UPDATE: President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan into law on Thursday. People who qualify for stimulus checks could "start seeing direct deposits hit their bank accounts as early as this weekend," according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

The third stimulus check is finally on its way to the White House — and, soon, your wallet.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, just days after the Senate approved a round of $1,400 Economic Impact Payments to help people through the coronavirus crisis. President Joe Biden is expected to sign the package into law on Friday in order to meet a Saturday deadline linked to unemployment benefits.

The only question now is, how soon can you expect to get your third stimulus check?
