The U.S. Department of the Treasury and IRS announced last Friday that nearly 130 million Americans have received Economic Impact Payments, worth more than $218 billion, in fewer than five weeks. These totals do not include the more than $2.5 billion delivered to U.S. territories for payment to territory residents.

“This administration has delivered Economic Impact Payments to Americans in record time,” said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. “More payments are on their way as we continue to deliver this much-needed relief to the American people.”

The Treasury expects to deliver more than 150 million Economic Impact Payments in total.
