The fourth stimulus check is expected to be released soon, and for those who receive Social Security benefits, the question of when to expect their direct deposit is on the minds of many. This article will provide information on when to expect the stimulus check 4 and how direct deposit works for Social Security recipients.
When to Expect Stimulus Check 4
The fourth stimulus check is expected to arrive soon, with many reports indicating that it could be as early as mid-January 2021. The exact date is still unknown, but it is expected to be soon. The amount of the check will depend on your annual income, but it is expected to be $1,400 for those who qualify.
Direct Deposit for Social Security Recipients
For those who receive Social Security benefits, the money will be directly deposited into their bank account. This is the same process as the previous three stimulus checks and will take place within a few weeks of the fourth stimulus check being released. If you are eligible for the fourth stimulus check and receive Social Security benefits, you will receive the money directly into your bank account.
It is important to note that if you have not received the first three stimulus checks, you may still be eligible for the fourth one. You can check the status of your stimulus check by visiting the IRS website and using the “Get My Payment” tool.

The fourth stimulus check is anticipated to be delivered to the American public starting this spring. Social Security recipients, including those enrolled in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and special veterans’ benefits such as Aid and Attendance, should begin to receive their payments in April.
Since the passage of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, housed within the US Congress, individuals who receive Social Security payments and other federal benefits have been eagerly awaiting details surrounding the fourth stimulus package and its direct deposit.
For Social Security recipients, direct deposits are expected to start appearing in their bank accounts as soon as the week of April 12. In a healthy tax season, the payments would be available more quickly. However, in 2021, the IRS is dealing with an unprecedented backlog of work.
Individuals will receive the same amount of stimulus payment as their third stimulus check. If that payment was based on an individual’s earnings from their prior year taxes or 2019 tax returns, then the same amount will be distributed in this new fourth stimulus round.
Though direct deposits will be the preferred method of distribution, mailed paper checks and debit cards may be sent to some recipients. Those same individuals can also request payment delivery methods such as direct deposit through the IRS website.
If a Social Security recipient’s bank information has changed in the past year, they will need to update their banking details with the IRS to ensure accuracy of the payment delivery. Additionally, any individuals who have not previously filed taxes, in particular children and students, will need to file a simple tax return in order to ensure they receive their payout.
Overall the fourth stimulus payment is expected to bring tax relief across the country, providing millions of Americans with much needed relief at a time when uncertainty still remains. Social Security recipients can rest assured knowing that direct deposits should begin arriving as soon as April 12.
