Claiming a COVID-19 Stimulus Payment

How to be sure you get your COVID-19 Federal Economic Impact Payment ("Stimulus Check”) from the IRS:

Direct deposits and paper checks for Economic Impact Payments are beginning to arrive this week (April 13, 2020). If you filed a return last year or in 2018, and have not changed your bank account information previously provided to the IRS in the past, and if the address you most recently provided the IRS is still current, no further action is likely needed. 
If you are retired or a senior with minimum income who is not ordinarily required to file a return, and the IRS has your current bank and/or address info, no further action is likely needed. 
The IRS Economic Impact Information Center has details about who is eligible for stimulus, and how much a payment will be.
Whether you filed a return in 2018 or 2019, or not, you can use the online resources linked below to be sure the IRS has sent your payment, or will do so correctly upon receiving your updated information. 
If you filed a return in 2018 or 2019, use this link:
