Letters signed by President Joe Biden have begun to go out notifying beneficiaries of their direct payments under the administration's Covid relief package, CNN has learned.

(CNN)Letters signed by President Joe Biden have begun to go out notifying beneficiaries of their direct payments under the administration's Covid relief package, CNN has learned.

The letters were sent out this past week, a White House official tells CNN, to notify recipients who received direct payments under the American Rescue Plan last month.

"My fellow American, On March 11, 2021, I signed into law the American Rescue Plan, a law that will help vaccinate America and deliver immediate economic relief to hundreds of millions of Americans, including you," the letter from the IRS reads.

Previous tranches of Covid relief, passed and signed into law under then-President Donald Trump, included physical checks signed by Trump, which drew criticism from Democrats at the time, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called the decision "shameful. " Those payments also required notifications from the IRS and Treasury, which were also signed by Trump.
