Mnuchin: People can expect checks within 3 weeks

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stated on Thursday that relief checks will start being delivered to people within three weeks.

Commenting on the record-high initial jobless claims figures while speaking on CNBC, Mnuchin brushed off concerns by saying these figures are "not relevant" right now.

The relief package adopted by the Senate last night allocates direct cash payments of up to $1,200 for individuals and $2,400 for couples, not including $500 for every child.
