Even if you already got your third stimulus check, it’s possible that you can get an additional check.
The IRS is sending out additional payments to people who didn’t get quite as much of the stimulus payment as they were meant to.
About 1395 billion in payments have been made overall since the American Rescue Plan in March. But there is more good news if you have children.
On June 3, the White House press secretary Jen Psaki played down the possibility of a fourth stimulus payment, asserting that the administration has already put forward an economic recovery plan.
The March stimulus law, however, gives these federal agencies until Dec. 31, 2021, to send out all the third checks.
