Deposit pending as of this morning for us. Don't need it, and honestly, really shouldn't have gotten it (much to the disagreement with others). Our income remained constant throughout 2020, and while some expenses might have increased a bit (i.e. take-out orders), there were a lot of other expenses that were less than we expected in 2020.

Hopefully, those who need it will also get a stimulus payout.

We got ours, and we gave it to a couple of folks that needed it more than we do.

We have ours in pending this morning. They should have targeted it better, but then it would never get resolved.

My stimulus deposit is STILL not even pending yet, but then neither is F's so we are trying to be patient. Maybe they are doing different parts of the country right now.

We both have our monthly SS direct deposited, and we both got the last stimulus (back in April) direct deposited, so we think/hope we'll get this stimulus soon.

The H&R Block site says direct deposits by Jan 4 and checks by Jan 15. We won't get anything, so I'll be unable to verify whether they are correct.

I expected to get a pro-rata amount as I did with the first distribution. Instead, the $600 appeared overnight as pending. Not really enough to transfer to the online savings account. Will probably just throw it at one of the rental remodels underway now.

ETA: Kinda makes up for the miniscule SS increase, which was outweighed by the increase in the various medicare premiums...

Yes, that's the stimulus money. A married couple can earn up to (I think) $174k before it starts to wind down. So being married with two dependents, the $1,800 figure is correct.

Got $286 from US Treasury while I slept and woke up to a notification from the bank of the deposit. Guess I will use it to pay the taxes I will surely owe. Not like it’s free money.

Nothing yet. But we didn't get our original payments until Aug. due to some snowbirding screwups. But when we did get it, it came as an EFT. So I'm hoping this one comes sooner.

Whenever it comes, we're going to redirect it to DD. Her husband has been out of work for about 5 months, although not due to Covid directly. But we don't need it, and they'll definitely stimulate the economy with it more than we would.

Hehe, yeah, twelve hundred bucks.

Wifey just paid the drape lady fifteen hundred for our new linen roman shades.

Like I said, already spent stimulating the local economy. But hey, thanks for the dough!
