After Congress reached an agreement about a new coronavirus relief bill in December, the IRS has been sending out millions of stimulus checks.
Under the CARES Act, which passed in the spring of 2020, Americans were entitled to receive up to $1,200 each in stimulus payments. This time, though, the maximum you can collect is $600 per person.
Although the stimulus checks are smaller this time around, there are still ways to make the most of this money. If you can afford to invest your check wisely, you could potentially double your cash.
