FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When will I receive my Economic Impact Payment ("stimulus check")?
The payments, also referred to as stimulus checks or payments, have already begun to be distributed. The payments are automatic for taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees.
If you have any questions regarding your stimulus payment, the best source of information is the official IRS website at www.irs.gov/coronavirus.
They have also created a Get My Payment website where you can:
- Check your payment status.
- Confirm your payment type: direct deposit or check.
- Enter your bank account information for direct deposit if the IRS doesn’t have your direct deposit information and they haven't sent your payment yet. You can also update your routing/account numbers if they have changed.
If you have moved since you last filed, you can notify the IRS to provide your new mailing address.
