The IRS has begun the process of distributing stimulus payments. For those without bank or credit union accounts previously filed with the IRS, the time is now to do so to avoid waiting months for a check (this week for those who’ve never filed taxes, next week for everyone else).
It’s not too late for those who have never given their account information to the IRS. And it’s not too late for those who are unbanked to open a bank or credit union account and get stimulus payments faster, more safely, and for free -- directly deposited into their account!
· Step 1: Get your bank or credit union account number. If you don’t already have one, open a safe and affordable certified Bank On account online.
· Step 2: Visit the IRS’ website page on Economic Impact (stimulus) payments and sign up with your account number (starting today for those who did not file a tax return in 2018 or 2019, and next week for everyone else).
