Mnuchin: Stimulus checks to start arriving tonight

United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said $600 one-time direct payments to Americans will start going out tonight by direct deposit and noted that the delivery will continue into next week.

"Paper checks will begin to be mailed tomorrow," Schumer added.

The House of Representatives Monday night approved a bill that calls for the sum to be increased from $600 to $2,000 and sent the action to the Senate. The move came after President Donald Trump underscored the need for the stimulus checks to be higher and called for the removal of "unnecessary" items from the recently signed government funding bill.
