Millions of Americans have already received a third stimulus check (either by direct deposit or paper check). But if nothing has shown up in your bank account or mailbox yet, it might be because you're not eligible for a third payment. Some people may have gotten the impression that everyone is entitled to a third stimulus check. Unfortunately, that's just not the case.

There are a few reasons why you could be left without a third stimulus check. It could be because of your income, age, immigration status, or some other disqualifying factor. Here's a list of people who won't be getting a third stimulus check from Uncle Sam. Hopefully, you're not on the list and you'll get a nice payment soon — especially if you're one of the millions of Americans struggling financially because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
