President Donald Trump signed the $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill hours after House voted to approve it on Friday.
The main focus of the bill is to help preserve the economy and health care system wrecked by the coronavirus pandemic.
Part of the $2.2 trillion will be used to send money to millions of Americans suffering financially because of coronavirus stay-at-home orders.
The one-time direct payments of $1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year and $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, plus $500 payments per child under 17, will be sent within the next few weeks.
People on Social Security benefits for retirement, disability or supplemental security income are in line for a direct deposit or check just like everyone else.
