Where’s my economic stimulus check?!? How to check the status of your stimulus check
I am pretty stoked about the so-called economic stimulus checks. I have no plans to stimulate the economy though. I plan on using it to pay down a little debt.
So, when I read that the checks were coming early I got excited. You see, my last two digits are “06″ and this week they were sending out money for “00″ to “20″ so I was expecting that money early in the week.
Yesterday it still had not shown up in my account. I was getting nervous here.
Luckily there is a toll-free IRS stimulus check status hotline that you can call for updates. All you need to do is call 1-866-234-2942. Enter in a small amount info (your social, your filing status and your exemptions) and then it tells you when your check is to be deposited.
I called it last night and it said my stimulus check is being deposited today.
I just checked my account – score! It’s there!
So, if your economic stimulus check is MIA, just call 1-866-234-2942 before getting all worried like I did.
