SSI recipients will receive their Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) with no further action needed on their part. SSI recipients who want to claim additional stimulus money for a qualifying child dependent must have made the request using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here Tool prior to November 21, 2020. 

If you receive government benefits, aren’t required to file a tax return, and never received the additional $500 (EIP1) or $600 (EIP2) amount per qualifying child, claim the total missing amount via the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return.

Any missing EIP3 amounts cannot be claimed until you file your 2021 taxes in 2022.
