2. For Social Security recipients who didn’t file taxes in 2018 or 2019, #IRS will use the information on Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 for their economic impact payments. www.irs.gov/coronavirus
3. Social Security recipients will automatically receive economic impact payments without the need to file taxes for 2018 or 2019. More details from #IRS at www.irs.gov/coronavirus #COVIDreliefIRS
