Some people can use the IRS non-filer site to sign up for their stimulus check. For example, if you have no income and do not receive Social Security, SSI, Railroad Retirement, or veterans benefits, the non-filer site is a good choice for you. If you are very low income, do not need to file taxes, and are not eligible for any tax credits, you can also use the IRS non-filer site. To learn more about whether you should file taxes to get additional money or should use the non-filer website visit GetMyPaymentIL.org/Tax-Help.

Non-tax filers can sign up for stimulus checks at IRS.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here. Before you go to the website, have the following items ready.
