WACO — Approximately 150 million Americans should be receiving stimulus checks, and while many have weeks ago, an estimated 60 to 70 million have not received their money, which has lead to confusion.

"I could probably count on two hands the people I know that have already received their check, I mean I don’t know if they’re releasing them in waves, or how that works, but I know quite a few people that have gotten theirs, my parents have gotten theirs, my grandmother, you know what I mean, a bunch of my buddies, and I haven’t gotten mine yet,” said Tim James.

“I was just doing some research and talking to a few people“ explained Wynston Rickmon whose been looking into why his hasn't arrived either.

According to a U.S. Treasury spokesperson, there are several upcoming dates for checks to arrive.

According to a Treasury spokesperson, Veteran Benefit Recipients should also receive their money in early May.

April 29, according to a Treasury spokesperson, is the date that survivors, social security, and disability non-filers should receive their economic impact payments; while SSI and Supplemental Security Income non-filers should receive theirs in early May.

You may have not received your check due to having not filed your 2018 or 2019 tax returns.

If you have filed your 2018 and 2019 tax return, those who elected to receive their return via direct deposit may receive their stimulus check more quickly, compared to people who received their return via mail.

The IRS notes, if you are eligible to receive a stimulus check they will need your relevant and current bank information.

The IRS launched an app called 'Get My Payment' to help people provide them with the needed information to receive a stimulus check if eligible.
