Here’s When You’ll Get Your Coronavirus Relief Check

We now know when you can expect your coronavirus relief payment to arrive.

Direct deposit will start on April 9, a week sooner than Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin previously anticipated.

If you don’t have direct deposit on file, there will be an online portal where you can add your information. The IRS hasn’t set that up yet, but once it does, you’ll be able to access it here.

If you don’t provide direct deposit information, you may have to wait a while for your payment. We’ve listed a full payment schedule below, so keep reading.

A Treasury spokesperson told The Hill Thursday that 50 to 70 million people will get their payments by direct deposit before April 15, with “most” eligible Americans receiving their payments in the next three weeks.

A recap of how much money you’ll be getting:

  • If your adjusted gross income (AGI) on your last tax return was under $75,000, you’ll get $1,200.
  • If you filed jointly and your AGI is under $150,000, you’ll get $2,400.
  • If you filed as head of household and had an AGI under $112,500, you’ll get $1,200.
  • For every dependent age 16 or younger in your household, you’ll get $500. If you have adult dependents or students in college, you won’t get a payment for them.
  • If your most recent AGI was between $75,000 and $99,000, you’ll get less than $1,200, but you’ll still get a payment. The same goes joint filers with an AGI between $150,000 and $198,000 and heads of households with an AGI between $112,500 and $146,500—you’ll get less than a full payment, but you’ll get something. You can use a relief check calculator like this one to find out how much.
  • If you had an AGI of more than $99,000 (single people), $198,000 (joint filers) or $146,500 (head of household), you won’t get anything.
