Check Your Stimulus Check Deposit Date With This Online Tool
It's stimmy season!
We've been in a pandemic so long we're really out here giving nicknames to the stimulus check. The stimmy. Have you gotten paid yet? The “Get My Payment” tool on the IRS website went live early yesterday and it's a great tool to track when you'll get your stimulus check.
President Joe Biden signed the new $1.9 trillion rescue package on Thursday last week. This provides payments to qualifying individuals of up to $1,400, with payments to a qualifying family of four of $5,600.

If you use the IRS website, you should see the scheduled deposit date for your check. Example: “We scheduled your payment to be deposited on March 17, 2021 to the bank account below.”
A note on the website says, “If you don’t see your payment credited to your account, check with your bank to verify they received it. We will mail you a letter with additional information on this payment.”
It is estimated that 85% of Americans will be eligible for the payments and the goal is to have millions of the payments distributed in the next few weeks. Some people have already seen the money hit their account, but for a lot of us, it's a waiting game.
But not the fun kind of waiting game. People who have provided bank information with the IRS will receive their payments direct deposit, while others will get paper checks or debit cards mailed to them.
You can check when you'll get your check here.
