Single people get $1,200. Couples get $2,400. Families get $3,000 and an additional $500 for each child under the age of 17.

Anyone with an individual income above $99,000 per year is not eligible. 

The relief package is intended to help offset the toll the coronavirus pandemic has taken on American lives, wallets, and portfolios.
