USA Coronavirus Bill's Stimulus Payments (Updated May 2021)


Recommended Posts

I just looked at the Social Security Website and found this:

If I live outside the United States and not in a U.S. Territory, how and when will I get my economic impact payment (EIP)?

Social Security beneficiaries with a foreign address whose monthly benefit is deposited in a foreign bank will receive their EIP by paper check in the mail, because the IRS does not deposit money into foreign accounts. The IRS anticipates it will start mailing these EIPs no later than July 24. Beneficiaries living abroad who receive their monthly benefit through a domestic bank should receive their EIP by direct deposit to that same account on or about July 24.

Those of us who are married to a Filipina (not a US citizen), and file a US return "married filing jointly" to the IRS, have apparently been excluded from this program anyway, regardless how you have been told you would still receive payment. It doesn't seem right, but there it is. Not everything in this life is fair.

I've been told that, but one of the members on here got theirs and the only difference is they live in the USA where she is a permanent resident.

She has a SSAN so qualifies, if ITIN only, screwed.

I live here in Cebu but my bank is in the US.  Don't believe the IRS will deposit money into a foreign bank.

Nope. But they will mail a check to the foreign address on the tax return.

$600.  Subject to $75k single / $150k joint income caps above which it phases out.  Includes children under 18 but not dependents over 18.

I hope U.S. expats are not excluded/don't have extra obstacles, but of course as with any bureaucracy, mileage may vary.

Let's keep the political discussions out of this thread. When it comes down to it, it's how much, who will get it, and when will you get it. That's what people really care about...

Nope, not excluded. Expat Lives Matter.

What is good news and applicable to some of us I'm sure:

If you are married to a foreign spouse with only a TIN and not a SSN then neither of you were  supposed to get the first stimulus check. They've changed that in the new bill and you can now retroactively get the first stimulus payment in addition to the new one if you find yourself in this circumstance.
