Will I Get A CARES Relief Check If I Am Disabled?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Apr 09, 2020 | 0 Comments

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic that has shuttered so many businesses, Congress passed the CARES act. Among its provisions is one that will provide direct payments to most Americans. This apparently applies to


those persons who are receiving Social Security disability benefits, both SSDI and SSI. Initially, CARES required people who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019 to file one. Bowing to public pressure, the Trump administration dropped this requirement.

If You Get Your Check Via Direct Deposit, You're All Set

Since most Social Security disability beneficiaries use direct deposit each month, the treasury should be able to send the CARES relief checks the same way.  There is no telling when these checks might arrive. Optimistic projections say by the middle of April 2020.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
