Missing Dependents from Stimulus Payment Amount

Updated December 30th, 2020 at 11:20 AMThis is a developing story. Stay with and it will be updated as more information is published about the unexpected amounts of the 2nd round of stimulus payments.

Do you have missing dependents from stimulus payment?

This story updates often with new information. Is the amount you expected to receive for the 2nd round of stimulus payment wrong? We are closely following the first batch of stimulus payments being direct deposited that started today. If you didn’t receive the entire amount you expected, you aren’t alone. Some people may have received a payment amount different that what they were expecting. We are seeing widespread reports of people who received a $600 direct deposit, but they were expecting more for dependents. In some cases, we have seen someone missing $2400 as a family of four. Getting a smaller than expected payment is throwing quite a few people for a loop. To read more about how much each person is eligible to receive, this is the details about the second stimulus payment.

Why is the amount of my stimulus less?
