My son is 17 and I didn’t receive a check for him. He turns 18 Aug 12, 2021. He is still in high school and will not graduate until May 2022

As far as the advanced child tax credit. if you have a 17-year-old that turns 18 before December 31, 2021 then you would receive $500 total for that dependent instead of the larger $3000.

When will I receive the 500.00?

The Other Dependent tax credit of $500 is included in your federal tax refund.

"As far as the advanced child tax credit. if you have a 17-year-old that turns 18 before December 31, 2021 then you would receive $500 total"  is a misstatement.   Your child is not eligible for any ADVANCED  payment.  That answer just means he is only eligible for the $500 "other dependent" credit, which will not receive until you file your 2021 tax return next year.  He is too old for any child tax credit.
