    Did you try contacting the IRS? They should be able to tell that you never cashed or deposited the check and either issue you a new check, or worst case scenario allow you to claim it on your 2020 taxes next year. That's a big gap though. Hopefully they can re-issue you a check soon.

    IRS isn’t available to take calls right now. So until they reopen their phone lines, hopefully next month, there’s no way to get help for lost checks.

    and I’m assuming the phone lines will be flooded with wait times well over hours due to the fact they closed their call centers back in March.
