WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRPROUD) – Did you receive the latest Stimulus Check?

Last week, over 2.3 million stimulus checks headed out to the public as part of the American Rescue Plan.

That means over 169 million payments have been made totaling almost $400 billion since the payments began going out 94 days ago.

The Internal Revenue Service is providing additional information about the latest payments including those with official payment dates through June 9:

  • In total, this includes more than 2.3 million payments with a value of more than $4.2 billion.
  • More than 900,000 payments, with a value of approximately $1.9 billion, went to eligible individuals for whom the IRS previously did not have information to issue an Economic Impact Payment but who recently filed a tax return.
  • This also includes additional ongoing supplemental payments for people who earlier this year received payments based on their 2019 tax returns but are eligible for a new or larger payment based on their recently processed 2020 tax returns. In the last two weeks, there were more than 1.1 million of these “plus-up” payments, with a value of more than $2.5 billion. In all, the IRS has made more than 8 million of these supplemental payments this year.
  • Overall, the last two weeks of payments contain more than 1.2 million direct deposit payments (with a total value over $2.2 billion) with the remainder as paper check payments.
