What is the Status of My Stimulus Check from the IRS?

Are you trying to check the status of your stimulus check from the IRS?  Here is a way that you can check on the status of your Economic Impact Payment.

This link will give you information about:

  • Your payment status
  • Your payment type
  • Whether the IRS needs more information from you, including bank account information

You may need:

  • Your 2019 return, if filed, and
  • Your 2018 return

Data is updated once per day overnight, so there’s no need to check back more than once per day.

You’ll notice on this page, several answers to questions you may have.  When you’re ready to move forward, simply click, “Get My Payment.”  This will take you to the next page showing that this is for “Authorized Use Only.”  Simply click, “OK.”

On the “Get My Payment” screen, you will be able to search the IRS records and the status of your stimulus check by entering your Social Security Number.
