Have you received your government stimulus check yet?

31

For tens of millions of U.S. residents who’ve set up direct deposit with the government, the IRS and Treasury Department this week began depositing the first stimulus checks of up to $1,200 per person into bank accounts. Up to 150 million Americans may qualify for the coronavirus payment, so it could take time for you to receive the money, depending on if you have direct deposit with the government, receive Social Security payments, or they mail the check to you.

These one-time stimulus payments are part of a $2 trillion 2020 coronavirus relief package intended to help you cover expenses and prod the troubled economy, as people lose their jobs and businesses shutter as a result of the pandemic.

Have you received your payment yet? Remember, it can take a moment for the poll to load, so please standby.

IRS.GOV shows that today ( 04/24/2020) they will mail out my check to me yet I got it two days ago.

As is typical, the main content of the daily poll, the actual poll, doesn’t open, but there is never a problem with ad after ad opening.

Sorry, Rick. Sometimes script blockers and ad blockers interfere with our polls since they are from a 3rd party site. If you have one of these try to turn it off and see if that fixes the issue. Good luck. —Diane at RVtravel.com

Received on 4-14. Gave 10% to our church and then some to Grandkids who had their work hours cut in half.

Not only have I not received my payment, when I go to the IRS website “Get My Payment” it has no info on me at all. But I’ll wait a few weeks before I get too concerned.

Still waiting (SSDI recipient) but give thanks every day for what I have and don’t miss what I do not.

The site says Wednesday. If they used 2017 I won’t get much because I made more than the limit with my leave being paid out at retirement. If 2018 I should get most of it.

We received our monies via direct deposit last Wednesday the 15th. We are retired, federal and state. I had just subnitted our tax return on the 4th, with a very small amount due us, giving our secondary bank info (less money to lose — yes, cautious, or maybe fully paranoid (?)). As we do not need the funds, we’re buying gift certificates for med workers and others on the front lines. Can’t help but wonder: With this mind-boggling amount of money, how will we ever pay back the Piper?

Its just a guess…

If you filed a paper return for 2019, it might be causing a delay.

If you filed electronically and included a routing/checking number, it went like clockwork.

If you have not filed for 2019, they may have to use the 2018 return and that might also be causing a delay. (They may be waiting to see if you return one for 2019 first).

So many variables that cannot be confirmed and no one is discussing.

There are those that have passed away that are getting checks and they do NOT have to be returned.

There are illegals getting a check.

There are also those that are missing out for other reasons.

We got ours the very first day. Full amount.

Cashing a check made out to someone else, including the deceased, is called forgery.

Undocumented immigrants, or illegals as you call them, contribute billions of dollars in federal taxes each year, and their income taxes and payroll tax dollars are keeping Social Security and Medicare solvent. They also pay billions in state and local taxes.

Out of work as of the end of February (laid off) but because they look at 2019 (or 2018) returns, I am not eligible. To top it off, I had taken a package from my company in Dec 2018 which was paid to me in Jan 2019. Went back to work in August at a much lower rate but unemployment looks at 4 of the last 5 quarters so I’m not eligible for that after working 7 months in that time but over 35 years straight before that (paying my taxes all along). And then there are people who’s income hasn’t been affected at all (both in the family still working) and they are getting a stimulus check. My rant is done.

This might be of little satisfaction for you, but if your income meets the qualifications in 2020 you will be able to claim the credit when you file your 2020 tax return. I understand it will not help your situation now, but might help next year.

Thank you. I have heard that and I’m hoping I won’t need it then but I could definitely use it now. I’d prefer the unemployment over a one (or two) time stimulus check but at this point I’d take either. Thanks again.

We haven’t received our check/ deposit yet.
IRS website says they don’t have the “information” needed. I guess IRS abt SS DON’T COMUNICATE. SURPRIZE, SURPRIZE.

The IRS gets the SSA info in mid February (electronically). There is some other issue that is affecting those of us on SS. (I worked for the IRS for 30 years). I suspect there was a programming issue. I’m sure they are working on it.

I received mine. I probably will keep mine. My youngest daughter has two sons under the age of 2. I will probably help her out. My wife is helping out our youngest daughter with her check.

Also add to my previous comment that we also filed an income tax return. That maybe the reason we got the money as soon as we did.

MY wife and I received our stimulus money by direct deposit on Wednesday, 4/14. We are social security recipients.

Pay it forward-with your COVID-19 Relief Checks!

We received a COVID relief check. We didn’t expect or need one to help us through this crisis. We are acutely aware that there are many who desperately need assistance and there are many who are systematically excluded from receiving aid. We have decided to share our COVID relief with friends and neighbors who are undocumented and excluded from federal aid. We have given to specific families and the Manaus Emergency Fund. https://www.manaus.org/

We hope you may consider joining us in ‘Paying it forward’ with your stimulus check if you received one.

Whether it is to our neighbors and residents and friends who can’t access public aid or another way you choose to share, we all need to do what we can. There are many ways to give: directly to those you know and who need help, through your place of worship, local emergency funds, regional and national charities. For many of us who are O.K., there are many who are not and could use our help!

My wife said she read somewhere that social security recipients are the last to receive the stimulus. May be true since our son and D-I-L got theirs and we have not.

I received my check but I think Bob is going to have to wait until he gets his SS check to get his since he didn’t file in 2018 or 2019.
