However, this third round of stimulus payments has some changes to eligibility requirements.
Individuals with income of up to $75,000 and married couples with income of up to $150,000 are eligible for the full payment amounts, much like the first two rounds of payments.
Some households that were eligible for partial payments in prior rounds wont be eligible this time.
Individuals with income between $75,000 and $80,000 and married couples with income between $150,000 and $160,000 will receive partial payments.
Those who have income above $80,000 and married couples with income above $160,000 will not be eligible for any funds.
Other changes include adult dependents such as college students, disabled adults and elderly relatives now being eligible for payments. Previously, only dependents under 17 were eligible.
