Millions of Americans received that last stimulus check worth $1,400 from the federal government, but is it possible many were missed?
There are ways to check and see if you were missed.
If you were, you may have been unaware you were owed a check and can still receive one.
How do I find a potentially missing stimulus check worth $1,400?
You first need to have qualified for a stimulus check to even get one.
This means if you are single, your income could not exceed $75,000.
Married couples could not exceed $150,0000.
The stimulus payment would then phase out until it disappeared entirely at $80,000 for singles and $160,000 for married couples.
