As you have probably heard by now, recipients under the various Social Security Programs (Retirement, Rail Road, SSI, SSDI), will receive one-time payments of $250.  The Social Security Administration will send these payments to you in the same form that you receive your regular payment.  For example, if your Social Security is direct deposited into your bank account, then the stimulus payment will be direct deposited, too. 

Social Security will not be calling you or emailing you looking for personal information.  If anyone does call or email you concerning the stimulus payment, they are scammers.  Do not give them any personal information.
