Now, I really hope you have been thinking about applying for Social Security benefits because this year’s stimulus checks came out on Monday and they are a little bigger than last year’s.
I’m not going to lie to you- the big S does not give these out for free. You will pay for them in your tax bracket but if you’re getting a lump sum this summer, it could be just what you need to take care of those bills that keep piling up or even start that business venture that has been lingering in the back of your mind. The big stimulus check should come as a relief to the millions who receive the smaller ones every month from SSI. We all know how these can make life easier…or at least we thought we did.
This year, SSI gave out an additional $250 just for applying, but the question on everyone’s mind is- will they do this again next year? That answer remains to be seen. They are asking for comments about their services so if you feel passionate about it, now would be the time to say something! You can go to their website and leave a comment or call them at 1-800-772-1213 to let them know what needs improvement.
To see how much your stimulus check will be, look at your tax records from last year. It should start with “M” and end with 2 digits. The stimulus check was deposited into each person’s account around June 5th of 2009. Keep in mind that after taxes, it usually amounts to about $600.
If you did not receive your stimulus check last year, find out why by calling the SSI office at 1-800-772-1213. Your stimulus check can be delayed because of many different reasons but mostly it’s because you could have applied for benefits before or there is something wrong with your file.
Now that you know what to expect from SSI, go ahead and apply! You will either get a letter in the mail or a phone call within 2 weeks of applying. If you want more information on how to apply, simply walk into any Social Security office in your area and they will help you fill out an application. As always, if you do not wish to go in person, you can apply online.
It’s nice to finally know how much your stimulus check is going to be, or if in fact, you are even getting one. For more information on applying for Social Security benefits, go to www.workforcesecurity.gov
