When Will You Receive Covid-19 Check
If you get Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits via direct deposit and didn't file a 2018 or 2019 tax return: Your payment will arrive in late April.
Nearly 99% of people who get these benefits receive them via direct deposit. That means the overwhelming majority of Social Security recipients are scheduled to receive coronavirus relief checks by the end of April.
Those who receive a paper check are in for a longer wait: The IRS will begin mailing checks the week of April 20, starting with those who have incomes below $10,000. Each week, it will send another five million checks to groups with progressively higher incomes.
If you get SSI: If you're an adult who receives SSI benefits, you should have your payment by early May, at the latest. Your payment will be deposited in the same way you usually receive your benefit.
