Recently Divorced? DO THIS To Get the 2nd Stimulus Check
If you haven’t heard, the U.S. government is working on a plan to send a second economic stimulus check to Americans who qualify during the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. Similar to the first stimulus check, eligible people will get their money either direct deposited or by mail.
No Stimulus Check if You’re Newly Divorced
Be sure to read this carefully! I’m not suggesting people who recently got divorced will not qualify for stimulus. However, it might be harder to actually get your money.
Divorcees: Those who filed 2019 taxes as married, but are no longer married. Stimulus checks for couples filing jointly (married) go to one single bank account used when taxes were filed.
If the couple did not use direct deposit, the stimulus will be sent to the address used to file. So, if the couple are no longer on speaking terms, they may have trouble getting the other person to cough up their part of the money.
