Know when your stimulus check is coming in the mail

You can see the day it will be delivered. The tracking service is free from the US Postal Service.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The deadline to give the IRS your bank account information has come and gone. So, now you're waiting for your stimulus check to come in the mail. There's a way to know when it is just a few hours from being in your mailbox and in your hands.

The USPS has a free mail tracking app. It's called Informed Delivery.
It's a quick 3-step process to sign up for it.  Informed Delivery takes pictures of the letters as they go through the automated sorting machines. Those pictures are then sent to your phone or computer.
