The IRS is sending out catch-up economic impact payment checks to roughly 50,000 people.

This after an error occurred in the rush to send out stimulus payments earlier this year.

The IRS says 50,000 individuals had their part of the economic impact payment diverted to pay their spouse’s past-due child support.

The agency identified the error and is set to issue the catch-up payments in early-to-mid-September.

Affected individuals don't have to do anything to get the money.

The IRS will issue the missing portion of the EIP automatically.
