Millions of second stimulus checks/payments have been sent

H&R Block sent millions of payments Jan. 4 to Jan. 6. Whether you are employed full time or part time, a gig worker, unemployed, or retired, you are likely to have already received a second stimulus check or payment.

How much money will I receive?

  • The starting amount is $600 per person and $600 for children under age 17. However, the amount varies based on the income in your household, the number of children under age 17, and your filing status.

  • Our stimulus check calculator can help you estimate how much you may receive!

How and when will I get paid?

  • The IRS shared that most people received a direct deposit. If not, paper checks or U.S. Treasury debit cards will be issued by the end of January.

  • We sent millions of stimulus payments to customers, Jan. 4-6. If you still have not received your money, please call us at 800-HRBLOCK so we can look into your specific case.

Can I update my information with the IRS?

  • The IRS Get My Payment tool is now available to check your status, but the tool is not accepting any updates. Find the latest on how to check on your stimulus and other related stimulus payment information.

Will second stimulus payments also be placed on my Emerald Card?

  • We deposited stimulus payments onto our Emerald Prepaid Mastercard® on January 4-6. If you still have not received your stimulus money, please contact us on our dedicated Emerald Card customer support line at 866-353-1266. Get details about second stimulus on your Emerald Card.
