By June 4, 2009 more than 52 million stimulus payments of $250 each should have been received by eligible Social Security and Supplement Security Income (SSI) recipients.
If you feel you should have received a payment, and did not, call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contact your local Social Security office.
Not everyone receiving Social Security and SSI payments is entitled to the stimulus payment. The following is a list of individuals not entitled to this payment:
Anyone living outside of the United States or its territories;
Individuals who are no longer lawfully present in the United States;
Individuals whose benefits have been suspended under the law for giving false or misleading statements;
Social Security beneficiaries who are minor children (disabled adult children receiving Social Security or children receiving SSI payments will receive the one-time payment);
SSI beneficiaries who receive benefits at a reduced rate of $30 because they live in a medical treatment facility (such as a nursing home or hospital) and Medicaid pays over 50 percent of the cost of their care;
Individuals only entitled to Medicare and not to Social Security or SSI benefits; and
Prisoners, fugitive felons, and probation and parole violators.
