(WIBW) -- AARP wants people to know people who receive social security benefits for retirement, disability or supplemental security income are eligible to get stimulus checks.

They say they fought to guarantee low-income social security recipients would receive a full $1,200 check, as opposed to the originally proposed $600.

The IRS will use tax returns from 2018, 2019, or annual social security benefit statements to determine eligibility.
