And now they decided they want prisoner's checks back as well...

If I remember correctly the CARES Act clearly states that these checks are non-recourse, so they can try confiscating duplicate checks, dead peoples checks, prisoners checks, etc etc but they have no legal basis for it...

There is no doubt Trump will spend more than $2T more.
The debt is paper so it's impossible to go bankrupt (unless we run out of trees for paper to print the money on). The only threat is inflation, and as long as it's isolated predictable legislation with advanced notification it's extremely unlikely to devolve into hyper-inflation.
It is truly astonishing how quickly we get desensitized.
We are casually talking about borrowing another $2,000,000,000,000 after having done that a few months ago, and believe there aren't any economic consequences.

Did anyone in Israel with a May 1 st date for sending out their paper stimulus check receive your check?  I heard there may have been an issue on checks on that day.  We have not received ours.
Same idea for me. Never got mine but I dont  also get my mail right away due to technical reasons.
Seems like another week till we can "trace it".

@jose34 Just got a call from someone in Israel who had gotten the letter but not the check.  I don't think she had seen the FAQ you posted, but there was a phone number in the letter and she called that.  Took a few days to get through.  Finally spoke to them and they said they would have to first check if it had been cashed.  They called back today (just a day or two later) and said that the check had been returned to them, and they'll send a new one, to expect it in 2-4 weeks.  (Not surprising.  We had sent several letters to Israel in March or April, which were returned about a month later.)

So IOW you don't necessarily have to wait a week to contact them.

What number did you call?
I tried calling 800-919-9835 waited on hold for 13 minutes spoke to someone, they told me to order a trace they have to transfer me and when they transferred me I got a message they are too busy and I have to call back later.
Is there another number?

Yes, she says that was the number she called.  Also took multiple tries to get through to the right person.  Was told they have to see what happened to the check, ie was it cashed or returned.  If cashed, it's a bigger deal, but doable. Hers had been returned, so was quickly told another would be sent out.  That's all I know.

No. You'll get it on your 2020 return.
