Here’s who doesn't get the $600 stimulus check
Congress has passed a COVID-19 bill that provides for a second round of stimulus checks for millions of Americans as early as next week - provided President Trump has not vetoed it.
But not everyone is entitled to these direct payments.
For example, many students do not qualify. Neither do immigrants who don't have a social security number. Some elderly and disabled people, as well as high earners, do not receive a check either.

The payments, which aim to give Americans a quick cash infusion, will be distributed when Trump signs the bill in federal law. That routine signing was changed late Tuesday when the president criticized the bill and asked Congress to increase stimulus checks from $ 600 to $ 2,000, despite no longer threatening to veto it.
COVID-19 Aid Package: $ 600 Stimulus Checks, $ 300 Federal Unemployment Benefit Bonus Under New Contract
Americans are still facing an aid slump: even with the COVID-19 aid package, unemployment benefits could be delayed by millions
Here's who's left out once the checks come in:
Stimulus payments are not taxed - and you may be eligible to collect additional stimulus money.
If your income is too high, you will not receive a check. Payments for Americans will expire at income thresholds based on their tax returns for 2019.
For example, individuals earning up to $ 75,000 and couples earning less than $ 150,000 will receive the full one-time amount of $ 600, which is half the value of the first round of $ 1,200 checks made in March according to CARES Act. The amount decreases by $ 5 for every $ 100 of income above these income thresholds. It will fully expire at $ 87,000 for individuals and $ 174,000 for couples.
If you claimed householder status on your tax return, you will not receive payment if your gross adjusted income exceeds $ 124,500.
Unemployed high earners
Eligibility for stimulus review is determined by tax returns for 2019, a change from the first round of payments based on tax returns for 2018 or 2019. That could change how much you get and whether you get a second check. If you made more than $ 87,000 in the last year but are unemployed in 2020, you are not eligible for any payment.
Students aged 17 and over are not eligible for a stimulus test if their parents or guardians claim they are dependent. That means the incentive excludes millions of high school and college aged Americans.
Also, your parents will not receive the $ 600 per child payment offered by the new stimulus package. This only applies to children up to the age of 16. There is no limit to the number of children a household can have, so a family of four would receive up to $ 2,400.
Some elderly and disabled adults
Adult relatives are not entitled to a check. This means that an elderly parent or family member living in the care of an adult child who is considered a dependent will not receive direct payment.
Individuals without a social security number, usually unauthorized immigrants, are not eligible.
Some immigrants will qualify for a stimulus exam if they meet the eligibility criteria and have a valid social security number. Immigrants with green cards or H-1B and H-2A work visas can receive a check. Non-resident foreigners, contract workers, and immigrants in the country are illegally not eligible.
Mixed status households or households in which one family member does not have a Social Security number but others are eligible for stimulus payments, an important change from the CARES Act. Under this legislation, households that had a single member without a social security number were excluded from receiving a payment.
However, the latest move would allow US citizens married to foreigners without a Social Security number to receive the aid.
To receive the additional $ 600 for a qualified child, they must also have a Social Security number.
