Yes, if they filed a tax return this year or last year, or received a Form SSA-1099. Otherwise, they need to file a tax return.

Anyone who filed a tax return this year or last year. Individuals receive $1,200, married couples receive $2,400, and child dependents (under 17) receive $500.
There is no qualified income threshold or requirement to receive the rebate. However, the rebate phases out at a 5% rate above adjusted gross incomes of $75,000 for single filers, $112,500 for heads of household, and $150,000 for joint filers.
Our understanding is that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is sending out the rebates (via direct deposit or checks).
They do not need to claim their checks (unless they have not either filed a tax return this year or last year) - the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will send out rebates automatically to their direct deposit or to the address provided on the last tax return submitted.
Rebates sent via direct deposit will take a few weeks. Rebates sent via checks may take a few months.
No, rebates are not taxable.
You need to have filed either a 2018 tax return or a 2019 tax return. If you have not filed either, you will not be eligible. You can file a 2019 tax return now to claim the rebate.
Yes. Rebates will not be subject to garnishment, except if back child support is owed.
In this case, the taxpayer should file a 2019 tax return.
