Plus-up payments are used to cover the difference between what people got from their 2019 tax filing and what they owe for their 2020 tax filings.

Meanwhile, the Economic Impact Payment is available to people with a household income of $75,000 or less in the case of single filers or $150,000 or less in the case of married couples filing jointly.

A person can also get the money without having to file a tax return as the payments are wholly refundable.
