Check the Status of Your Stimulus Payment

You can now check the status of your 2021 Economic Impact Payment in the Get My Payment tool.

All first and second Economic Impact Payments have been sent and will no longer appear in Get My Payment. If you didn’t get a first or second payment or got less than the full amounts, you may qualify for the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit and must file a 2020 tax return even if you don’t normally file.
