Luckily, there is a way to find out if you’re one of them.

There were qualifications and limits to who could and could not receive a stimulus payment.

In order to qualify, single Americans could not have made over $75,000 in 2020.

Married filing jointly Americans could not make over $150,000.

The $1,400 checks would phase out if you made more, with a cap at $80,000 for singles and $160,000 for joint filers.

Over 175 million checks were issued by Dec. 2021.

Most people have received their checks, but specific groups of people may still be waiting.

The following people are still owed stimulus checks

  • 419,822 people with ITINs that had a qualifying dependent
  • 133,578 people who had unemployment benefit exclusions
  • 51,659 people falsely marked as a resident of the U.S. territory
  • 39,666 people who filed changes or had an unresolved condition on their account with the IRS

Anyone still owed money should have received Letter 6475, which told you if you could claim stimulus money.
