The U.S. Treasury Department confirmed Friday that most Americans could get a stimulus check direct deposits from the latest COVID-19 relief package as early as this weekend.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki first announced the expected timeline after President Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan into law.

The Treasury Department took to Twitter on Friday and announced, "As announced yesterday, some people could start seeing relief payments hit their bank accounts as early as this weekend," "Payments to eligible Americans will continue through the next several weeks on a rolling basis."

The Treasury Department further added, "The first batch of relief payments will go to all taxpayers who provided direct deposit info for their 2019 or 2020 tax returns,"

The stimulus payments include $1,400 checks for individual Americans making $75,000 or less.

Biden originally planned to sign the bill on Friday, but it arrived at the White House more quickly than anticipated.

Anyone can check the status of their payments on the Internal Revenue Service’s website.
