Did you know that millions of eligible people could miss out on their Economic Impact Payments (EIP) – commonly called “stimulus checks” – because they have to file an online form with the IRS to get it? While most people get their payments automatically after filing a tax return (or based on participation in certain federally administered programs), this group of “non-filers” must take action to get their money (worth $1,200 for adults and $500 for qualifying children).

Eligible individuals have until November 21st to file for their EIP this year, so there's a lot of work to do to get the word out. (People who miss this deadline can also file a 2020 tax return next year to receive the payment in 2021.)

Will you join efforts to help leverage the estimated $12 billion EIPs available for 12 million eligible people?
