter when you get your letter in the mail regarding your payment I believe they give you contact information so you can let them know any problems that you have with the payment such as dependents being left out of payment. They are supposed to mail them within 15 days after the payment to you is made.

    2. Same exact thing happened to me. Had a baby in 2019, filed taxes and they were accepted April 1st, yet they used my 2018 taxes for the stimulus and sent it to my old bank account. I received my tax return deposit with my baby as a dependent 3 days after the stimulus money in the right account. So frustrating.
      So far, I’ve read nothing about our specific situation and there is no way to correct it as far as I can tell. :(

    3. That happened to me also I’ve claimed my boys since they were born and they are 13 & 6 . I received the 1,200 but not the portion for my 2 dependents and I’ve used Turbo tax for 2018 and 2019 and JacksonHweitt 2016-2017. I was confused of why I didn’t recevie it but my husband revived 1,700 for him and my step daughter at the same time .

  54. I qualify for the 2020 Economic Impact Payment. I filed my 2018 tax return and had my refund applied to my 2019 estimated taxes. I have not yet filed my 2019 tax return. So the IRS does not have direct deposit information for me from my tax returns. I am retired and get Social Security benefits, which are direct deposited monthly to my bank account. Will the IRS get my direct deposit information from Social Security and direct deposit my Economic Impact Payment into my bank account? Or will they send me a check? I cannot get on to Get My Payment to give them my direct deposit information. The site say “Status Not Available”.

    1. I have the exact same issue as Heather (above) -haven’t filed 2019, applied 2018 overpayment to 2019 estimated taxes, no direct deposit information on tax return. Receive monthly SS benefits by direct deposit but am not able to update my information on the stimulus direct deposit form.

      1. I am elated! Today, I was able to get into the Get My Payment site and add my direct deposit information. I should note that the site has been taken down for updates each of the last three evenings. I also noticed that one has to be careful how you input your address on the first screen in order to get into the next screen. On the next screen where you put in your adjusted gross, refund and bank information, check the circle where it asked if you got a refund. And, if you had your refund applied to your estimated taxes, put 0 (number zero) in the amount box. Hope it works for you, as it did for me.

  55. If you used the portal to update your dad info how long before the irs deposits the check. It says it will deposit it into my account but I don’t have a deposit date yet and I updated the info as soon as it was up early early Wednesday morning. Mnuchin said “several days” but it has now been 5 days.

    1. What do I need to do when there are saying that my stimulus check will be deposit in to another account that is not mine that I do not recognize

    2. I am having this same issue. I updated my bank account information on the get my payment tool. It says I am eligible but it has not provided my with a payment date yet. I updated it the day the tool was launched.

      1. Jimmy and Diana…I’m hoping that maybe it will be tomorrow. I read some other comments in various websites and several people said they received an email from their bank saying they have dd scheduled for the 22nd but the Irs still hasn’t updated their side. My bank does not notify on pending deposits so I won’t know until it’s done. So hopefully

        1. Jimmy,
          I didn’t. But it may be because that portal opened two days earlier than it was supposed to so it may have pushed everything back a week. Because Ways & Means said if you update your dd info by Wednesday you would receive a check the next week ( I would assume on Wednesdays). So, if my thinking is correct, I’m hoping it will be no later than the 29th.

  56. I have a disabled son who is 24 I claimed him on taxes but I didn’t get the 500 why

    1. I also have a disabled daughter. I don’t think they are eligible because we claimed them on our taxes.

  57. There is nowhere to enter my bank information under Get My Payment to received stimulus check direct deposited as with my last taxes filed of 2018 I owed so my bank information was not given.

    1. So I received the message stating that because I received SSI I’d have to add my son who lives with Me since he was born to receive his stimulus money yet the sight will not allow Me to do exactly how am I supposed to when the dead line is Wednesday

      1. I think you have to go on the IRS website and file a non-return “return” There’sa link where non-filers can file in order to update or enter their information?

  58. When i check my status it says the stimulus was deposited into bank account ending in…. MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. What does that mean? I can’t find any information, I can’t call them to find out. What does it mean when it shows the social as the bank account?

    1. My daughters is saying the same thing and I can’t find an answer either….Did u get a rapid refund when u filed…I read that tax preparers open a temporary account to have ur refund deposited and they can take their fees out…

  59. I’m unemployed. I only receive food stamps.
    Do I qualify for a stimulus check.

    1. Yes. You do. As long as you have a valid SS# and are under a certain incline limit, which you are if you’re unemployed and receiving food support you qualify.

  60. I received the $1200 but not the $500 for my child. My child is disabled and I receive SSI benefits for him. I filed taxes and claimed him as my dependent. I already received my refund.

    1. Have you found out anything? Same happened to me… my son is on ssi and I didn’t get the $500 for him…

  61. I made $83.989.00 I only received $140.55 for stimulus. I do owe $600.00 for this tax season. Why did I only get $140.55. I thought they wouldn’t take the amount of taxes owed!

  62. I Sandra Allen would like to know when thepayment gonna have answer to the direct Express card please call me with a honest answer cause no got money from direct Express and when are we gonna get and answer on when money coming call me at 919-349 1201 today for a answer please God bless u thanks Sandra Allen

  63. I have an 10 year old that I did not receive the 500 for, but I did get the 1200 for myself. What steps can I take?

    1. Adding to Taylor’s question, I have an 8-month-old and I already did file my taxes for 2019 and had claimed him as a dependant. However, I also only received the $1,200.

      1. I also did not receive the $500 for my 1.5 year old. I claimed her on my taxes this year and received my child tax credit and everything for her. So why am I not receiving the $500 when I claimed her as my dependent?

