Another round of $1,400 stimulus checks arriving in bank accounts TODAY after fury over delay

ANOTHER round of the third batch of stimulus checks will land in bank accounts today – more than a month after Biden signed the bill into action.

Veterans have been left struggling while they wait for payments amid a huge delay.

The payments will be rolled out to vets who receive pension and benefits but don't usually file a tax return, the IRS said in a statement.

In round one of the stimulus rollout, 90M payments were made, 89.9M by direct deposit, 150,000 by check.

In round two, there were 37M payments, 17M by direct deposit, 15M by check, and 5M by debit card. And in round three, 25M payments, 24M by direct deposit, 1M by check. 

Veterans can use the online "Get My Payment" tool by this weekend to track the status of their checks.

So far, there have been problems distributing checks to low-income individuals.

The IRS created a simple online form that allowed low-income people who were not usually required to file tax returns to provide their contact information to the agency, CNN reported.

However, this handy tool is now gone.

Those who used the non-filer tool before it went offline are able to receive their stimulus payments without having filed their 2020 tax returns.

But those who haven’t already used the tool cannot.

Luckily, more 'plus up' payments will be going out to Americans on a weekly basis as part of stimulus checks sent out to the US Government.

Since the release of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, more than 1 million ‘plus-up’ payments have been made to Americans in a bid to boost the economy and consumer habits.

They form part of stimulus checks, which are are sent out by the US Government to taxpayers during times of economic hardship as a way to boost spending power.

It will enable many of those affected by the pandemic to claim extra cash.
