There's a stimulus check 2 calculator that is free to use and lets you find out how much money you could get if the HEALS Act — the Senate's $1 trillion economic aid bill — is passed.
While the Republicans and Democrats have not yet reached a deal on the entire stimulus package, another round of checks could be on the way to millions, and so this new stimulus check calculator call tell you how much you would qualify for under the current proposal.
The HEALS Act calculator (opens in new tab) lets you determine your stimulus check 2 eligibility. If you meet the stimulus check 2 criteria, the calculator will let you know how much money to expect if the HEALS Act is passed in its current form and the stimulus check 2 date is set.

HEALS Act calculator creators Bogna Haponiuk and Jasmine J. Mahased said they used the GOP’s latest proposal to help people understand stimulus-check math.
All you'll need to know beforehand to use their stimulus check 2 calculator is your tax filing status (whether you’re single, married or a head of household), how many dependents you claim and the adjusted gross income (AGI) on your most recent tax form.
Another way you can learn how much you qualify for under the HEALS Act is to recall whether you received the CARES Act stimulus check and how much it gave you. While presenting the HEALS Act, GOP Senate leaders said the criteria for direct payments is the same the second time around.
If you’re a single taxpayer earning less than $75,000 or married earning less than $150,000, you’ll receive the full $1,200. That amount decreases the more you make, with relief phasing out for single filers earning more than $99,000 and married filers earning more than $198,000.
