The IRS will issue the EIPs via direct deposit and Direct Express starting today, May 22, to the same direct deposit account or Direct Express card as the recipient’s monthly Social Security or SSI payment. Paper check EIPs will be mailed starting May 27.

    Myself and a few others that have called me to see if I could help them have not gotten our checks. I get mostly SSA and a small SSI check automatically deposited for quite some time. Who do I talk to about not getting my check? Who do I tell the others to contact? we keep hearing deadlines in deposit dates and we still have not gotten checks what do we do
