(WJW) — If you’re still waiting on a third stimulus check, you may get your payment this week.
While payments went out quickly a few weeks ago to those who file taxes with direct deposit, a large number of Social Security beneficiaries, who are not required to file taxes, have yet to receive their government check.
“IRS employees are working tirelessly to once again deliver Economic Impact Payments to the nation’s taxpayers as quickly as possible,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “Our teams immediately began processing data we received last week for federal benefit recipients. We know how important these payments are, and we are doing everything we can to make these payments as fast as possible to these important individuals.”
Those who receive benefits from SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and the Railroad Retirement Board have also not received their checks and are part of the April 7 rollout. Those beneficiaries of Veterans Affairs, however, are still going to have to wait for their checks, the IRS said.

The IRS started processing the third round of payments in March. It said more than 130 million stimulus payments had been issued to Americans so far.
