If You Don’t Receive Your Stimulus Check By March 24, Here’s What You Need To Do.

By now, millions of Americans have received their 3rd stimulus check but many are still waiting.

Well, we finally have an update and if you don’t receive your stimulus check via direct deposit by March 24, 2021, here’s what you need to do.

If You Don’t Receive Your Stimulus Check By March 24, Here’s What You Need To Do.

Yesterday the Treasury Department announced that the next batch of direct payments from the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package were sent this week.

Apparently, Americans who don’t receive a direct deposit by March 24 will get the money via a check or a prepaid debit card in the mail.

What does this mean for you?

It means more watching and waiting.

If you don’t receive it via direct deposit, you can expect your stimulus payment in the form of a check or debit card.

Now, I want to point out, last time this happened, people were accidentally throwing away their stimulus checks thinking it was spam mail so make sure you open and check every piece of mail.

For reference, the stimulus check should look something like this:

TREASURY DEPARTMENT

And the prepaid debit card with your stimulus loaded on it, should look something like this:

So, if you don’t receive it by March 24th just keep an eye on your mail.

Also, you can use the IRS Tool to track your payment. Make sure you input the information EXACTLY like your last tax filing so it will give you accurate results.
