Everyone who earns less than $99,000 per year will qualify – about 90 percent of Americans. Those who earn more than $75,000 per year will see reduced payments. As for how soon the checks will be sent out, it could be anywhere from two to six weeks – likely faster for those who have filed their taxes electronically.
