As the others have stated, yes you do get one. I had trouble getting mine as well. My problem was that I owed money on my taxes last year so the IRS didn't have any info saved about me. After I gave them what they wanted I got a check roughly two weeks after. What you need to do is go to https://www.irs.gov and select the "Get My Payment" link. Follow the instructions and they will let you know if you qualify and what you need to do.
