Stimulus check update — here’s who might get $1,400 check under Biden plan

Despite hearing out Republican senators who want to reduce the amount Americans would get with a third stimulus check, President Joe Biden is standing firm on his proposal for $1,400 direct payments. However, the White House may be willing to narrow the guidelines so that fewer people will be eligible for the checks. 

On Monday (Feb. 1), Biden met with 10 moderate GOP senators to discuss a $618 billion alternative to his larger, $1.9 trillion stimulus relief plan. The Republican lawmakers want to provide $1,000 checks to lower-income taxpayers making up to $40,000 per year ($80,000 for families), with payments phasing out completely for those earning more than $50,000 and $100,000, respectively.
