$250 SSI 2009 Stimulus Check Will Be Arriving In May Or Early June

by Mike Holman

As a result of the 2009 federal stimulus package (otherwise known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) there will be a $250 stimulus check paid out to all recipients of SSI (Supplemental Security Income).

The Social Security Administration is planning to send out these payments during the month of May so if you are eligible for this payment then expect to get the $250 sometime in May or in the first week of June. Please don’t call the SSA unless you haven’t received your check by June 4.

The maximum amount per individual is $250 even if that person qualifies under different programs (Social Security, veterans’ compensation, veterans pension payments or railroad retirement benefits). Couples can qualify to receive up to $500 ($250 each).

To qualify for the SSI one time payment of $250 you must have been receiving SSI payments during the period of November, 2008 and January, 2009.

You will still get your regular SSI payment as always.

Yes to both questions. A child receiving SSI on their own disability will receive it and any adult receiving SSi or SSDI on their own record will receive it. A child collecting on their parents SSDI will not receive it.

When will the Stimulus Checks start going out to people? Will people with direct deposit get them first, and with no direct deposit, will they go out by the last 2 digits of the SS number?

I lost my job in October. $250 just showed up in my checking account this week. I am assuming that it is the aforementioned stimulus check, and I can only assume that I recieved it because I have been the recipient of unemployment benefits. While unemployment does not pay my bills and I am grateful for a few extra bucksI really shouldn’t be getting this money. Thank God, I returned to work (a temporary job) this week. I am buying my home and so far my husband and I have not missed a payment. I can’t say the same for some of my credit cards. Anyway, it seems to me that the recipients should be better screened. I am grateful for the money, but not really in dire need. I am sure that there are people in my area who could use a hot meal. Way to go BIG GOVERNMENT!

I agree there are alot of people out here that are usng the system, I my self have Lupus, I cant go out in the sun, and I cant sweat, which really sucks because I have a garden I miss very much, and I’m a people person also, and cant get out to visit, but as far as the workers not receiving a stimulus check well think again there is an amount on most taxpayers check stubs it’s called Tax Credit and how I know this, my B/F has it on his in the amount of 35.00 every two weeks that he gets payed which means by the end of the year he will have received 840.00 in tax credit, so in the long run they are getting theirs, and YOU want to have a fit over us getting 250.00???
I guess if you were working you would have already have known about the tax credit, then wouldn’t embarrass yourself with pittiful whinning….

when can i find out when exactly when my daughter will be receiving the $250.00 stimulus

12 Anita Mann

I was wondering how the payment are being handed out. Last year when we was getting a Stimulus check, we knew that the last two digits of our socail determained when we was go to recieve our payment. Now it’s anytime before June 4th. thats pretty open. What method are they using this time to pass it out.

13 Michele

My husband got his 250 last week but our daughter, who gets SSI and SSDI, hasn’t gotten hers yet. But her notification was sent out to us a week after my husband’s so I assume it’s based on when you got your notification that you would be receiving this money.

14 Becky

I was told it’s the same method as last year, they go by your last 2 digits of your social #, I just received mine, so be patient it will come.
Good luck all.

I am on Social Security Disability, I have not received a 250.00 stimulius, I am under the impression, that I should have received one by now. I can’t find my letter with the telephone # on it to call, to find out why I haven’t received it. The IRS, states that I do not owe them any money. Can you let me know about my check.
