Last night, my mother asked me if I knew why she hadn't received her stimulus check (part of the 2.2 trillion Covid-19 relief fund) yet.

So, if you filed your 2018 taxes and set up direct deposit, chances are you have received your money by now. The bill included $1200 for single filers, $2400 for married couples, plus $500 per child if you qualify.

Around 130 million payments have been sent via direct deposit and few have received paper checks. However; if you want avoid waiting for your paper check, you have until Wednesday, May 13 at 12 p.m. to sign up for direct deposit.

Checks will continue to be sent out through September of 2020.
