The White House said coronavirus stimulus checks are set to hit Americans’ bank accounts as early as this weekend. While speaking at a briefing Thursday, press secretary Jen Psaki outlined the payment schedule for the disbursement of the $1,400 checks that were approved in the American Rescue Plan.
At least one million Americans should receive funds by March 17. Meanwhile, paper checks and prepaid visa debit cards will be sent through April.
“This is, of course, just the first wave, but people will start, some people in the country will start seeing those in direct deposits in their bank accounts this weekend,” Psaki stated. “And payments to eligible Americans will continue throughout the course of the next several weeks.”
