750,000 Floridians still haven’t gotten stimulus checks and won’t unless they contact IRS by October

More than two months since Congress and President Trump passed a historic relief package that would get cash directly to households, 12 million Americans — including 750,000 Floridians — have still not received their stimulus checks, a new report says.

Only California surpassed Florida in the number of individuals who haven’t gotten the payouts, with 1,082,000.

The stimulus checks, which Trump said would bring “urgently needed relief” to people whose lives have been devastated by the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, were disbursed as part of a $2 trillion package signed into law on March 27. They guaranteed one-time $1,200 payments to adults who made less than $99,000 per year and an additional $500 for each of their children.
