Economic Stimulus Checks Starting To Arrive

Posted: Updated:

The IRS is starting to deposit thousands of economic stimulus checks Monday.

If you filed your 2007 tax return with direct deposit you'll receive your money before people who preferred an actual paper check. When you receive it will also be based on the last two digits of your social security number.  The lower the number the sooner you'll get it.

The IRS plans to ship out checks in groups. Each group has a different receive date.  A IRS spokesperson said those dates should be fairly reliable.

"There's going to be some individuals based on the facts and circumstances and whether it's an issue at our end or from their end whatever there's some that will not make that, but the majority will," said Bill Brunson, IRS Spokesperson. 

The IRS has complete calendar of when each group will receive their checks.
