Talk to the IRS and ask your qestion. When the stimulus money for the retired went thru the last two years, people who would qualify but do not file taxes - were able to file just for the stimulus money.

I believe this will be the same for you. You can file a tax return to get the 8K - I believe that you will qualify for the full amount.

Good luck - here is the web site http://www.irs.gov/
