If you want to know if you will qualify for a new stimulus check, you should know that age is an important factor. To get started, anyone 65 years of age or older, completed at the end of 2019, is considered an older adult by the IRS, according to CNet.
Remember, though, that the most important thing to know if you’re getting a second stimulus check is your adjusted gross income (AGI). AGI is all the money you made in one year.
Therefore, if you have a pension or investments that are taxable, these will affect your adjusted gross income and therefore your eligibility for a stimulus check.
If a new stimulus check is approved, the requirements for receiving one for seniors will likely remain the same.
In addition, if you are a dependent of another person, you could receive an extra amount of dollars, since it is considering that all dependents, of any age, receive an additional amount, which did not happen with the first stimulus check. which was delivered only to dependents under 17 years of age.
