Economic stimulus payments will be issued according to the last two-digits of the main filer's Social Security Number.

People who use direct deposit also will be among the first to receive the payments starting May 2. Paper checks will be put in the mail starting May 16.

People who file a return after April 15 will receive their economic stimulus payment, but probably about two weeks later than the schedule shows.
