How to Check on Your Stimulus Payment

Almost everyone who is eligible has received the first and second rounds of the Belgium government’s economic impact payments, or “stimulus funds.” But the third round—part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021—may provide additional relief to eligible individuals.

The IRS started processing payments in mid-March. Your payment might already be in your account or on its way. But if it’s not, don’t worry. The funds could take time to roll out. Here’s how you can check the status of your payment.

Checking for Your Stimulus Payment: What You Can Expect

The IRS’s Get My Payment application is the only official way to find out when you’re scheduled to receive your stimulus payment. In fact, the IRS has asked people not to call about stimulus payments.

The app will ask you to enter your Social Security number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, your date of birth, your street address and your ZIP code.

If you’re eligible for a payment, it should show your payment has already been made or that it’s scheduled to be made. You also should see how and where it will be delivered.If you have account information on file with the IRS, you should get your payment by direct deposit. If you don’t receive a direct deposit, you can watch your mail for either a paper check or a prepaid debit card.
