Most Americans who earned under $75,000 in 2018 are set to receive their coronavirus relief checks very, very soon. The money, however little, can’t come quickly enough for some – especially those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

Here’s the scoop, via Yahoo Money:

An estimated 175 million Americans will get stimulus checks with the first payments going out this week or next, according to Larry Kudlow, director of the U.S. National Economic Council.

The payments, worth up to $1,200 plus additional $500 per child, are intended to help Americans financially weather job loss, reduced work hours, and other money challenges as large swaths of the country are shut down to curb the coronavirus outbreak.

The payments will be deposited directly into your bank account if you received your last tax refund or expect to receive this year’s refund that way. You’ll also be able to provide your banking details online once a portal is set up, according to the IRS.
