IRS delivering fourth round of Economic Impact Payments to Veterans

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of the Treasury, and the Bureau of the Fiscal Service recently announced they are disbursing more than 25 million payments in the fourth batch of Economic Impact Payments from the American Rescue Plan. Many of these payments will go directly to Veterans and their beneficiaries.

 

How are payments determined?

The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) and the IRS worked together quickly to ensure that Veterans and their beneficiaries would receive their stimulus checks without additional paperwork or IRS filings.

VBA shared data with IRS on Veterans and their beneficiaries who receive Compensation and Pension (C&P) benefit payments who don’t normally file a tax return.

People who do not normally file a tax return and do not receive federal benefits may qualify for these Economic Impact Payments. This includes those experiencing homelessness, the rural poor, and others. Individuals who did not get a first or second round Economic Impact Payment or got less than the full amounts may be eligible for the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit, but they’ll need to file a 2020 tax return. See the special section on IRS.gov: Claiming the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit if you aren't required to file a tax return.

 

When can I expect my payment?

The IRS has already started processing these VA payment files. Because the majority of these payments are disbursed electronically, they should have been received on the official payment date of April 14. The IRS projects VA beneficiary payment information would be available in the Get My Payment tool.

No action is needed by most people to obtain this round of Economic Impact Payments. Additional information on Economic Impact Payments is available on IRS.gov.

 

Respectfully,

      FALLS CHURCH, Va.  –  Would you like to know more about your TRICARE health plan costs? Maybe you’d like to compare different plans to find the most cost-effective one. TRICARE’s online compare cost tool can help you look up your health plan’s costs and review multiple health plan costs at the same time.   “It’s important for TRICARE beneficiaries to have a fast, easy way to look up costs associated with their health plan,” said Robert Agnello, deputy chief of Digital Communications at the Defense Health Agency. “With the TRICARE Compare Cost Tool, you can look up costs for covered services, enrollment, and more. You can also see how your plan’s costs compare to other plans.”
