The third batch of stimulus payments for coronavirus relief continues to be sent out, but those who haven’t gotten theirs by Wednesday should start checking the mailbox instead of their bank accounts.

The Treasury Department announced this week that no more direct-deposit payments will be made after Wednesday, so Americans still awaiting their money should now look for a mailed check or prepaid debit card.

The department announced last week that it had sent $242 billion worth of payments to 90 million Americans. Many of them received a text that there was a pending deposit earmarked for their bank account.

To track the status of a stimulus payment, use the “Get My Payment” feature on the IRS website.
