What to do?, we've already filed our taxes. With the IRS and it was accepted and we have gotten our return, the issue is, is that the filing status is wrong?

For 3rd stimulus check, since it's marked single instead of jointly as should be it's saying we're ineligible?

Found out filing status is correct, married filing jointly. We are eligible under the income guidelines for the 3rd stimulus payment but have not received yet? Worried and don't know what to do about it?
