May 5 deadline for certain SSI recipients with dependents to apply for additional aid
According to the federal government, people with children under 17 years of age who don't file tax returns and who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) will automatically start receiving a $1,200 stimulus payment from the IRS soon.
But they're also able to receive an additional $500 for each qualifying child under 17 as long as they complete the necessary information by May 5.
To complete that information, they must visit the IRS Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info webpage and turn in all required information as quickly as possible.
