When will I receive my US coronavirus stimulus check?
The Internal Revenue Service have already deposited 88 million coronavirus stimulus checks into applicants' accounts. So when can you expect yours?
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have already started depositing the first wave of coronavirus stimulus checks to the accounts of those out-of-work Americans who have filed a claim.
If you are reading this and still haven’t received the money it’s because it's going to take the IRS some time to get through all of the deposits. The first payments were made on 11 April and by Friday 1 May, 88 million Americans had received their payment.
#IRS deposited the first Economic Impact Payments into taxpayers’ bank accounts today. We know many people are anxious to get their payments; we’ll continue issuing them as fast as we can.

Stimulus checks in the mail
The IRS are now starting to mail paper checks to households, at around five million per week, with the households with the lowest adjusted gross incomes getting their checks first. In total it could take up to 20 week to mail all the checks, meaning some people may not receive their check until August.
Who is entitled to the stimulus check?
The IRS has said that eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns in for 2018 or 2019, made less than $75,000 and registered for direct deposit will automatically receive a stimulus payment of up to $1,200. Married couples that file jointly and made less than $150,000 will get $2,400, plus $500 for each qualifying child.
