You don’t need to do anything to get your money. The IRS began making direct deposits on Aug. 5, 2020 and mailing checks and debit cards on Aug. 7, 2020. You can check the status of your payment at irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment.
The IRS won’t contact you about your payment. If someone does, it could be scam. Get the FTC’s latest information about Coronavirus scams at ftc.gov/coronavirus/scams.
