Can You Call About Your Stimulus Check

If you’ve yet to receive your stimulus check, you can call the IRS at a dedicated phone number to inquire about your payment status. Be prepared to provide personal information, such as your Social Security number, date of birth, and filing status. The IRS representative will then be able to inform you of the status of your check, including when you can expect to receive it. Additionally, you can use the IRS’s online tool to track the progress of your payment.
