Still no third stimulus check yet? How to track your $1,400 payment from the IRS

This week sent by the IRS this week, bringing the total payments disbursed to roughly 163 million. However, if you still haven’t received your third check for up to $1,400, it’s probably time to track it down. Multiple things could be holding up your payment: An error could be delaying it, the IRS may have the wrong address for you or it just hasn’t been sent yet. You might also be owed a “plus-up” payment even if you’ve already received a stimulus check.

Fortunately, you can follow your check or EIP card right to your mailbox using tools from the IRS and US Postal Service. If your payment still doesn’t arrive, you may need to file a payment trace to find out where your check is.

While yes, we recommend using the IRS tool, we also want to warn you about the complex error messages you might get. You also may not be updated on everything you want to know, but we’ll help you navigate the system. While you’re here, catch up on the latest details on a possible fourth check, as well as the child tax credit payment info if that applies to you — including how much money you could get. Here’s how to check if your state owes you money and how some people could get $50,000 back with these one-time benefits. This story is updated frequently.

 Everything the IRS Get My Payment tool can tell you about your third stimulus payment

To get the status of your third check using Get My Payment, enter your Social Security number, date of birth, street address and ZIP or postal code. The tool will then display a message with information about your payment. You can see things like whether your money was sent or is scheduled to be sent, the payment method (direct deposit, paper check or EIP card) and the date your stimulus money was issued. It may also say it can’t yet determine your status — see more below about error messages.
