When Will I Receive My Stimulus Check in 2020 [Coronavirus Updates]?

receive-government-stimulus-checkThe U.S. government has been sending out stimulus checks and direct deposits since mid-April 2020 due to the Coronavirus [Covid-19].

The deal for stimulus checks has been passed by the Congress and signed by the President.

So, when will you receive your 2020 stimulus payment?

It depends on whether you have direct deposit setup for your stimulus payment on file with the IRS. And, if you’ll be receiving a check, it will depend on your latest reported income. See more specifics below and get your Coronavirus protective gear here.

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

And, after reviewing this summary of the Heroes Act, it appears that a second stimulus payment may be coming your way too.  The Senate will reconvene on July 20th to further discuss this second payment, which Trump suggests will be very generous.





A brief history: With the US economy being hammered by the spreading coronavirus, serious discussions began in early March about providing a 2020 stimulus check to every American. The initial considerations were to give every American a $1,000 check (or more) within two weeks.

The government began targeting a date of April 6th to send this first stimulus check. Then, quite possibly, deliver a second $1000 check to follow on May 18th, 2020.

So what materialized from these initial meetings?

Update: The congress passed and the President signed the deal which will provide every American earning under $75,000 a 2020 stimulus check in the amount of $1,200.  See here for 2020 stimulus check FAQs

Web Portal for Direct Deposit of 2020 Stimulus Check [Latest Updates]

direct deposit stimulus checksIs there a web portal to report your direct deposit information so that you receive your 2020 stimulus check quickly?

There is a web portal to submit your direct deposit information to the IRS and, if you did not get it set up in time for the first stimulus check, you may want to setup direct deposit for the second stimulus payment, which will happen if the Heroes Act (read summary) or an equivalent passes the Senate, who will begin discussions anew on July 20th, 2020.

It might not be surprising that many people are confused as to whether their 2020 stimulus check will be direct deposited or if they will be receiving a check.

One of the reasons for this is that there are actually two web portals (discussed below) which can be very confusing.

Where-the-Crawdads-Sing-Book-ReviewWhere the Crawdads Sing has kept its place on the bestseller list for a long time. I didn’t want to read it but it wouldn’t go away. Every week, it’s there again – inescapable.

Why didn’t I want to read it?

As I viewed the Amazon page for the book, I found three compelling reasons to NOT READ Where the Crawdads Sing:

(1) It was a pick of the Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club — what is this?  I like Reese, but seriously, does every celebrity have to have a book club?
