If you were claimed by your parents as a dependent on their 2019 tax return, you are not eligible for either the EIP1 or EIP2. Your parents also will not receive stimulus money for you if you are age 17 or older by the end of 2019.

However, if you file your own individual tax return for tax year 2020 and are not able to be claimed as a dependent by any other taxpayer, you could claim both stimulus payments via the Recovery Rebate Credit.
