Why Have I Not Received My Stimulus Check?

Why Have I Not Received My Stimulus Check?
The IRS recently updated their Get My Payment Frequently Asked Questions, which addresses why some people never received their Economic Impact Payment (EIP) even though the Get My Payment tool said the pre-paid debit card was mailed on May 22, 2020.
The IRS said, "Due to a system error, EIPs scheduled to be mailed as a pre-paid debit card on 05/22/2020 were not all issued."
