How do I get the stimulus payments?

Stimulus payments were issued automatically to families who had recently filed tax returns, or who were enrolled in certain federal programs. If you missed any of the three stimulus payments, you will need to file a tax return to claim the amount you missed. Your missing stimulus payments are called the Recovery Rebate Credit.

To claim all or part of your third stimulus payment, you need to file a tax return for 2021. You can file for free using any of our services on GetYourRefund.

To claim all or part of your first or second stimulus payments, you need to file a tax return for 2020. You can check your eligibility for filing back taxes for free using GetYourRefund.
