Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan. It became law. The plan says that most Americans will get $1,400 in stimulus checks. The money was meant to help people in the United States who lost their jobs because of COVID-19 lockdowns. It was the third payment, and most people in the United States were able to get it.
People Who Died in 2021 Are Also Eligible for a $1,400 Stimulus Payment
It doesn’t matter if a person didn’t get the money last year. He doesn’t have to be alive when he claims the money later. A letter from the IRS to taxpayers made it very clear. In 2021, it said that the families of people who died and didn’t get the full amount of the stimulus payment could claim the rest of the money on their taxes.
The Person Must Meet All of the Requirements to Be Able to Get Stimulus Checks
This month, the IRS sent out an advisory to taxpayers. It was very clear to the IRS that the families of people who died in 2021 and didn’t get the full Economic Impact Payment last year can still get the money. However, the person must be able to get the stimulus check in the first place before they can get it.
People Who Died Before 2021 Can’t Get Stimulus Money
It may be possible for people who died in the years from 2021 to 2022 but didn’t get the full amount under the third Economic Impact Payment to get the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit. However, the person must meet the requirements in order to get the payment in the first place. Before anyone died before January 1, 2021, the IRS made it very clear that no one can get the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit.

If the person is married, there are other problems, as well. As long as the spouse died before 2021, he will have to pay back the credit. This is for people who make less than $75,000. Married couples who filed jointly and made less than $150,000 also got the full payment.
