Both sides agree that a second stimulus package is needed, but the details are still being worked out. 

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin indicated that Americans may get the next round of stimulus checks much quicker this time. 

If they can agree by August 7th, when can you expect to receive your stimulus check? 

If the bill passes by August 7th, you could possibly begin looking for your check the week of August 17th. 

If the bill passes after the Senate returns from their month-long recess, you could possibly begin looking for your check the week of September 21st. 

It is likely that the first people to receive checks would be the same as last time – those who filed their 2018 and 2019 taxes and had provided the IRS with their direct deposit information.
