ORLANDO, Fla. – The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the third coronavirus relief bill since the coronavirus pandemic struck a year ago, was signed into law last week, and the IRS began processing and depositing direct payments on Friday, leaving many to ask, “When will I get my money?”
The Internal Revenue Service is once again providing a Get My Payment tool for Americans to track the status of their payments.
Officials said those with direct deposit set up with the IRS will receive their payments first.
After that, the IRS will mail paper checks and pre-paid debit cards to everyone else who qualifies.

President Biden signed the $1.9 trillion relief package into law, saying the money will help defeat the virus, nurse the economy back to health and deliver direct aid to Americans struggling to make ends meet.
