Government-issued stimulus checks
Third Round of COVID-19 Stimulus (Pending)
On Jan. 14th, the president-elect Joe Biden has announced a $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue plan that includes a third round of "stimulus checks". If you're a qualifying single taxpayer who received or expect to receive $600 in the most recent second payment round, you likely qualify to receive $1,400 under Biden's proposal.

Second Round of COVID-19 Stimulus (Being paid out)
As of Dec. 30, the U.S. Senate was expected to consider a measure to increase the amount of the second stimulus checks to $2,000 from $600. (The relief bill signed into law on Dec. 27 called for $600 payments.) The House of Representatives already approved a measure to increase the payment amount to $2,000 on Dec. 28. Any change to the amount of the payment, or delays in agreeing on the final amount, could affect the timeline for distributing stimulus checks.

First Round of COVID-19 Stimulus (Paid out)
Most Americans have received their $1,200 stimulus checks, or economic impact payments (EIPs), as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) calls them. The first round of stimulus money, which was approved in March and included $500 payments for eligible dependent children, was sent via direct deposit, paper check and prepaid debit card.
Just Announced: Loan Repayment Begins After Jan. 31, 2021
Principal and interest payments on federally held student loans are automatically suspended through January 31, 2021.
The student loan payment and interest suspensions only apply to federal student loans held by the Department of Education.
Some federal student loans under the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program are owned by commercial lenders, and some Perkins Loans are held by the institution or school you attended. Your FFEL lender or school may choose to suspend interest and payments on a voluntary basis, but they are not required by law to do so.
