Estimate Your 2020 Stimulus Check Payment

More than 90% of American adults qualify for a stimulus payment

Whether you are employed full time or part time, a gig worker, unemployed, or retired, you are likely eligible for a stimulus check or direct deposit.

How much do I get paid?

  • The starting amount is $1,200 per person but will go up or down based on your situation. Use our stimulus check estimator to find your amount.

  • If you filed your 2018 or 2019 taxes, you don’t need to do anything. The IRS will automatically direct deposit or mail payments to the account listed on your last tax return.

  • The government plans to issue payments over the next few months, starting in April.


What about my taxes?

  • The IRS will use your most current tax return to determine:

    •  Your annual income for your stimulus payout amount
    •  Your direct deposit information or mailing address

  • If you’ve already filed your 2019 taxes, you’re all set.

    Haven’t filed your 2019 taxes? That’s okay. But, if your information has changed since your last tax return, now would be a good time to file so the IRS has your most current info.
