Eligible Americans have as little as three weeks to register for additional “surprise” stimulus check payments worth $1,400. The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) continues to issue “additional” payments to certain individuals.

According to the news outlet The Sun, people eligible for these additional payments are those to which stimulus checks were sent below the amount they actually should have received.

Although a third payment was automatically sent to individuals who did not file a return but received Social Security retirement, survivor or disability benefits, Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income, or Veterans Affairs benefits, many eligible recipients were left out.

For example, taxpayers who had lower incomes in 2020 than in 2019 qualify for these additional payments, also known as “plus up”. Also, those who claimed a dependent on their 2020 tax return also qualify for this surprise check in December.

You must hurry to claim the money

However, these people should hurry to register and claim their payment as the checks will end on December 31, which means there are only three weeks left to register. But how can you register? The easiest way to do this is to file a 2020 tax return.

Once the IRS has this information, it will be able to assess whether or not a taxpayer is eligible for the December surprise check equal to $1,400. Those who are eligible to receive the “plus-up” payments will be able to check the status of their payment using the IRS Get My Payment tool.
