Some US veterans have been waiting weeks for their third stimulus checks.

The $1,400 stimulus checks, authorized by the latest COVID-19 relief bill, have been rolling out in waves since mid-March. But, many veterans who are eligible have not yet received their checks.

According to a statement released by the IRS on April 7, however, veterans receiving compensation and pension benefits could see their payments via direct deposit by next week.

Veterans receiving benefits from the VA will receive their stimulus checks by April 14

Like those receiving Social Security benefits, veterans who didn’t file taxes have had to wait for their stimulus checks.

But, stimulus checks should be coming to veterans’ bank accounts soon. The IRS states that those who receive compensation and pension benefits through VA can expect their payments by April 14. The majority of these payments will be sent by direct deposit.

Tracking information should be available through the “Get My Payment” tool on the IRS’s website starting this weekend, April 10-11. No action is required to receive stimulus checks for those who are eligible.

Payments are also coming for others this week

Veterans are just one of the groups who can expect to see stimulus checks soon.

About 19 million people receiving retirement, survivor, or disability benefits can expect to receive their payments today, April 7. Most of the payments are for those who didn’t file a tax return in 2019 or 2020, and who didn’t use the IRS’s non-filers tool previously. About 85,000 people receiving benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board will also receive stimulus checks this week.

Americans who lost income between 2019 and 2020 could also see stimulus check deposits this week. The IRS is issuing payments to those who weren’t previously eligible, as Americans continue to file their 2020 taxes through the extended May 17 deadline. If you weren’t eligible for stimulus checks based on your 2019 income, but would be based on 2020 income, filing your 2020 taxes now could help you claim the stimulus checks – the IRS states that these payments will continue weekly as it processes tax returns.
