Social Security and RR Retirement recipients with dependents: Act by 4/22/20.

Special alert for benefit recipients who don’t file a tax return and have dependents

The IRS issued a notice today to taxpayers who received Social Security, Railroad Retirement, SSI, and VA benefits and also have dependent children. The first two groups must file by noon 4/22/20 or else they won’t receive the additional $500 payments for dependent children in their advance payments this year. The second two groups will have slightly longer. If they miss the deadline, they will have to wait until after they file their 2020 returns in 2021 to get the extra $500 payments.
