    My two daughters both got theirs early this month. I haven't got mine. My understanding is that there will be a way to claim it when we file our 2019 income tax.

    No idea if we have ever or will ever receive anything.
    Uncle Joe does not give a flip about the future debt or the state of the country... It is all about how to progress his personal life.

    IMHO, all we are doing is bequeathing our future generations with an inheritance of massive debt. However, I don't know of an alternative. Just let everyone suffer? I'm afraid I don't have an answer. BTW, wife and I have both gotten each round of stimulus. Helps us some, but if I were a single parent with children and no job (because my employer was shut down) it wouldn't go far.

    The country is already bankrupt. At some point other countries will refuse to accept dollars for payment. For a preview, look at Germany after WW!.

    You mean our Indian Reservation Pay Day Loan?

    Yes, I received it. My son has not received his from April, let alone the current one.

    IRS says mine was mailed 1/6/21. I haven’t seen it. The postmaster says they have been coming in in small batches. The envelope looks like junk mail, so be careful.

    Yes--sort of. Just day before yesterday I made the drive to the post office and got a large handful of mail out of the box. There is a big recycle receptacle located by a table. I dump all the mail onto the table and start sorting through it, stuffing junk mail into the recycle. Here's a legal size envelope with the US Treasury seal on it and the name of a private bank I never heard of that looks for all the world like an advertisement. My hand was moving toward the recycle slot when I felt a credit card inside it. I get offers to change my credit card all the time--haven't had one for years, just a debit card--and I always salvage them from the junk mail and cut them up for purposes of financial protection. Don't want anyone attempting to pass off a worthless card with my name on it. So I open the envelope, read the contents, and it turns out this is the stimulus payment. The card has both my name and my wife's name on it, and I says to phone a number, set a pin number, and you can start using the card for transactions until the money is exhausted. It also says that once the money is spent the card will not be reloaded, and future stimulus payments will include a new, different card. I called the number, set the pin, and learned that there is a $1,200 balance on the card which means $600 each. You can incur bank charges by, one example, calling more than once a month to ascertain your balance, etc. So, today I'm going to go to my bank's drive up window and have them transfer the entire balance into my savings account and then cut up the card. That's what happened to me. Honestly---I almost trashed it.

    DG,
    Let us know how that works out for you. While I received a paper check, I knew they were sending debit cards to some people. So before my check arrived, I asked my Bank if I could transfer/deposit funds, if I were to receive such a card, which I figured everyone was gonna get, that didn't get the automatic deposit from the Treasury. The Bank said the only way they knew of, was to withdraw funds via ATM, and then deposit the cash. There would be fees to getting the cash out of a ATM. I am glad I got a paper check.
    Good Luck,
    Jon

    Last years was a debit card, and yesterday got a check. It says Economic Impact Payment, President Donald J. Trump, on the check.

    Already ordered a new 1889 Swiss rifle, will save the rest for taxes. I have a feeling they will want more taxes in the near future

    Hi...
    My wife and I got ours already.
    My son received his also.
    My $600 is sitting in my personal account until I decide what to use it for. Don't really need it...
    My wife will spend her $600 however she sees fit...she doesn't really need it either.
    My son will do with his whatever he chooses.he doesn't need it either.

    I see an enormous debt being piled up with massive tax increases to pay for these pandemic payouts. And they won't bring in any where near enough money. Don't be surprised if the socialist Democrats start proposing confiscating 401(k) and IRA plans to pay down the national debt. When that doesn't work...then they will go after private pension plans.

    Welcome to the New Socialist Amerika Comrade.
