Email share
Social Security Stipends

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is encouraging eligible residents to use the option to receive their Social Security Stipends by mail. 

To receive their stipends by mail, recipients can send an email to with “SSA Stipend” in the subject line and provide the following information: 

  • Name
  • Last four digits of their Social Security number
  • Phone number
  • Correct address

The $500 payment will be issued to those Social Security recipients who are seniors or who are on disability. These funds are being made available from the American Rescue Plan Act State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, which allows for helping households respond to the negative economic impacts of the pandemic.