  64. If the IRS is going by 2019 tax return that I filed then I don’t understand why it says my money was deposited into my bank account 4/15/20 . I checked my card and there is no money on my card, My tax money was deposited on a prepaid money network card this year, still got the card it says there is zero balance, so question is where is my money? If the IRS went by my 2019 tax return and it says it deposited on 4/15/20 then it should be on the card, not anywhere else. And it’s not on there.

  65. My ex-fiancee claimed me and my kids in 2018, the kids custody is with my parents. And I moved out of his house last October 2019. He called to tell me he gotten the checks but wasn’t giving me mine or kids. How do get my part and my dad get the kids part.

    (His bank account was closed so it got sent back to IRS)

  66. I am a single mom and my son lives with me full-time. My ex claimed our son in 2018. I haven’t completed/filed 2019 taxes yet. I assume I will be receiving the $1200 since my income is low, but what about the $500 for my son? Should I rush to complete my 2019 return to get this check? How do I get credit and receive what I am eligible for? You mention we may be able to request the $500 on 2020 taxes as a credit? Please advise. Thank you.

  67. I am a single mom and my son lives with me full-time. My ex claimed our son in 2018. I haven’t completed/filed 2019 taxes yet. I assume I will be receiving the $1200 since my income is low, but what about the $500 for my son? Should I rush to complete my 2019 return to get this check? How do I get credit and receive what I am eligible for? Thank you.

  68. I had a baby in June of 2019 and I filed my taxes for 2019 about 2 weeks ago. I received my stimulus check today, however, I did not receive the $500 for having a dependent. What do I do? How do I get this sent to me?

    1. I also had a baby in 2019 but i have not filed my 2019 tax return yet. I already got my stimulus check yesterday based on my 2018 tax return, which obviously does not show any dependents yet. If i file my 2019 tax return now, will i get the $500 per child stimulus? Do i need to do anything else after?

  69. I filed my taxes April 1st and I had a baby the end of last year, so I claimed her as a dependent. I have not received my tax return yet.. it’s due to be deposited 4/17. Anyway, I received my stimulus money to my old bank account not my new bank account i updated with my taxes this year. ***** I did not receive the additional child payment. What do I do?! ******

  70. I received the 2400 for filing jointly. I have an infant daughter who receives SSI? I didn’t get the $500. Do I need to do anything or while it come in a paper check?

  71. I pay estimated taxes by mail and for 2019 overpaid my taxes. When if filed 2019 I applied the overpayment to 2020 taxes. So when I go online to give my bank information there is no place to put that information. I tried putting the overpayment amount as a refund but it says that information is not correct……

    1. I had the same problem. I was able to successfully submit the bank info by checking the circle that said I got a refund and then entering zero as the refund amount.

  72. Once again…’cannot determine eligibility’ response on Get My Payment. This also means I can’t enter direct deposit information on the ‘Get My Payment’ site. I have not yet filed this year, did not get a refund last year but they should have enough info to let me enter direct deposit. But two possibilities (1) The only address the IRS has for me is a PO Box (25 years standing) and do they know that’s ripe situation for ripoffs and so are double checking address info against prior returns?. Or (2) They need to make sure that their direct deposit info is confirmed against a bank account with the same name. Just too many things can go wrong with hundreds of millions of checks being issued simultaneously…

  73. I owe taxes, when I tried adding my bank information, it said the IRS can’t determine eligibility? Is this portal up to date or are they still working out the kinks.

  74. Hello, My husband won a lottery ticket in 2018 so it made our AGI $335,000. We only make $85,000 a year. Our AGI for 2019 is $85,000. Are we still entitled to that money? When I try to track our check it says that payment status not available. Please check the FAQ’s on our website. I feel we are still entitled to that money because it was only high because we had to report the winnings on our tax return. Can you please help with this on a way we can get our money? Thank you so much for your help.

    1. You sound greedy..”we only make $85,000 a year” wish i made 1/3 of that !!!!! and the have the balls to say you won $335,000 and you are worried about the stimulus money…Why don’t you thank God and make a donation to a worth while organization or a church.

  75. I got a email back stating the IRS has accepted your Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info return..
    Does this Mean im getting a stimulus check

  76. I only receive $1,700.00 and I have 2 child under 18 years for depended filing in my taxes
    can you please give some answer

    1. I got only the $1200 and no dependent at all which I claimed on my taxes. How do I dispute or get the credit owed?

  77. The “Get My Payment” portal doesn’t not give me the option to add my bank info. I have filed 2018 taxes but did not include my bank info. Will o be able to add my bank info?

  78. I submitted my 2019 taxes 7 days ago. I set that refund to direct deposit to my current bank. My 2018 refund went to a chase account that I have since closed. As soon as the tool went live I checked and just my luck it went to chase. Chase told me they rejected it. How can I update the info on where to send it with the irs ?

  79. I authorized automatic withdrawal through turbo tax. Will they auto deposit to the same bank account?

  80. I also owe and I tried the new portal and it said payment status is not available, IRS can’t determine eligibility….so what does that mean?

  81. What if it says payment status is not available and the IRS can’t determine eligibility? What’s next?

  82. The portal to check on the stimulus check said it couldn’t determine my eligibility at this time… Is this fully functional yet or is there something wrong with my submission? I don’t file taxes but submitted payment info on website

  83. I changed banks since my last tax return. I’ve checked the IRS website and it says my stimulus check will be deposited 4/15 in the old account. Will the IRS validate the account before sending the funds? Will I have to wait until I get the letter before I can give them my new bank account information?
