$250 Stimulus Check in 2012 for Social Security Recipients

by Mike Holman

Life nowadays has become harder and harder every day. Many are unemployed, the crime rate keeps on increasing everywhere, many people experience hunger and different forms of sufferings, and the worst part is that no matter how much you want to work harder, it seems jobs are too few and cannot accommodate all of the world’s huge population.

Will there be a Social Security $250 Stimulus Check in 2013?

A $250 stimulus check in 2012 for social security recipients is a not a sure thing at present.  The last time this check was issued, it was supposed to make up for the fact that there was no cost of living raise for Social Security recipients.  Given that the SS payments are going up 3.6% in 2012, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to pay this check out.

Learn how to calculate the 3.6% Social Security raise.

It would be nice to get some extra money, but given the large debts of the U.S. government, it is very unlikely that any stimulus check will be issued.

Previous stimulus checks

In 2008, a $600 stimulus check was paid out to most taxpayers in an effort to boost the economy by getting more cash into the hands of people likely to spend it.

In 2009, a $250 stimulus check was sent to all recipients of Social Security (retired people) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) for disabled people.

I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD GET A CHECK FOR ALL THE BULL THEY HAD TO PUT UP WITH THEY SAY THE JOBS IS HERE THATS NOT TRUE THE JOBS ARE NOT BE FOUND HERE WE PICKED THE PRE. BECAUSE HE SAID HE WOULD FIX THE PRO. HE MADE IT WORSE THEN WHAT IT WAS I GUSS HE DONT SHOP FOR HIM SELF OR HE WOULD KNOW THE GAS IS GOING BACK UP THE POOR MAN CANT BY MEATS OR ANYTHING ELES MY MOTHER IS ON A FIXED INC. SOME TIMES WE HAVE TO PICH IN AND I AM NOT SAYING I WOULD NOT BUT IT HEARTS EVERY ONE HE DONT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING I THINK

I think that he needs to get out of office. Everyone can say bush left him with all of this whatever he has done nothing but screw it up more. Another thingis why don’t we look at welfare recipient’s over half of the people collecting don’t use it correctly. Im a tax payer i work my as off for someone that recieves help that drives a better car than me has a nicer house and probably does drugs or sells drugs. The people who actually need it cant get it. But if you have several kids without a daddy u best believe they will be getting 500 or so in foodstamps. U wanna solve hunger look into the system. Childsupport is another thing why don’t they have to show that its actually going to the child. There r a lot of true mother’s out there that use it for good but most do. I think all of this needs to be looked into. Obama you have messed up a lot of things maybe you should dig deeper and actually lookat the little people if it wasn’t for us you would have nothing like the car u drive ur clothes and ect. Remember we are the u.s. you r nothing without us

In my opinion, I think that if families would help one another more things would be easier. In some parts of the world families still care about one another but not here in America. It used to be that families would come together and pull their resources together whether it meant taking turns babysitting, sharing a car or whatever and everyone was better off. These days it’s every man, woman, and child looking out for themself and only themself. Personally, I think that if families cared more about one another people wouldn’t be suffering so much. For example, my sister and I both struggled with working dead end jobs and trying to raise our kids. Just paying the monthly bills is almost impossible. So, I come up with this idea that we share the rent on one three bedroom house, put the boys in one room, the girls in another and my sister and I in another. My idea was that if we did this we wouldn’t have to work so many extra hours and we could go back to school and better our lives and in the mean time not struggle so hard to make monthly bills. Her answer, no! She would rather us both struggle in poverty working low paying jobs than to work together, help with each others kids and go back to school while we worked. Families don’t care so why should the government? That’s my opinion :(

I think it is very hard for people on ssd and ssi to even live and pay all there bills every month they should give these people more help like a stimulus check this would also help the economy out also

i think they should give us the check , not just because i am on S.S.I. but for the 2 years before the increase this past year we didn’t get anything,no check and no raise, so in that retrospect they should give it to all concerned.

I wish the right people would sit down and give a damn the americans are actually having it. We all deserve a 2012 stimulus check and it will give the economy a jump start again. I am not talking a 250.00 stimulus amount, that will not do it! I mean a generous stimulus package. I would like to see all the american people get what they deserve. Yes I am for helping everyone, but please for the first time help us first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is a very serious situation and we need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

when can i expect my stemuless check to be on my check card

12 todd

i do not think we will recieve one this year…..again…..so keeping faith that someone out there will send these messages to the gov’t and let them see what we have posted over the years on here……i believe that if all those officals were to experience what we go through for one year and live like we do, then perhaps we might, and i mean might get the help we really need……

13 fantasia

There was no cost of living increase for people on Social Security or SSI in I believe 2010 and 2011. So where were out stimulus checks then? I havae medical bills I would like to pay off.

14 todd

yeah i know the feeling there was no raise in ’10 and ’11 and this last year we got our heap cut in half because the raise compinsated for the raise…..so yes i believe there will be no raise this year since it’s about to go into 2013 and looking into the future for that as well……not counting on it…..

15 Yolanda Mercado

I wish for them to send extra stimulus check of $250 or more and a good race for all those single family in need and for people on ssi and social security and more for the legally blind people on ssi please help the port family that really need it . not the rich people

16 todd

…..with 7 days left before 2013…. i think you can count on NOT getting the check this year……hoping for next year……ill be long dead before they do it again and im only 44…..not gonna hold my breath anymore because no1 seems to care anymore……

17 Yolanda Mercado
