As of Friday evening, March 27th, the deal for stimulus checks has been passed by the Congress and signed by the President [see below for the latest].

Since the government began offering stimulus checks, many people have wondered, “When Will I Receive My Stimulus Check?”.  In this article, we will take a look at when you should receive your 2020 stimulus check from the government.
