I'm very grateful to have been in the first wave of stimulus check recipients. Or, rather, my credit card companies are very grateful that I was. My husband, however, wasn't so fortunate, so it's a waiting game for us still.

If you haven't received your check yet and would like to proactively follow the status of your money, the IRS has a tracking tool you can obsessively click. It has instructions in case you didn't file, and for those of you can:

  • Check your payment status
  • Confirm your payment type: direct deposit or check.
  • Enter your bank account information for direct deposit if we don't have your direct deposit information and we haven't sent your payment yet

Good luck to you. I hope you are yours get your money asap.
