The only way to check the status of your Economic Impact Payment is to use the Get My Payment tool found on IRS.govThe tool updates once per day, usually overnight.

The associates at American Heritage do not have information about your payment beyond what you are able to view on For information on the first or second Economic Impact Payments, please click here.


When are the payments being sent?

The first batch of payments was sent out on Friday, March 12, 2021 via direct deposit. There will be additional waves of payments to follow in the coming weeks by direct deposit and by mail, either as a check or debit card.

When using Get My Payment, you will see one of the following status messages:

Payment Status: A payment has been processed, a payment date is available and payment is to be sent either by direct deposit or mail (EIP Card or a check.)

Payment Status: You are eligible, but a payment has not been processed and a payment date is not yet available.

Payment Status Not Available: The IRS has not yet processed your payment or you're not eligible for a payment.

Need More Information: Your payment was returned to the IRS because the Postal Service was unable to deliver it. Only people who get this message can use the tool to provide the IRS bank account information.
