You’ll receive your check based on the last two digits of your social security number. If you had direct deposit for your federal tax return for 2007, then you’ll have direct deposit on your stimulus check. You’ll have your check deposited by May 16 at the latest.
Conversely, if you didn’t use direct deposit, then you’ll have to wait for a paper check to show up.
That means, you won’t get your check until mid-May, June or July.
As for us? We’re expecting $1,200 to show up in our checking account by May 9. Woo hoo!
