Where can I cash my stimulus check payment for free?
There are two principal ways to receive your stimulus check, it can be deposited directly into your bank account, or you can receive a paper check in the mail.
There are two main options available to recipients of the paper stimulus check. It can be cashed immediately or deposited via an existing bank account.
Many of the 88 million recipients of the IRS Economic Impact Payment may not possess an active bank account but alternatives are available with even the possibility to avoid a check cashing fee.
PayPal is temporarily waiving its check cashing fee which is normally 1% for government checks. This fee waiver is for stimulus checks, tax refunds and pre-printed payroll checks. Each check has to be $5,000 or less to cash with PayPal.
Cashing your check with PayPal can be the easiest option as you can cash it from home. You only need a smartphone with a functioning camera and the PayPal app (iOS or Android).
