Momentum now seems to be behind afor . Legislators confront the reality of who continue to lose jobs and is expected to take up the discussion on Monday after the Senate’s two-week recess.
“We will return to the session next week and in the coming weeks I will post a later package in the Senate,” Senate Majority Leader and Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell confirmed on Tuesday. “We are looking at another direct payment,” he added.
But given that the Senate will make the decision within three weeks, when is it soon like a second round of stimulus checks would come? We dug through the Senate calendar and used the first stimulus check as a guide to estimate that timeline. We also project what happens if the Senate cannot agree on a bill before the next withdrawal.

Decision on stimulus control: Why 20 July and 7 August play a role
The Senate is currently on a planned recess that began Friday, July 3 and runs through this Friday, July 17.
“As soon as the Senate returns [from its current break]”We will be sitting on a two-party basis with Republicans and Democrats,” Secretary of the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on July 9. He added that it will be a priority for the next legislation to be adopted between July 20 and the end of the month.
The deadline before the Senate goes to another recess is tight.
When the senators return to Washington on Monday, the debate over the second stimulus control – and the larger financial aid package – will begin. It gives the Senate three working weeks to create, debate, negotiate and pass another stimulus package before the next recess. It gives the Senate 15 working days (not weekends) until August 7, the last day of its meeting.
What happens if the Senate misses the “deadline” on August 7?
If the Senate does not pass a new rescue package before its withdrawal in August – and McConnell said the Senate will not work past August 7 – here are the dates it must work with by the end of the summer and fall.
August 10 to September 7: The Senate will break for its August selection, which lasts until Labor Day (Monday, September 7). It is 32 days from the last date of the Senate session (August 7) to the first day of the next session (September 8). The Senate will not function through the August break, McConnell said June 30.
If the Senate takes up a second package of stimulus in July, a new bill approving the checks would have to pass both chambers before or before Friday, August 7 to get through before the Senate’s August break.
September 8 to September 25: The Senate is back in session. If Congress does not complete the stimulus package in early August, it will have to resume in September.
September 30 to October 9: After a two-day break on September 28 and 29, the Senate will be in session until October 9. The presidential election is scheduled for November 3 and the Senate will return to work on November 9.
When could the IRS send a second incentive payment?
It is still possible for the IRS to start sending checks in August, if the House and Senate provide a second round of stimulus checks at the end of July.
For reference, the president signed the CARES law into law on March 27, and the first incentive payments expired less than three weeks later, on April 15.
Let’s just say that a new stimulus act becomes law on Friday 7 August. Following the CARES timeline, the first inspections can take place until 26 August.
However, it is likely that the IRS can go even faster to send out, because it already has the mechanism in place from the first round, including a tool for humans to and .
Factors such as how many would qualify for a second payment may play a role in slowing or accelerating this timeline.
What’s the last day I could get a second stimulus check?
Even if we do not know anything official – and not until another rescue package is official – we can benefit from the experience of the first stimulus checks as a potential plan.
The IRS will have sent approximately 200 million checks when it is ready to distribute payments. (The total U.S. population is nearly 330 million people, according to the Census Bureau.)
In early June, the House Ways and Means Committee (PDF) estimated that as many as 35 million Americans could still be paid.
The IRS has not responded to CNET’s questions about how many checks remain to be sent today, but the agency said it will continue to pay the final batches by the end of the year. If it existsHowever, it is possible that it does not take that long to send a second round of checks.

What does it take to get a second stimulus check?
For now we are waiting. To get a second check, the proposed rescue package would have to pass both the House and the Senate before a signature from the president. Only then could it take effect.
After that, the IRS now has a system for organizing and distributing these controls. But it can still be weeks more before you get a payment.
