If you receive SSI and don't file taxes, you'll receive your Stimulus check ($1200) automatically.  However, if you receive SSI, don't file taxes, and also have a dependent qualifying child under age 17, you should use the IRS Non Filer tool through the end of April to let the IRS know that you should also get $500 per qualifying child. If you don't use the Non Filer tool to tell the IRS about your qualifying dependent children under 17 before the end of April, you will have to file taxes in 2020 and wait to get the $500 per child stimulus money.
