Situation no. 3: You check the following circumstances 

The ‘unlucky trifecta’ might be responsible for your stimulus check issue. Here are those three circumstances:

  • You’re paying the consequences for not filing a tax return.
  • Also, you ignored the IRS’ ‘Non-Filers’ tool in order to register for the previous stimulus payment by November 21.
  • And lastly, you are not receiving any federal benefits like Veterans Affairs benefits, Social Security, or Supplemental Security Income.

If all these circumstances apply to you, Uncle Sam doesn’t have your bank account information nor your actual address on file.

The IRS advises those who find themselves in this situation to claim their stimulus payments as a tax credit as soon as they file their 2020 income tax return.

  1. How can we get the stimulus money for the children that we have under the age of 17? I never got it with the first round or this last round. How do I go about getting it?

  2. On Social Security and got first stimulus direct deposit. Don’t understand why not second one. They know were on Social Security with low income that we do not have to file. All previous information said we should not worry because they had our direct deposit information from SS. Now when I check status I get NOT AVAILABLE So now I guess I have to make out tax return to claim the stimulus.

  3. According to the IRA website my check was mailed on 1/6/2021 – today is 1/13/2021 and I still have not received it. It should have been a direct deposit as was the 1st stimulus amount. My husband has not been issued a check at all he should have as he received the first stimulus check. his name is Lawrence A Huber
