Newly passed legislation includes another round of stimulus payments for qualifying individuals. 1st Advantage is processing these payments within minutes of receiving them through an automated process.  There is no need to call as we do not have access to any information on when your payment will arrive, how much it will be, or into what bank account it will be deposited. Our role only includes processing and posting these payments once they are received from the IRS.

The IRS Get My Payment page allows you to check the status of your payment and update any information the IRS needs from you. To check the status of your Economic Impact Payment, click here.

The IRS determines eligibility for direct payments based on 2019 tax returns. For specifics regarding your eligibility, refer to the IRS website.

The general guidelines state that individuals with adjusted gross incomes of up to $75,000 in 2019 will receive a $600 direct payment. Married couples who filed their tax return jointly and had adjusted gross incomes of less than $150,000 will be eligible. Individuals who are 17 and older and who can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return aren't eligible. Eligible retirees and recipients of Social Security, Railroad Retirement, disability or veterans' benefits, as well as taxpayers who have no income or too little income to file a tax return, are also eligible.

Payments are determined by the IRS based on previously reported income. For specifics regarding payment amounts refer to the IRS website for more information.

Individuals with adjusted gross incomes of up to $75,000 in 2019 will receive a direct payment of $600 per adult and $600 per child under the age of 17. This is $100 more per child than was allocated for in the CARES Act, but $600 less per adult. Married couples with adjusted gross incomes of less than $150,000 will receive $1,200 in direct relief and $600 per child under the age of 17. Individuals who file as “head of household” with adjusted gross incomes of up to $112,500 are eligible for a $600 payment and $600 per child under the age of 17. Mixed-immigration-status families, whose members include people with different citizenship or immigration statuses, will be eligible for payments based on IRS criteria. Those making more than the above amounts may qualify for a reduced payment, up to certain adjusted gross incomes.

You may or may not. The qualifications are different. You can visit the IRS website for updates and more information.

Taxpayers who have filed their 2019 federal tax returns don't have to apply for the Economic Impact Payment. For Social Security and Railroad Retirement recipients who aren't required to file a tax return, the IRS will use the information on their SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 to generate their payments using the payment instructions normally used to distribute their benefits.

Other individuals, such as low-income workers and certain veterans and individuals with disabilities who aren't required to file a tax return, are still eligible for Economic Impact Payments and can provide their income to the IRS via their website.

The IRS will use the financial institution and bank account information provided on the eligible recipient's most recent tax return to deposit their payment electronically. If you've already received a payment from the first round of stimulus checks, then the IRS will deliver this second payment in the same way. For Social Security and Railroad Retirement recipients, the IRS will use their direct deposit information from those payments. Recipients without direct deposit will be mailed a paper check.
Because financial institutions are not involved in sending the payments, we can’t know when individual members may receive a deposit. If you're receiving a paper check, your check should arrive by mail to your address listed on your tax return. You can also check the IRS website for updates.
