As a part of American Rescue plan, the U.S. Tresury has started sending out $1,400 payments, many residents are wondering when will it be their turn to receive their check or direct deposit.
According to the IRS will be sent to people who didn’t file a return but receive Social Security retirement survivor or SSDI, Reilroad retirement benefits, SSI or Veterans affairs benefits.
“For those who received EIP1 or EIP2 but don’t receive a payment via direct deposit, they will generally receive a check or, in some instances, a prepaid debit card (referred to as an “EIP Card). A payment will not be added to an existing EIP card mailed for the first or second round of stimulus payments,” the IRS says.
There’s not an official payment date but many recipients have report that they had already received the check this week.
No action is needed by most taxpayers to receive the payments, which will be automatic and similar to how people received their first and second round of economic impact payments in 2020.
