[ARCHIVED] Still Waiting on Your Stimulus Check?

Cash pict

Did you know that millions of eligible people are at risk of not receiving their Economic Impact Payments (EIP), commonly called “stimulus checks” because they aren’t aware they need to complete the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) “Non-Filer” tool to claim it? Many people automatically receive their stimulus payment either by filing their 2018 or 2019 federal tax return and/or based on participation in certain federally administered programs such as Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Railroad Retirement, or Veterans Affairs pension.

Households who are receiving public assistance such as Colorado Works and Adult Financial may choose not to file federal income taxes due to low income. Filing a tax return is optional for people earning below a certain income threshold. By not filing federal income taxes, this means they will not automatically receive the stimulus payment and must complete the IRS “Non-Filer” tool, a simplified online form, in order to receive the stimulus payment. 

The IRS has developed a Stimulus Payments suite of resources. Eligible individuals have until October 15, 2020 to file for their EIP.

People who are not typically required to file a tax return will need to fill out a form to receive the payment. Get more details and complete the Non-Filers form here. Applicants will need an email address to create an account and will be required to provide: 

  • their full name (and name of spouse, if present), 
  • current mailing address, 
  • date of birth, 
  • valid Social Security number, 
  • bank account number, type, and routing number, 
  • Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) from the IRS, if received earlier this year, 
  • driver’s license or state-issued ID, if someone has one; 
  • and the following for each qualifying child: name, Social Security number or Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number, and their relationship to the filer or filer’s spouse.

If an application has already been submitted, individuals can visit the Get My Payment page to:

1) check the status of their application, 2) see their payment type, and 3) provide bank account information (in certain limited cases).
