Can I still get the stimulus check if I'm married but not together

You mentioned that you did file as Married Filing Jointly in 2019. If that's the case, as long as you qualify for the stimulus based on that return, it will be direct deposited into the account on that return or mailed to the address on that return.

I filed married because we're not legally separated but were not together either.

It sounds like you are eligible for your own independent payment.  However, when you filed may determine whether you receive it in advance (in the payments going out currently) or if you may have to wait until you file your 2020 tax return in 2021.

 

Have you checked to see if any information is available on your payment here yet? Get my Payment

If you did NOT file a joint return  AND  you have no reason to file a 2019 return AND  you did not file a 2018 return AND  you are not receive SS benefits    THEN you can use the NON FILER tool to enter information to get the stimulus check ...   https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here
