    If you haven't received your stimulus check yet then you may want to check the Get My Payment portal on IRS.gov to see if you've already received one but accidentally threw it away or shredded it. Don't worry if you did because you certainly wouldn't have been the only person to do so.

    That's because the check card the Treasury Department and the IRS mailed out appears to be junk mail to a lot of people and isn't clearly labeled (in many peoples opinion) to notify the recipient that it is official US mail. That prompted a number of people to discard their stimulus checks without knowing what they were doing.

    Don't worry though. If you did accidentally throw it out you can request a paper check to be mailed to you.
