From what I've read if you filed a tax return but did not have direct deposit this year (have in the past) BUT your Social Security check is direct deposit you will receive your stimulus payment by direct deposit. Correct?

If somehow you don't make it into these 2 categories and you qualify for a payment, you can still get the money by filing a 2020 tax return and claiming the refundable credit.
My 22 year old is disabled and lives at home (autism) and draws a monthly SS check via direct deposit. He is claimed as a dependent obviously.

So he would count as any "normal" child or does he get his own $1200? He works limited hours at a job that amounts to about $120 per month. That's his only income outside of his SS check and his total yearly income is like $11k.

That is my understanding, yes.

I'm not positive but I believe the answer is no he won't get his own $1,200 as he's claimed as a dependent on your return. If it's close (whether or not you provide half of his support), maybe you could not claim him as a dependent this year and then he would get the credit on his 2020 tax return.

Here is one explanation:

That confirms what I kinda suspected and that is he won't be getting one and we won't be getting a child credit even though he's getting the same support now at 22 that he was getting when he was under 17 which is 100%. It is what it is.

The wife and I are both working our essential jobs thru this COVID-19 crisis so not getting a check on his behalf isn't a huge deal. As for next year continuing to claim him as a dependent is the better option.

Thanks for the replies!

You should use this application if:

You did not file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return because your gross income was under $12,200 ($24,400 for married couples). This includes people who had no income. Or
You weren’t required to file a 2018 or 2019 federal income tax return for other reasons
If you receive these benefits, we already have your information and you will receive $1,200. Do not use this application if you receive:

Social Security retirement benefits
Social Security Disability Insurance benefits
Railroad Retirement and Survivor Benefits
Special note: People in these groups who have qualifying children under age 17 can use this application to claim the $500 payment per child.

https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-...ment-info-here
Thank you for the link! I filled it out. Got a message saying I would know whether or not the IRS rejected or accepted it within 48 hours. I hope they accept it. It'd be like a miracle for me. I don't have any income at all and don't qualify for any financial assistance other than Medicaid and food stamps. I've been worried how I'll pay rent and other bills.

I was wondering the same thing, cause i always have them mail my refund from my taxes.
But since i rec've my SS check in the mail, i figured they'd see my direct deposit w/that and
go ahead and mail my stimulus check. Fingers crossed!

Looks like SuiteLiving is confirming that...

Your post isn't entirely clear. If you're saying that you received paper check tax refunds and paper checks from SS, you won't be getting a direct deposit unless you go to the new web site and enter your banking information.
