The IRS will begin mailing paper stimulus checks to Americans in early May, MarketWatch reports, citing the House Ways and Means Committee.

What's happening: Low-income households will receive checks first as the IRS mails 5 million per week. But the committee's timetable shows that all checks will not be mailed until the week of September 7.

What you can do: Check the status of your coronavirus stimulus payment on the IRS website and sign up to get the money via direct deposit with your bank information — even if you didn't file taxes in 2018 or 2019.
