On Monday, the U.S. treasury announced that stimulus payments will start to be mailed out on debit cards.

Before this announcement, stimulus payments were sent one of two ways, by check in the mail or by direct deposit, leaving millions of Americans still waiting on theirs.

It's projected that roughly four million payments will be sent out on debit cards.

The debit cards, once received and activated can be used to make purchases, get cash at an ATM or transfer funds to a bank account, free of charge.

Look out for your payment, as it might come faster than waiting on a check.
