The Strengthen Social Security Coalition (SSSC) is a broad-based alliance of over 350 national and statewide organizations, including, among many others, women’s, labor, aging, disability, veterans, and civil rights groups representing over 50 million Americans. We are very thankful for new IRS guidance which excludes Social Security beneficiaries from filing a tax return to receive their stimulus payments.

Yet, the SSSC is still extremely concerned that many Americans will not receive the economic relief that they desperately need during this national crisis due to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidance which requires seniors, people with disabilities and veterans who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or veteran’s pensions to file a 2019 tax return to receive their $1,200 stimulus payment.
