The IRS has stated that 159 million stimulus checks have been processed in the past two months, totaling almost $267 billion.
Out of those 159 million payments, 120 were sent via direct deposit, 35 million by check, and 4 million by pre-paid debit cards.
Non-filers have until October 15 to claim their payments
The IRS acknowledged that even though millions of Americans have received their economic impact payments, many millions are eligible but have not taken any action to claim their payments.
Non-filers are those that were not required to file a tax return for 2018 or 2019.
If you are a non-filer and are eligible to receive a stimulus payment, you must log onto the IRS’ non-filer-tool by October 15, 2020.
The Non-Filers tool is designed for people with incomes typically below $24,400 for married couples, and $12,200 for singles. This includes couples and individuals who are homeless.
People can qualify, even if they do not have earned income or work.
The Non-Filers tool will remain available through the summer and fall.
The IRS urges every other eligible non-filer to register soon to quickly receive their payment. Anyone who registers by October 15 will receive their payment by the end of the year.

I know of a few people who have not got a stimulus check and they could not even get on line to apply they not even for the first stimulus or even the second one and we also tried calling the IRS but we could not get through, any suggestions?
How do I claim my stimulus check that just been processed for release in 2021? The amount is $600.00.
No action is required if you qualify for this second stimulus check.
I’m glad I’m working for the IRS, hang in there folks may the Lord keep his hands on you all.
