TINIAN Mayor Edwin Aldan is encouraging residents who are receiving Supplemental Security Income or SSI benefits and who did not file income tax returns in 2018 or 2019, but have qualifying children under 17 years old to immediately visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here

Go to the “non-filers: Enter Your Information” section.

Aldan said SSI recipients need to act by May 5, Tuesday in order to receive additional financial assistance for their eligible children.

By taking the step to enter information on the IRA website, he said SSI recipients will receive $500 for each qualifying dependent child, in addition to the $1,200 individual payment, the mayor said.

In a statement, Aldan said SSI recipients with qualifying dependent children under 17 years old who do not provide their information on the IRA website before May 5 will only receive their $1,200 payment.

“There will be no additional payment for dependent children until they file a 2020 tax return,” he added.
