    Unless you receive social security that is correct.

    So you have just admitted to tax fraud.  Being paid "under the table" does not mean you "couldn't file."  The law requires you to file a tax return whenever you get paid for working, even if your employer does not report the payment to the IRS.  In order to get a stimulus check, you must obey the tax law and file a return reporting ALL your income.

    That's how it works, people who are on social security can get them too. The government will send you a direct deposit or check using the information from your Form SSA-1099 Social Security Benefit Statement or your Form RRB-1099 Social Security Equivalent Benefit Statement.
