Stimulus checks still available for Americans: Check if you are eligible

Social Security Benefits After Government Shutdown

If you haven’t yet received your stimulus check, you may still be eligible to claim it. The deadline to file previous years’ tax returns has passed, but you can still file for the 2020 and 2021 tax years.

The amount of your stimulus check will depend on your income and filing status. For the third round of stimulus checks, you can receive up to $1,400 if your income is below $75,000 for individuals or $150,000 for couples. The amount starts to phase out at $80,000 and $160,000 respectively.

The requirements for the first two rounds of stimulus checks are similar, but the phase-out rules are different. To be eligible for any money under the first round worth $1,200, your income must have been under $99,000 and $198,000 respectively.

The Government Accountability Office estimates that there are between 9 million and 10 million Americans who are still owed stimulus checks. If you think you may be one of them, you can check the status of your payment on the IRS website.
