Having this information will allow you to take the necessary actions to be among the first to receive the stimulus check when it is approved.
The Senate is still debating whether to approve a second stimulus check, and if that finally happens, the IRS will likely use the same calculations and tools to send out the second stimulus check that it used to hand out the first one, including the IRS’ Get My Payment.
Thus, it can be inferred that the first three groups of people who will receive a second stimulus check would be the following:
The IRS sent a first batch of stimulus checks to people who had filed tax returns for 2018 or 2019 and had already given the IRS their information for direct deposit.
Following this model, the next stimulus payment could reach those who have already registered for direct deposit first, either as part of their 2019 tax return or earlier.
The next group to receive the money could be the Social Security beneficiaries who had the direct deposit information on file with the federal agencies.
Paper checks did not begin to be sent to households until about a week later, and were sent to people who had not signed up for direct deposit.
