Every day, miracles happen at St. Jude, and that hasn't stopped, even as we take the utmost care to protect our patients during the coronavirus pandemic.

Treatment for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases continues, and it's because of you, our supporters, that we're able to offer world-class care while ensuring families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. And that will not change, even in these challenging times.

What is a stimulus check?

In March 2021, as part of the American Rescue Plan Act, the U.S. government sent stimulus checks to nearly all Americans to help offset some of the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Couples will receive $2,800 and individuals will receive $1,400. Dependents also qualify for $1,400 payments each.

This is the third round of stimulus checks the U.S. government has provided Americans during the Covid-19 pandemic. The first was in April 2020 as part of the Coronavirus, Aide, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The second was in December 2020 as part of the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF).

You can use your stimulus check for anything you need or want. You can use it on food, mortgage/rent payments, car payments or to offset any loss of income experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Who qualifies for a stimulus check?

Individuals who earned up to $80,000 in adjusted gross income, $120,000 for heads of households or $160,000 for married couples filing jointly qualify to receive this third stimulus check. This will be based on your most recent tax return filed.
