WELP! Roommates, though we just gave you information on the stimulus checks that will soon be disbursed to Americans all over the country, it seems there’s a new development. Apparently, if you owe child support payments, that check will not be showing up, according to NBC News. Now, I’m sure after reading that there may be a few people on your mind. Pettiness aside, keep reading if you have more questions!

When it comes to disbursement, it seems one of the biggest red flags is owing past due child support. So if y’all thought you were going to pull a fast one on Uncle Sam, better think twice, cause the government isn’t playing about them chirlllllren!

To put that into perspective, if you happen to owe back taxes, student loans or any other debt to the government, you’re still eligible to receive your money, no worries there. However, if you haven’t been taking care of THEM BABIES… you might as well just forget about that check.

The relief bill enacted today will include cash payments (or a check) to help people through this crisis and will be available to U.S. residents with a valid social security number. See below to see how much you’ll be receiving.
