Sheriff Dar Leaf of the Barry County Sheriff’s Office has received clarifying information from U.S. Representative Justin Amash’s office regarding recent stimulus checks being received by citizens in the name of a family member who had deceased prior to the receipt of the stimulus check.
According to Matt Weibel, Representative Amash’s district director, U.S. Treasury checks issued by the IRS that are sent to families for deceased individuals must be returned. If the deceased individual was married, the surviving spouse may keep their portion of the stimulus check.
