The Treasury Department will announce at the end of every week the total number of payments that have been sent to households, and the total amount of payments sent. Payments began April 28 and will continue via direct deposit or paper check through mid-July. For a single filer, the minimum payment is generally $300 and the maximum payment is $600. For joint filers, the minimum is generally $600 and the maximum $1,200. There is also an additional $300 payment for each qualifying child.

For tax returns processed by the Internal Revenue Service by April 15 households will receive their payments according to the last two digits of the Social Security number on the tax form. On a joint return, the first number listed will determine when a stimulus payment will be sent.

A small percent of tax returns will require additional time to process and to compute a stimulus payment amount. For these returns, stimulus payments may not be issued in accordance with the schedule above, even if the tax return was processed by April 15. In these cases, the stimulus payment will be issued approximately 2 weeks after the tax return is ultimately processed.
