Informed Delivery, the USPS tool to know when my stimulus check will arrive by letter

With the USPS Informed Delivery tool, you will know when your stimulus check will arrive via mail. Here we tell you how it works

Two stimulus checks were not enough to face the labor and economic crisis derived from the still latent coronavirus outbreak , which is why the Government of the American Union approved a third round of economic impact payments through the ‘ American Rescue Plan ‘, rescue of 1.9 trillion dollars with relief for covid-19.

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) about 160 million Americans are eligible for payment, of which 156 million have already received the corresponding money .

According to the government agency, the missing citizens will receive the payment via postal mail, either on an EIP debit card or in a printed check, since the IRS has already finished issuing all payments via direct deposit.

Due to the high demand presented by the United States Postal Service (USPS), payments may present certain delays, which is why the USPS has made the ‘Informed Delivery’ tool generally available with which you can track your parcel 24/7 , including your third stimulus check .

Informed Delivery, the USPS tool to know when my stimulus check will arrive by letter

Informed Delivery is a free USPS tracking service with which you can track all your letters and / or parcels. The tool automatically scans all the courier in your name and sends you an image of the letter or package that will be delivered to you.

To have access to this tool you have to register by entering your name and postal address. Anyone who signs up for Informed Delivery can access the information by requesting the USPS to notify them when each mail with their name is on the way.

It is worth mentioning that, if you register, you will receive notifications of all your emails, not just the envelope with the third stimulus check. Notifications are received via email every morning from Monday to Saturday. You can cancel the service at any time.
