“I HAVE CHILDREN”
There is only one way to get a payment for a child under 17: Parents must sign up or file taxes. There is no other way for a child to get a payment.
Note: If you are on Social Security, you have missed the deadline to sign up your children. You may need to wait til the end of 2020, file a tax return, then get child’s payment then.
“I HAVE NO INCOME”
People with $0 income still qualify if they sign up
