IRS Issues Third Round of EIPs

COVID-19; Programs and Resources

Last month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued the third round of Economic Income Payments (EIP). Most Social Security beneficiaries and Supplemental Security Income recipients should have received their EIPs by now. If a person is missing their first or second EIP, they need to file a 2020 tax return with the IRS and claim the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit as soon as possible. For more information, please visit the Social Security Administration's (SSA) press page​

AHCA/NCAL also put together a webinar recording on EIPs from the IRS and important facts for skilled nursing facilities, ICFs/IID, and assisted living centers to know the use of them. A variety of resources from the SSA and the National Center on Elder Law and Rights are available at the end of the webinar for additional information. If you have any questions regarding EIPs, please email​.
