How To Perform A Stimulus Test

Why We Are Getting Stimulus Check?

In the Get My Payment feature, you may now check the progress of your 2021 Economic Impact Payment.

All first and second Economic Impact Payments have been sent, and Get My Payment will no longer display them. If you did not received a first or second payment, or received less than the full amount, you may be eligible for the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit and may need to submit a 2020 tax return, even if you don’t ordinarily file.

Receive My Payment receives updates once a day, generally around night. Do not contact the Internal Revenue Service. Our customer service representatives do not have any additional information than what is available on

Get My Payment no longer has access to previous payment information. Check the status of your first and second payments.

When Will Your 2021 Payment Be Sent?

The first payment will be made via direct deposit, which some recipients have already begun to receive as early as March 12.

Messages of Status

When you utilise Get My Payment, you’ll get one of these messages:

Status of Payment:

A payment has been processed, a payment date has been set, and payment is due via direct deposit or mail. You may receive an EIP Card or a check in the mail.


You’re eligible, but your payment hasn’t been completed yet, and no payment date has been set.

The amount of your 2021 Economic Impact Payment will not be displayed.

Payment Status Not Available: Your payment hasn’t been processed yet, or you aren’t qualified for one.

More information is required: Because the Postal Service was unable to deliver your payment, it was returned to the IRS. Only those who get this mail will be able to utilise the tool to provide us with bank account details.

Status of the First and Second Payments

Get My Payment no longer shows the first and second Economic Impact Payments.

View or establish an online account to learn more about these payments, and keep an eye out for IRS Notices 1444 and 1444-B in the mail.

Have you missed out on the first and second payments? Take advantage of the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit.

If you didn’t receive the entire amount of the first or second payment you were entitled to, you may be eligible for the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit and may need to file a 2020 tax return even if you aren’t required to. The third payment will not be taken into account when calculating the Recovery Rebate Credit for 2020.
