I have not heard of that issue, but I will check with my contact at the IRS. In fact, many widows have received not only their own stimulus check, but one for their deceased spouse. Some checks have even been made payable to the name of the deceased, with the word “deceased” on the payee line! Of course the IRS has been demanding the return of payments to deceased persons.
It may be that they have suddenly started comparing the stimulus payouts based on tax returns with the SS “survivorship benefits” list. But that’s pretty sophisticated, and they are still rushing to get original payments out to many people.
Also, this is the month that many people who are paid via Social Security direct deposit are just now getting their benefits. It could be as simple as that, so check your direct deposit account where SS benefits are deposited. It may not come at the same time as your regular monthly benefit, but likely in June.
By the way, that website is useless for real information! And don’t try to call any numbers. That is useless, too~
In the meantime, I will ask about this issue — and will post an update if I get m ore information.
