Virginians who receive VA benefits should expect Economic Impact payments of $1,400 to begin arriving this week.
The latest round of payments applies specifically to veterans and their beneficiaries who receive Compensation and Pension benefit payments and do not normally file a tax return. Most payments will be automatically deposited into bank accounts or loaded onto the Direct Express cards where veterans receive their benefits.
“Last month, the American Rescue Plan became law, and it has substantially bolstered our COVID-19 response,” Second District Congresswoman Elaine Luria said. “These Economic Impact Payments will help many military families who have been hit hard by the pandemic, and I am glad they will begin to see this relief within the next few days.”
Those waiting on paper checks or debit cards through the mail should expect to receive their payments over the next several days.
