Here are the most comprehensive resources we’ve been able to turn up to help with both. (If you don’t see your lender on any of those lists, try contacting the company directly through its website or app.)

How to use your AGI to figure out how much stimulus money you could get Should another economic relief package pass, how much money you’d get from a second stimulus check depends on your AGI, your filing status (single versus joint) and how many dependents you have. You can check out our story on how to calculate how much money you’d get from a second stimulus check for some examples on how it could break down for you depending on your situation. 

What if it’s too late and your car has already been repoed? Many states have laws on the books about how long and under what conditions lenders must allow you the opportunity to get your vehicle back, but the terms aren’t exactly favorable, especially if you’re in the kind of financial situation that led to repo in the first place.

According to a Bloomberg report on Tuesday, Hertz filed for debtor-in-possession financing, indicating choppy waters ahead. DIP financing comes from creditors who believe a company has a solid recovery plan to execute as it works to restructure. But as a rental car companies are reliant on travelers, the industry’s likely in for a gloomy outlook considering the coronavirus pandemic continues unchecked in numerous parts of the world. 

The filing indicated the company has $1.4 billion of cash on hand, though revenue plunged 67% in the second quarter. If there’s a smidge of a silver lining, Hertz did say demand has slowly started to recover each month, but it’s nowhere near pre-COVID-19 levels. Still, the firm plans to offload another 182,000 cars in its rental fleet. According to the report, Hertz already sold off 100,000 cars as it reached a deal to forgo lease payments on the vehicles’ master lease to save money amid bankruptcy.

Most lenders’ programs have been streamlined to be pretty simple to apply for. Fill out a form, possibly attach some documentation (termination letter, layoff notice, etc.), send it off to your lender and wait for an approval confirmation. If your bank doesn’t have it set up that easy and you have no idea where to begin, the legal services website DoNotPay has a chatbot that can help you draft a letter to your lender.

Bird has denied it received a loan from the US government to help it through COVID-19. Its statements follow reports Monday that the electric scooter company received between $5 million and amanecenublado.blogspot.com officially announced $10 million under the government’s Paycheck Protection Program in April. Both CNBC and The Verge found Bird in the data released Monday by the Trump administration as part of its coronavirus economic stimulus package under the CARES Act, but Bird says it didn’t go through with its loan application.

In most states, a lender, like your bank, can start the repossession process the day after you miss even just one payment, but most companies give their customers a grace period. Often the lender won’t even charge a late fee until the payment is at least 10 days late, and most won’t report it to the three major credit bureaus until it’s over 30 days late. 

But just like the help available with rent payments and unemployment benefits, you do have to ask. The worst thing you can do is ignore the problem and assume it’ll work itself out on its own. (Scroll to the end for what else you should absolutely not do.)

If you’re a married couple filing jointly without children and your AGI is below $150,000, you’ll get a $2,400 payment. That amount will decrease until you hit $198,000, at which point you’re not eligible for a check.

The Hertz bankruptcy ordeal continues, and while the rental car company continues to offload used cars at some dirt-cheap prices, it still needs other sources of cash in the meantime.
