Will I get a third stimulus check if I owe child support?

With the third check, if you’re past due on child support, you can still receive your full stimulus payment. This holds true for any past-due federal or state debts: Your third payment is not subject to reduction or offset. However, private debt collectors may be able to redirect your payment to cover a debt.

Is it true that if you owe child support you won’t get a stimulus check?

Your third stimulus payment can’t be seized to pay child support.

That rule changed for the second stimulus check, which couldn’t be taken if you owe money for child support.
