If you’re waiting for your stimulus payment to arrive in the mail — either as a paper check or a prepaid debit card — the US Postal Service has a free app that can notify you when it’s about to deliver your letter from the IRS.
But since then, the IRS said it has significantly improved the Get My Payment app to help you set up and track the date of your stimulus payment. 1. Head to the IRS’ Get My Payment page and tap the blue Get My Payment button to check the status of your economic impact payment. 2. On the next page about authorized use, tap OK. 3.
While most people will receive a paper check, the Treasury Department said 4 million people will get an Economic Impact Payment, or EIP, prepaid debit card instead (and as of the first week of June, it said these payments have been made).
Get My Payment will tell you how much money you qualify for, the status of the payment and any issues that might have delayed getting paid, which is done by check, prepaid debit card or direct deposit.
After using the IRS tracker, you could also sign up for a free service from the post office that tells you exactly when your stimulus check will arrive in the mail.
Use these free tools to check the status of your first stimulus check, if you haven’t received it.
