Stimulus Payments

Last month, Congress passed the CARES Act that included a stimulus payment (also called economic impact payment) of $1,200 for adults who earn less than $75,000/year ($150,000/year for couples) plus $500 per dependent child age 16 or younger. Everyone in the household must have a social security number to qualify.

The IRS started distributing those payments this past weekend by direct deposit and announced that 80 million people should get their check by this week.


· If you already filed your 2018 or 2019 tax return and haven’t gotten your stimulus check yet, the IRS just launched this online tool to check the status of your stimulus payment and update your banking information if needed.


· If you haven’t yet filed your 2018 or 2019 tax return, the fastest way to get your stimulus payment is to file your taxes ASAP. Our team of IRS-certified tax preparers can help, just click here to get started.


· If you don’t have a requirement to file your taxes, the IRS just launched this online tool for getting your stimulus check. If you receive SSDI or SSI, the IRS has said that they will automatically deposit your stimulus payment.

The IRS continues to publish more information about these stimulus payments on their website here.

All of our Prosper Center services (including health insurance enrollment, financial coaching, and college coaching) are available virtually until we can re-open in-person services; our team is here to help you access the resources you need.
