How will you receive the stimulus check payments?
Like federal stimulus checks, the California payment will be distributed via a direct payment to a bank account or through a paper check.
In case you have requested a direct deposit you could receive your payment in your bank account between September 1 and October 15. If, on the other hand, you received your money through a paper check in the mail, it could be because you selected the option or because you received an advance tax refund.
If you are one of the taxpayers who filed a tax return after August 20 you will have to wait a little longer to receive your payment since the state agency takes up to 45 days to process the return and release the deposit.
In the case of paper checks, they will be released according to the last three digits of your zip code. If your tax return was issued after the date set for distribution, you will have to wait 60 more days.
