Track Your $1200 Coronavirus Stimulus Check Online Using This 'Get My Payment' Tool

On Monday afternoon, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, “If you do not receive them by Wednesday, you’ll be able to put in your direct deposit information, and within several days, we will automatically deposit the money into your account. We want to do as much of this electronically as we can.”

He was referring to the $1200 coronavirus stimulus checks, of course. While some Americans have already seen the cash in their accounts, plenty of others have not.

Here’s what to do if you’re in the latter category.

From Yahoo Money:

While some have received theirs already, those who are still waiting for one will soon be able to track it online. Americans will also be able to provide the Internal Revenue Service with their direct deposit information if it’s not on file with the agency.

The agency expects to release an online “Get My Payment” tool on its website by the end of the week that tracks the status of your stimulus check. The tool will let people follow the scheduled payment date for either a direct deposit or mailed check.

The tool will also allow people to provide their bank account details to get their payment by direct deposit versus waiting for a mailed check, which don’t go out until the end of April. If you filed a tax return in 2018 or 2019 but didn’t provide direct deposit information, you’ll be able to identify yourself, input that banking information, and receive the payment in several days in your account, according to Mnuchin.

And here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter…
