Government stimulus payments
The right information for important decisions
If you haven't already done so on your tax return filed in 2018 or 2019, providing the account and routing number for your checking, savings or money market account would be the fastest way to receive your stimulus payment. Be certain to enter your Direct Deposit information at this IRS website to ensure you get your Economic Impact Payment promptly. If you have already provided your account information, you can also confirm the direct deposit info that the IRS has on file for you.
Not sure where to find your routing and account numbers?
On personal checks your account number and routing number are separated by a non-numerical symbol. The routing number is the first nine-digit code on the bottom left-hand side of your check. Your account number is the next set of numbers to the right of your routing number.
You can also find your account number in Online Banking by accessing the Account Summary section. Next to the last four digits of the account number, click Show to obtain your full account number. Learn how to find your account number in Mobile Banking here.

FAQS about stimulus payments
This website created by the American Bankers Association® contains frequently asked questions regarding the Economic Impact Payments. The topics include information on receiving your payment, eligibility, and more.
No. A Payment made to someone who died before receipt of the Payment should be returned to the IRS by following the instructions in the Q&A about repayments. Return the entire Payment unless the Payment was made to joint filers and one spouse had not died before receipt of the Payment, in which case, you only need to return the portion of the Payment made to the decedent. This amount will be $1,200 unless adjusted gross income exceeded $150,000. If you cannot deposit the payment because it was issued to both spouses and one spouse is deceased, return the check as described in Returning the Economic Impact Payment section on this page. Once the IRS receives and processes your returned payment, an Economic Impact Payment will be reissued.
The Bureau of Fiscal Services has cancelled outstanding Economic Impact Payment (EIP) checks issued to recipients who may not be eligible, including those who may be deceased. Recipients should still return these checks as described in Returning the Economic Impact Payment section on this page.
