ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — We're taking you In-Depth to look at what's happening with those stimulus checks.
Millions of Americans are still waiting for their latest check, more specifically, people who receive social security or disability. News10NBC has received a lot of calls about this.
We know you will get your payment the same way you would receive your benefits, so what if you get your benefits through a debit card?
We found a Tweet from Direct-Express, the company that operates many of those cards, and it claims most people will receive the money in their accounts within the next few weeks.
The IRS is issuing Economic Impact Payments – also known as stimulus payments – to eligible recipients over the next few weeks. For the most current information on individual stimulus payments, the IRS encourages using the Get My Payment portal https://t.co/TOTmp1fGcw pic.twitter.com/1Cae9AYt6K— Direct Express® card (@USDirectExpress) March 19, 2021
We also checked with the Internal Revenue Service, but it hasn't confirmed an official payment day. You can check the status of your check with the IRS "Get My Payment" tool.
