How much money could you get from Uncle Sam for coronavirus relief? Find out with our calculator

Congress and the White House have been wrangling for days over the details of a $2 trillion package of legislation to come to the rescue of an economy ravaged into recession by the global coronavirus pandemic and the stay-at-home measures urged by medical experts to prevent the spread of the contagion.

On Wednesday night, the Senate passed the unparalleled economic rescue package steering aid to businesses, workers and health care systems engulfed by the coronavirus pandemic. Senate passage delivered the legislation to the Democratic-controlled House, which will most likely pass it Friday.

Along with expansion and extension of unemployment benefits for people whose jobs have been sidelined by business closures, sick leave and family medical leave for workers, and food aid, a key component of the 883-page bill is a program of direct payments to many Americans of up to $1,200 for adults who make up to $75,000 per year or $2,400 for married couples who make up to $150,000 annually. A family would also receive $500 per child.

According to a version of the bill being bandied about Wednesday, the payments would be reduced for households over those income thresholds, and be eliminated completely for single-parent households with annual incomes over $99,000 or married-couple households who made more than $198,000 a year.

Use our interactive search tool below to see how much you or your household may receive from the bill if approved by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and signed by President Donald Trump.
