IRS, Treasury Disburse Another 37 Million Economic Impact Payments

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Bureau of the Fiscal Service recently announced they are disbursing approximately 37 million payments in the second batch of Economic Impact Payments from the American Rescue Plan. This brings the total disbursed payments from the American Rescue Plan to approximately 127 million payments worth approximately $325 billion.

As announced on March 12, Economic Impact Payments will continue to roll out in batches to millions of Americans in the coming weeks.

The second batch of payments includes direct deposits, as well as paper checks and debit cards being sent through the mail. Here is additional information on the second batch of payments:

  • Like the first batch of payments, the announced payments primarily were sent to eligible taxpayers who filed 2019 or 2020 returns. People who don’t typically file a return but who successfully used the Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov last year were sent payments in this batch.
  • In total, this second batch includes approximately 37 million payments, with a total value of nearly $83 billion.
  • As part of that, this batch of payments includes approximately 17 million direct deposit payments, with a total value of more than $38 billion. These payments began processing on Friday, March 19, and some Americans saw the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments in their accounts before the official payment date.
  • In addition, this batch of payments includes nearly 15 million paper checks (with a total value of nearly $34 billion) and approximately 5 million prepaid debit cards (with a total value of around $11 billion).
  • Paper checks and debit cards – known as EIP cards –began processing on Friday, March 19, and will continue to be sent by mail over the next few weeks.

As announced previously, the first batch of payments was mostly sent by direct deposit. Here is additional information on the first batch of payments:

  • The first batch of payments began processing on Friday, March 12, and some Americans saw the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments in their accounts before the official payment date of March 17.
  • The first batch of payments primarily was sent to eligible taxpayers who provided direct deposit information on their 2019 or 2020 returns, including people who don’t typically file a return but who successfully used the Non-Filers tool on IRS.gov last year.
  • In total, the first batch included approximately 90 million payments, with a total value of more than $242 billion.
  • The use of direct deposit to issue these payments means that they were disbursed remarkably faster than would otherwise be possible.
  • While most payments were disbursed by direct deposit, Treasury mailed roughly 150,000 checks worth approximately $442 million.

Additional batches of payments will be sent in the coming weeks as direct deposits and through the mail as paper checks or debit cards. The vast majority of all Economic Impact Payments will be issued by direct deposit. No action is needed by most taxpayers.

Many federal beneficiaries who filed 2019 or 2020 returns or used the Non-Filers tool were included in these first two batches of payments, if eligible. For federal beneficiaries who did not file a 2019 or 2020 tax return or did not use the Non-Filers tool, the IRS is working directly with the Social Security Administration, the Railroad Retirement Board, and the Veterans Administration to obtain updated 2021 information to ensure that as many people as possible are sent fast, automatic payments. More information about when these payments will be made will be provided on IRS. gov as soon as it becomes available.

This is NOT a small problem! 30 Million people are waiting to get either the last Covid Relief Check from Trump’s Adiminstration and/or Biden’s Administration!
It’s like SOC. SEC. ADMIN. wants to see every elderly and wounded veteran, retiree, minority, homeless, shelter residing person requiring assistance of SSI OR SSDI OR RR Retirement to crawl off and die in the bushes like old dogs. NO THANKS!

They are trying to blame Social Security Administration for a lack of supplying necessary files. From what I have followed though, as of Friday the 26th, the necessary information and data have been given to IRS. I Recieved the first 2 with zero delay or issues but this time, nothing at all. Makes no sense if you ask me.

I’m concerned my stimulus payment. As of March 29 I haven’t yet received the third direct deposit. I am scared debt collectors may have garnished mine. How can i find out if this is the case?

The checks may only be garnished if a judgements has been approved in court. If you haven’t had any court notices or judgements, then the problem is between social Security releasing the files late on Thursday and the IRS not processing them quickly. Which has put millions of us in trouble! Plus there’s no way to speak to anyone regarding their slow processing!

It’s very frustrating to wake up each day hoping that your payment is in your account. I’m on SSDI and really need this money. It’s even more frustrating when you check the “get my payment ” tool and you still can’t get a date as of when you’ll get your check. Please help!!

IRS blamed SSA for delay of money to SSI N other benefits for not getting information needed to them. Last week after democrats gave them 24 hours… deadline which was met n information given to IRS. And yet IRS still say they have no date as to when we will get our money which is what they said before blaming as blamed SSA…. so what is hold up now? Still have no dates or info when SSI will be paid. And my address n bank have not changed .

It’s called “BIDEN.” When President Trump was in office, I received my deposit the next day. Go figure.

That has nothing to do with President Biden, the social security person handling it was a trump appointee.

Hey better than everyone else. U know what I worked my a$$ off for years most of the time 2-3 jobs at a time. I worked to support my kids till they were grown and in their own. I didn’t want to go on ss but my ex husband decided that I was done working. He cause me to have a 10# weight limit and caused me to lose My nursing license and not be able to support myself thru working anymore.
