Albany--Some good news from Uncle Sam on Friday.

You may get your economic stimulus check a little early.

Treasury officials say they're running ahead of schedule, and checks will start arriving Monday.

The rebate checks are expected to pump more than 50-billion dollars into the U-S economy by the end of May.

Kacey Harbuck knows what she wants to do once she gets her check.

" I'm going to pay my bills with it, and gas because gas is so expensive, I need some extra money."

People who filed their taxes early and signed up for direct deposit will get their money first.

Other checks will be sent out based on the last two digits at your social security number.
