So far, a total of 3 stimulus check rounds have been approved. The latest one is not yet finished worth $1400. However, the chances of a fourth federal payment happening are still uncertain as Congress continues debating the infrastructure plan worth $3.5Bn. The bill may not have a direct relief aid, but the economy is expected to receive a tremendous boost.
