Wellness Shot: IRS Sends First Round Of Stimulus Checks

Saturday the first round of coronavirus relief payments or Economic Impact Payments were direct deposited to many taxpayers’ bank accounts. For most people, you don’t need to do anything to get the payment from the IRS.

To avoid scams Remember the IRS will not ask that you pay a fee for your payment. They will not call, text, email or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the coronavirus payments.

Starting Sunday, unemployed Californians are getting an extra $600 in weekly benefits. these payments are retroactive to anyone who filed for unemployment from March 29th on.
