The IRS and Treasury Department on Thursday night said the administration has disbursed 130 million Economic Impact payments worth approximately$ 335 billion as it prepares to send a large set to Social Security and other Federal beneficiaries.
The payment for economic impact has been sent in batches; the third, which was started processing at the end of last week, contains around 4 million checks and direct deposits with a total value of more than$ 10 billion. People can receive money in this batch of$ 1,400 payments if they have received payments earlier in March based on their 2019 tax return, but are actually eligible for additional money based on a recent 2020 return.
This could happen, for example, if an individual experienced a loss of income. People for whom the IRS did not have any information but have recently filed a tax return will be included too.
