$ 500 for dependents $ 500 for dependents

The time to claim the payment of $ 500 for dependents is about to end

While talks over a new relief package are still on hold, almost all of the stimulus checks were sent and received. There are, however, some people have two days left to claim more money. Who are they?

Those who receive Social Security and other federal benefits and have children under the age of 17 are entitled to $ 500 in assistance.

These people must claim the money and provide the necessary information to collect it, before September 30 in the Non-filers tool that the IRS created since they did not file tax returns for 2018 or 2019.

"The IRS has extended the timelines to help children and adults obtain their Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) through the use of its Non-Filers Tool," the agency said in a statement.

Those unable to access Non-Filers can file a simplified paper return by following the procedures outlined in this FAQ on IRS.gov.

The IRS also warned that any beneficiary who does not meet the September 30 deadline will have to wait until next year to claim the payment as a credit on their 2020 federal tax return.


Those who have not received their check for $ 1,200 should receive it in the following days and no later than November 6, the agency said.

The agency is also trying to reach almost 9 million people who are not required to file taxes because they have very low income or no income, and who it has not been able to locate in time to be integrated into the calendar that ended on September 11.

These individuals can request support before October 15 to receive the funds this year, otherwise, they will also have to wait until 2021 to collect the money.
