HSA Coronavirus Updates COVID-19 Relief Payments

Did not register for your stimulus check? Non-tax filers can register by November 21, 2020 (11/21/2020)

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is issuing stimulus payments to eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and for most older adults and retirees. Stimulus payments are as much as $1,200 per individual or head of household filer and $2,400 per married couple filing jointly. The IRS will automatically issue your payment using whatever payment method you provided in your 2018 or 2019 tax filing.

Did not file a 2019 tax return?

"Non-filers" who earned no income or too little to file tax returns are still entitled to a stimulus payment. If you are a non-filer who has not yet registered for the stimulus payment, you have until 11/21/2020 to register on the IRS website

For assistance, you can make an appointment with Smart Money Coaching, a free financial coaching program, either online or by calling (877)-256-0073.  If you are an older adult or an adult with a disability, please call (415) 865-5652.

HSA benefit recipients should note the following: 

  • The federal stimulus payment does NOT count towards your total income. This means it will NOT impact your eligibility for benefits.
  • The HSA CAAP program does NOT disperse stimulus payments to CAAP recipients. The IRS is responsible for issuing payments. 

View the IRS Economic Impact Payments page on how to provide or update your payment information and track your payment status.
