It would be interesting to see if some banks are posting sooner than others. BofA says itís processing now. Our stim 1 check was prorated so we got less than a full $2400 but stim 2 was even more prorated so we got less than $600 for both of us. I didnít really expect anything and donít need it, not complaining. Will probably give it to the kids who can use it but fortunately not impacted either.

What a lot of folks miss is that the point is to get the funds into the economy and we are just transport mechanisms. Itís good for folks that are in need but thatís a side benefit.

Our (reduced) stimulus hit the bank on Jan 1st. it is still pending as of this morning. No biggie. We are retired and don't need it to survive.

While we don't need it, getting it is not stopping those who do need it from getting theirs. It is not like the gov't had x dollars and divided it to only those who need it. Those who do need it, got every penny they were supposed to.

I expect that the fed deficit will never be paid down or off. I don't expect that higher taxes would ever be used to pay down the debt caused by some of us getting paid who didn't need it. So we have it. If we don't spend it now, our heirs will eventually. It's not like that money is sitting under a mattress. It is being used, as every other dollar in the banks are, for loans, paying account interest, paying salaries etc.

What I thought, and agreed with, was that the 1st one went out to the larger group due to the expediency required. There was little time to find those who needed it most. Some who didn't need a stimulus got paid. Congress had time to sharpen their pencils and do a better job of targeting only those who truly needed another stimulus. Sadly, they didn't.

Ours showed up this morning. I had checked a couple of times over the weekend because I was curious to see if it would show up as "pending", but it never did.

I think we get it, but it's a poor mechanism to get the money into the economy. Most people will save it or pay bills. There's not a lot I could spend it on now even if that were my intention. I bet most of us here buy what we want when we want it so really don't have any pent up demand.

+1 We received ours along with our retirement pay on Dec. 31. I was quite surprised! The last I knew congress was discussing a larger stimulus payment.

FINALLY! It wasn't here earlier this morning, but there is a brand new deposit from the IRS into my checking account of $451.95, which is about what I figured it would be.

Mine never showed up as pending, for some reason.

The last stimulus check, was a paper check. No way they're going to print checks by 1/15/2021.

I guess I'll just follow the interview in H&R Block tax software update and hope for the best.
My brother received the paper check Saturday. You may get it before 1/15.
