Stimulus Payments are on their way
Apr 13, 2020
The Economic Impact Payment, or Stimulus Payment, is available and automatic for most taxpayers. The IRS is in the process of sending out stimulus checks as soon as possible. As long as you filed your taxes in either 2019 or 2018, no further action is needed, as the IRS will use direct deposit information available for those returns. Payments should also be automatic for most seniors and retirees. If no direct deposit information is available, a paper check will be mailed to you.
You’re eligible for a Stimulus Payment if you…
- are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who filed federal income taxes for 2018 or 2019 if you meet the income thresholds; or
- receive Social Security retirement, disability (SSDI), or survivor benefits; or
- receive Railroad Retirement benefits.
