Here’s When You Can Expect Your $600 Stimulus Check

The second round of stimulus checks have been approved by Congress. Here’s when you’ll get yours.

After some debate and back and forth, the approved $600 stimulus checks are on their way to eligible Americans and U.S. residents. This information was confirmed by two tweets from Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury.

For those who have direct deposit set up with the IRS, checks may have already arrived. The IRS said in a statement: “Some Americans may see the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments in their accounts before the official payment date of Jan. 4, 2021.”

Like the previous stimulus check, the speed of its arrival will depend on how you filed your 2019 taxes. If you set up a direct deposit payment with the IRS, your stimulus check is likely on the way. If that information has changed, your check will likely experience a slow down.

If you don’t have a direct deposit set up with the IRS, your check will be mailed to you in the form of a debit card or a paper check, and it will take more time to get to you. These documents will begin to be mailed out to eligible recipients starting Wednesday. People will be able to track their checks through the “Get My Payment” tool on the IRS website.

In a case where you are eligible for a check and for some reason it still doesn’t get to you, the IRS explains that the check can be claimed on your 2020 tax return once you’re filing it in 2021.
