Missing Dependents from Stimulus Payment Amount

Updated December 30th, 2020 at 11:20 AMThis is a developing story. Stay with igotmyrefund.com and it will be updated as more information is published about the unexpected amounts of the 2nd round of stimulus payments.

Do you have missing dependents from stimulus payment?

This story updates often with new information. Is the amount you expected to receive for the 2nd round of stimulus payment wrong? We are closely following the first batch of stimulus payments being direct deposited that started today. If you didn’t receive the entire amount you expected, you aren’t alone. Some people may have received a payment amount different that what they were expecting. We are seeing widespread reports of people who received a $600 direct deposit, but they were expecting more for dependents. In some cases, we have seen someone missing $2400 as a family of four. Getting a smaller than expected payment is throwing quite a few people for a loop. To read more about how much each person is eligible to receive, this is the details about the second stimulus payment.

Why is the amount of my stimulus less?

Right now, we are seeing a trend of missing amounts for dependents. While talking to our users, we are finding that a lot of these people have dependents who changed from the age of eligibility in the last 2 years. Let us know your situation below in the comments or on the live discussion on our home page igotmyrefund.com and maybe we can piece this together.

What to Do If You Haven’t Received Your Full 2nd Stimulus Check

Since direct deposits just starting hitting bank accounts last night, we haven’t seen any guidance yet from the IRS or the Department of Treasury regarding missing dependent stimulus amounts. We are following this story closely and will provide update as the day moves on.

    I was supposed to get $2400 and only receive $600. Huge blow to our life. This happened first round too. But received the dependents amount owed last time in August so I figured since I got multiple checks it might be the same this time but I really doubt it. It seems this so called “GLITCH” is affecting lots of ppl. More now than the last time and I hope they catch it and fix it soon. I don’t file taxes bc I don’t work. But this is a huge inconvenience for me and everyone else. I hope it gets fixed for everyone affected. I’m grateful for $600 but that’s not what I was told I was getting and expecting. The irs needs to get it together and fix everything for everyone!!

    My children are 4 and 11, and have always and only been claimed by me on my taxes. The first stimulus payment was correct and included my dependents. In the second round of stimulus, I only received $600; no payment for the dependents.

    So I woke up this morning to check my transcripts because I’m missing the payment for my dependents and guess what they have me marked as a single filer which I’m not and haven’t been for least 10 years why!? We were supposed to get 3000 we only received 1500 my transcripts said married yesterday today they state that I’m single, and wheres my dependents?

    I got 1500 was expecting 3000, my hubby owes cs I thought there was no garnishment! It came on a manually entered bank info. Last time I got it on my tt, this time it was sent to rushcard. Called the irs this morning and they say it’s all I get and the process is the same as last time so child support got the other half. Nothing on the offset line.
