Second Round of Stimulus Checks Go Out Today
Still waiting on your third stimulus payment? The next round of stimulus checks is expected to start showing up in bank accounts today.
If you weren't one of the lucky 90 million people to get your direct deposit on the last round of payments, or the 150,000 people that got their check by mail, back on or around March 17, check your bank account today, March 24.
According to CBS News, the IRS says more deposits have landed in bank accounts, providing some much needed relief for those still waiting for their $14,000 relief checks.
Of course, not everyone is receiving their stimulus money through a direct deposit. Some are waiting on actual paper check to arrive via mail. For those expecting to receive a paper check in their mailbox, the Treasury Department is saying paper checks could still be a number of weeks away.
This third round of payments is part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that President Joe Biden signed on March 11, 2021.
Some folks, including those on Social Security and Disability, have been asking when they'll get their stimulus payment. The IRS has said it is working to get updated information from those receiving benefits from the Social Security Administration, Railroad Retirement Board, and Veterans Administration.
Also be looking for a pre-paid debt card arriving in the mail. This confused a lot of people on the first stimulus payment, and folks ended up throwing those cards away assuming that they were junk mail.
If you haven't received your check via direct deposit or mail, you can track your payment by going to the Get My Payment tool on the IRS website.
