    A Third Round of Stimulus Checks: What You Need to Know

    The American Rescue Plan Act was signed on March 11th, 2021 meaning that eligible Americans will see a third round of stimulus payments. This third economic impact payment (EIP) is worth up to $1,400 for eligible individuals and their dependents. Like the first two stimulus payments, the payments will be made primarily via direct deposit. If the IRS does not have an account on file for you, you will receive your payment via a paper check or pre-paid card.

    The IRS website has the most up-to-date information regarding the timing of these payments, but we expect them to start posting to accounts no earlier than March 17th, 2021. Like the last two rounds, those with direct deposit will likely see the payments sooner than those that receive their payments in the form of a check or card.

    To learn more about the timing of the stimulus payments or to track the status of your payment, please visit irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment. You can also check out our most frequently asked questions regarding COVID Relief Economic Impact Payments.

    FAQs: Economic Impact Payment

    What is the status of my Economic Impact Payment and when can I expect it to arrive?2021-04-01T15:39:39-05:00

    The IRS and Treasury Department will begin delivering the second round of payments no earlier than March 17th, 2021. Connexus does not have access to the status of your payment until it is deposited into your account. However, you can check the status of your payment by using the IRS Get My Payment tool.

    What is an Economic Impact Payment and how might it affect me?2021-03-12T19:07:28-06:00

    On or around March 17th, 2021, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Treasury Department will begin delivering a third round of Economic Impact Payments (EIP) to millions of Americans as part of the American Rescue Plan, signed on March 11th, 2021. These payments are designed to provide support to citizens facing financial hardship due to the COVID crisis in the U.S., and are a follow-up to the first and second round of payments sent in April 2020 and January 2021.

    Am I eligible to receive a second Economic Impact Payment? If so, how much will I receive?2021-03-12T19:10:01-06:00

    Connexus does not have access to information about your eligibility for an Economic Impact Payment. The stimulus bill relies on 2019 and 2020 tax returns to calculate eligibility/amounts for the third round of stimulus payments.

    Congress approved limits based on adjusted gross income (AGI) ranges. This means that individual taxpayers making less than the minimum threshold could get the full $1,400 stimulus payment, while those earning above the AGI threshold will get reduced payment amounts. Stimulus payments are fully phased out at higher incomes.

    For more information about your eligibility and the amount you may receive, please visit irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.

    If eligible, will my second Economic Impact Payment be directly deposited into my Connexus account?2021-03-12T19:11:58-06:00

    The IRS will use the data already in its system to send the payments. Taxpayers with direct deposit information on file with the IRS will receive their payment via direct deposit into that account. If your Connexus account is the account you have on file with the IRS (into which you have previously received your tax refunds), you should expect to see your payment deposited directly into your Connexus account no earlier than March 17th, 2021.

    Those without current direct deposit information on file with the IRS will receive their payment as a check or debit card in the mail.
