The fourth batch of $1,400 stimulus payments was mailed out, with the majority of the money going to Social Security claimants. On Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service said that new stimulus checks totaling more than $36 billion had been issued. On Friday, April 2nd, those payments began to be finalized, and the official payment date was April 7th.
With the addition of this batch, the total number of payments issued has surpassed 156 million, or $372 billion. In March, Congress authorized the $1,400 stimulus checks. If they fall below certain income thresholds and meet other criteria, they may be eligible for payments of up to $1,400 per person, plus $1,400 per qualified dependent.
The IRS is set to resume payment processing for veteran beneficiaries.
Last year, Social Security recipients who did not look into their 2019 or 2020 tax returns or use the IRS non-filer tool received more than 19 million benefits totaling more than $26 billion. Social Security retirement, survivor, and disability payments recipients have been included. In addition, over 3 million payments totaling more than $5 billion were made to recipients of Supplemental Security Income. The Railroad Retirement Board paid out approximately 85,000 installments totaling more than $119 million to its beneficiaries.
More than a million “plus-up” payments totaling more than $2 billion were included in the new supply for customers who are due more money now that their 2020 tax returns have been filed. The IRS anticipates that payments to Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who do not submit tax returns will start this week. The official payout date for payments sent online will be April 14th. Additional payments are expected as the IRS continues to process 2020 tax returns.
Those who the government did not previously have on its books would receive additional top-up payments and money. According to the tax authorities, the payments would also be sent on a weekly basis. According to the IRS, customers who are satisfied with their service do not need to take any action in order to get their stimulus checks. On the other hand, some persons may intend to file a tax return in order to claim the money they are entitled to.

Non-citizens’ eligibility and the $1,400 stimulus payout
The first stimulus payment under the CARES Act required a Social Security number. Other proposals would have extended eligibility to those who have an ITIN rather than a Social Security number because they are classified as a resident or nonresident alien, but this group was also excluded from the final bill, which authorized a second stimulus check in December. The proposed law expands the conditions for a third check to include all mixed-status families with at least one member who has a Social Security number.
