OK, here’s how to check on your Economic Impact Payments. Click on this link to the IRS website. Do not fall for scam letters. There were NO $500 payments — so that’s the tipoff that the letter is a scam.
Did you get any of the three payments? Did you file an income tax return in 2019 or 2020?
If not, click on this link.

You can sign up there for the stimulus payments and possibly for the Earned Income Tax Credit, which is refundable to you.
