    Over 159 million stimulus checks have been dispersed by June. Many people were paid via direct deposit, and those who didn't have their bank information on file with the IRS were either sent paper checks in the mail, or prepaid debit cards. Those who receive federal benefits (social security) were paid using the Direct Express card. Still, many are waiting on their stimulus money to be dispersed.

    If you filed a 2018 or 2019 tax return, and you included your banking formation (such as to get a refund) the money will be sent to that very same account. If the bank account has been closed, the payment will bounce and you'll be sent a paper check instead. You can check the status of your payment and how it will be sent on the IRS's Get My Payment Tool. In some cases you can update your bank information there.

    For non-filers who do not have their bank information on file with the IRS. You can enter this information using the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here Tool . This is for those who's income is less than $12,000, or are married and file jointly and your income is less than $24,000 combined, or you have no income. This includes those who are on Social Security, and those who are Veterans Affairs beneficiaries who did not file returns for 2018 or 2019 as well.

    I don't think the IRS portal is working anymore. You can still check the status there, but they aren't taking updates any longer. At least that's the case for the Filers portion. Is the Non-filers still live? I don't think it is but correct me if I'm wrong..

    Thanks for the info. It's looking as though non-filers can still check the status of their check and update their information.

    You can also check the status of letters in the mail with informed delivery. For those wanting to really stay on top of tracking their stimulus as it comes through USPS. Works for most addresses, long as your residential.
