Families that have at least one adult with an SSN and active work authorization can now receive a stimulus payment for all household members with an SSN. These families are entitled to receive the new stimulus payment, as well as the first round of stimulus. People who file taxes using an ITIN number are still not eligible for stimulus payments. For the most current information, including how to check the status of your payments, how to claim your stimulus payment, and how to get free help from IRS partners to file your taxes if you need to, visit IRS Economic Impact Payment website.
