The relief bill passed by Congress on Sunday will mean stimulus checks hitting mailboxes by next week.
At least some of them.
Beginning next week the federal government insists that most Americans will receive a stimulus check of $600. It’s part of the $900 billion pandemic relief package that was agreed to on Sunday.
The final vote happened Monday.
“So much relief, just in time for the holidays,” Mnuchin said during an interview on CNBC. “This is a very, very fast way of getting money into the economy. People go out and spend this money, and that helps small businesses. And that helps getting more people back to work.”
Families that have children will also receive a check for $600 for each dependent. The payments will go out to all individuals who make less than $75,000 a year.
The payments will begin via direct deposit next week.
