Stimulus Check Question: I’m interesting in applying for a stimulus check for my mother, who’s is 76yrs old and is currently on a fix income. So any money can help, What steps i need to do to obtain these funds?
Answer: The stimulus check isn’t something that you apply for, it is something that you either qualify for or you don’t. The 2009 stimulus check that were sent out last spring/summer were sent to those on social security (as of Jan 2009), military veterans and retired rail road workers. If your mother was in any of those categories, she should have received a stimulus check.
There are stipulations such as, if she was working (which may or may not apply to your mother) she would not get a $250 stimulus check, or else would have to pay it back, because she would be getting the higher amount tax credit taken out of each paycheck.
Going into 2010 there is possible word of a 2010 stimulus check again for those on social security, and possibly for the veterans. Those that are working are still getting the same tax credit on each paycheck to total $400-$600 over the coarse of the year.
