Plus Up payments are additional stimulus payments issued to people who have previously received checks based on their 2019 tax returns.
If you receive Social Security, survivor benefits, Railroad Retirement payments, SSI, or veterans benefits and did not file a return, you will automatically receive a third payment.
This is also true for people who claimed a dependent who was elderly or disabled and the IRS was ignorant of it.
These stimulus cheques will be mailed through the end of December 2021.
You do not need to take any action in order to get the plus-up payment, but you must file your 2020 taxes.
The IRS will determine who is eligible for the Plus Up stimulus payment when they examine 2020 tax returns.
The IRS had until December 31 to make all of the payments under the American Rescue Plan, which was passed in March.
You have till the end of the year to file your taxes to be eligible.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, stimulus checks were distributed to citizens in the United States of America, with the federal government issuing three rounds of payments, which were then distributed by the IRS, which was in charge of sending out what some are referring to as a fourth stimulus check.
Plus-up payments have been made to persons who received a stimulus check that was less than they expected, and this procedure has been ongoing since the beginning of 2021.
According to the IRS, they could “automatically send a third payment to people who don’t file a return but receive Social Security retirement, survivor, or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Veterans Affairs benefits” who “didn’t file a return but receive Social Security retirement, survivor, or disability benefits (SSDI), Railroad Retirement benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or Veterans Affairs benefits.”
