( CBS San Francisco ) — A possible fourth stimulus check remains a popular topic with the third round of economic relief payments almost concluded. About 161 million payments of up to $1,400 per person have been issued since the third stimulus package passed in mid-March. Paper checks and EIP cards continue to continue to show up in mailboxes.
