Stimulus check for deceased

By Terry Savage on April 20, 2021 | Wild Card & Pandemic Related

Hi Terry –
My father passed away on January 2nd this year from Covid. I just received his $1400 stimulus check in the mail, which came in his name, but to my address. Was he eligible to receive this and can I accept the funds on his behalf as part of his Estate?
Thank you!

Terry Says

Yes, absolutely his estate is entitled to it! He was alive at yearend 2020, and that’s what matters.
