"I was behind on rent, I work construction so I work by the day, and I just try to keep going and going as best I can and that money helped put me ahead and put me on the right track a little bit, to get back on my feet," Thompson, an Army veteran, told the news station.

He added that it was a miracle that the check managed to get to him in the end.

Millions of Americans have now received stimulus checks from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as part of the government's $2.2 trillion CARES Act to provide financial relief for Americans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But Alvarado, 20, told Newsweek that her 52-year-old father didn't receive a stimulus check and has since set up a GoFundMe page to support him. He's the sole breadwinner for their family and works three part-time jobs to make ends meet after her parents were involved in a car accident two years ago, she said.

"Ever since then my mom has been unable to work and suffers from inflammation and pain everyday," Alvarado wrote on the page. "Working from sunrise to sundown is also taking its toll on my dad."
