Federal Stimulus Checks Arriving

You might want to check your bank account.   

Americans began receiving $600 stimulus checks from the federal government last night. This comes two days after President Donald Trump signed into law a $900 billion stimulus package, which included the direct payments.   

The Treasury Department will begin sending out paper checks today.

On Monday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to increase the payments to $2,000. The Senate is not voting on the measure immediately, using the increase as leverage for other legislation.
