Here's What Joe Biden Didn't Add To The Nation's Stimulus Checks

President Joe Biden might be hours away from signing one of the biggest rescue packages in American history (via The Washington Post), but when you get your payment through the mail, you might spot something different from the first two stimulus checks. That's because the third check will have the signature of a career Treasury Department official instead of that of the sitting president (via KTLA).

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said there was no need to remind everyone who the president was, especially since adding Biden's name would likely delay the payments which are badly needed at this time. "We are doing everything in our power to expedite the payments and not delay them, which is why the president's name will not appear on the memo line of this round of stimulus checks. This is not about him," Psaki said on Tuesday. "This is about the American people getting relief" (via People).

President Joe Biden won't be adding his name

CNBC notes that the federal government could begin sending checks out within days after the American Rescue Plan Act is signed. Those who already have their bank account information with the government are likely to receive their checks first, but not everyone can expect to get one.

Under the Rescue Plan, those who are making more than $80,000 a year won't be getting anything, while those who make between $75,000 to $80,000 will get less than the allocated $1,400. The plan also makes dependents eligible to get stimulus checks (via People). 

Recall that because former President Donald Trump wanted his name added to the checks, that directive translated into a delay of several days before the money could be disbursed to those who needed it the most. Trump's decision to have his name on an IRS payout made it the first time a president's name has appeared on a federal government check (via The Washington Post). With Joe Biden not insisting that his name be on Americans' checks, an additional delay isn't expected.
