HelloCustomerand welcome to just answer.

Did you claim the children on your income tax return, and if so were they considered your qualifying child. If so then you should be able to get the stimulus payment as long as they were under 17.

Eligible Foster Child. A person is your eligible foster child if the child is placed with you by an authorized placement agency or by judgment, decree, or other order of any court of competent jurisdiction.
