When Is Your $1,400 Stimulus Check Coming?
An update on the latest proposed round of stimulus checks.
President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan proposes a new round of stimulus checks that will give $1,400 to most Americans. CBS News reports that arrivals of these checks could be months away.
