An estimated 90 million people have already received their portion of the third round of stimulus checks approved as part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The vast majority of those checks were sent out Wednesday morning as the IRS finalized that date as when the payments would be made for the first wave of checks.
However, not everyone has received their $1,400 per-person checks. There are several factors that could be causing a delay in payment processing. If you are unsure of when you can expect to receive your check, the IRS "Get My Payment" tool is available to give you an estimate. It can also tell you some of the issues that need to be resolved before you can receive your check.
