RECEIVED LETTER BUT NO CHECK!

I just received a letter from the White House saying that my stimulus check had arrived.  There was a letter but no check!  What should I do next???

Re: RECEIVED LETTER BUT NO CHECK!

I got that letter long after I received the check in the mail, maybe 6 weeks.

@fortune   Usually the letter comes a week or so after you received the check.  If you did not get a check... I would assume there is somewhere on line that will direct you what to do.  Maybe go to the irs.gov site

@QueenDanceALot  We received the Visa Debit card and I almost shredded it.  Hopefully, you did not shred yours.  There are posts on this board that will tell you how to check if your stimulus payment has been sent.  If you did shred it, again, there is info here that can help.

I would do what @Mom2Dogs  suggested.  Check your info on irs.gov

 

Back whenever it was that checks were being mailed out I checked that site and it told me the date my check was being mailed out to me.

I think you meant this reply to @fortune .  I received my check quite awhile ago.

Re: RECEIVED LETTER BUT NO CHECK!

OP: you were likely sent a debit card, not a check, under separate cover.

Check the gov't website and input your info for answers.

look at your checking account online to see if it was direct deposited. Watch incoming mail for a check or credit card. I would give it a while to materialize.

Could it have been direct deposited in your account ?
