If you do receive your stimulus funds by check, you can verify its authenticity on the Treasury Department’s website. If you’re expecting a payment to arrive by check, use mobile deposit, an ATM, or a branch drive-thru to make your deposit. Keep in mind, branch lobby access may be limited at this time.

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.
