Don't file taxes but want to get your stimulus check? The IRS released a new electronic portal to assist people on SSI and other non-filers in receiving their stimulus payments. Individuals can go to the portal, enter their personal information, and that information will be utilized to send them a stimulus payment: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here.
