Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

More Stimulus Checks Hitting More Central Ohio Bank Accounts

Apr 9, 2021
Press Release

COLUMBUS, OH—With more than 150 million Americans having already received their stimulus payment, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) announced that, beginning this week, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is sending Economic Impact Payments (EIP) of up to $1,400 from the American Rescue Plan, P.L. 117-2, to tens of millions of Social Security recipients and other eligible individuals who have not yet received theirs.

“Help is here, and I want to make sure all Central Ohio seniors get the money that they so desperately need and deserve,” Beatty said. “I was proud to help pass the American Rescue Plan and am doing everything in my power to keep my constituents informed on all the support and resources available to them through this landmark, life-changing piece of legislation.”

Of note, this latest round of electronic payments applies specifically to those who receive Social Security, survivor or disability (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) benefits and who did not file a 2019 or 2020 tax return or did not use the Non-Filers tool. Most payments will be automatically deposited into banks accounts or loaded onto an individual’s Direct Express Card they use to receive Social Security benefits. Those waiting on paper checks or debit cards through the mail should expect to receive their payments in the coming days.
