Could a second stimulus check happen before the Nov. 3 election, and, if so, how much could you get if you qualify a new payment? Now that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have agreed to resume negotiations to pass another, there’s still hope.

House Democrats hope to score a vote on a new relief proposal worth $2.4 trillion on Oct. 2. If it passes, the Senate could choose to pick it up, or, like the Heroes Act that the House passed in May, could do nothing.

The first stimulus check sent up to $1,200 per adult, but a second stimulus payment could be lower or higher, particularly if the qualifications for dependents are broadened or if your financial circumstances have changed since

Could you get a second stimulus check before the Nov. 3 election, and, if so, for how much? Now that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have agreed to resume negotiations on an economic rescue package, it could still happen.

House Democrats are readying a new relief proposal worth $2.4 trillion that may get a House vote on Oct. 2. If it passes, the Senate would have the chance to vote and negotiations could potentially kick into high gear — or the Senate could leave it to languish.

The first stimulus check had a maximum amount of $1,200 per adult, but a second stimulus payment could be lower or higher, particularly if eligibility rules concerning your dependents change. These new qualifications (among others)
