At the time of writing this, more than 130 million Americans had received their $1,200 stimulus checks to help them tide over their financial problems during this crisis. However, persons who are receiving disability and other benefits by the Social Security Administration may find that their checks have been delayed.
Logically speaking, the $1,200 check should first benefit persons receiving federal benefits. For example, persons who are already on Supplemental Security Income benefits or are currently receiving Social Security disability benefits are much more likely to be facing the kind of serious financial challenges that can make it hard to even take care of basic needs, like food.
These persons should have been getting the checks the quickest. If you are a disability beneficiary who is still waiting for his or her stimulus check, it’s very likely on its way. However, there may be a delay.
