1. I think the thugs blocked that idea, but I'm not sure....
I think you have to have earned 5000.00 income.

7. Also, after applying multiple times,,, use the TINIEST font on your computer
and it will drive them bonkers, which they deserve.

8. Hahahahaha! Good idea.
On the back of my SS form for taxes it said if I got less than $25,000 in SSDI that I didn't have to file taxes. So I won't this year. It has to be actual "earned" income to count.

9. Would interest income count maybe that would work for my
situation on a disability pension but still no SSD.

10. Yes, you WILL get a rebate, but you need to file a tax return
Information for Recipients of Social Security Benefits


The IRS and Treasury will be working closely with the Social Security Administration to ensure that all eligible individuals know what to do to receive a stimulus payment.

Normally, certain Social Security payments are not subject to income tax. However, the economic stimulus law passed in February contains a special provision allowing Social Security recipients to count those benefits toward the qualifying income requirement of $3,000 and thereby qualify for the stimulus payment.

For purposes of meeting the qualifying income requirement, the following benefit needs to be reported in any combination on Line 20a of Form 1040 or Line 14a of the Form 1040A.

* Social Security benefits reported on the 2007 Form 1099-SSA, which people would have received in January 2008. People who do not have a Form 1099 may estimate their annual Social Security benefit by taking their monthly benefit, multiplying it by the number of months during the year they received the benefits, and entering the number on Line 20a of Form 1040 or Line 14a of the Form 1040A.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) does not count as qualifying income for the stimulus payment.
