IRS Stimulus Checks
Federal Government COVID-19 stimulus payment deposits will start posting by end of business day Wednesday, April 15, through the rest of the year.
If you are eligible for a stimulus payment and used direct deposit to get your 2018 or 2019 tax refund, the IRS will use that information to direct deposit your stimulus check into that same direct deposit account. If you did not use direct deposit in 2018 or 2019, the IRS has developed a portal at irs.gov/coronavirus, where you will be able to give them your bank information for direct deposit. The best way to know when your deposit has posted is to set up deposit alert notifications on the mobile app or in online banking.
If you are eligible, you did not use direct deposit for your 2018 or 2019 tax return, and choose to not input your information, your check should arrive by mail to your address listed on your tax return likely starting in May.

If you do receive your stimulus funds by check, you can verify its authenticity on the Treasury Department’s website. You can use mobile deposit to deposit it into your account without coming to a branch.
The IRS will not contact you by phone, text or email. Beware of calls, emails or texts from anyone claiming to be the IRS or any other government entity wanting to discuss your tax return or stimulus check.
Do not give out personal information or account information to anyone. Avoid emails or social media circulating asking recipients to send personal information in order to receive money from the government. You will not be asked to pay a fee or confirm any personal information prior to receiving stimulus funds.
