After the first stimulus payments, it’s time for another stimulus bill update, but the question is when do you get it, are you eligible, and how to deposit the sum in your bank account directly?
You will get answers to all these questions as you scroll down below.
What does the Second Stimulus Payment Include?
After the passing of the first stimulus relief package of $900 billion, it is now time for the Treasury Department and IRS to issue $600 stimulus payments to Americans qualified for it from January 15, 2021.
Some Americans report having received the checks prior, even to the day of New Year’s, effective from January 4, 2021.
The IRS has sent out $112 billion from the total sum of $164 billion promised payments. Suffice to say, the government has dispatched more than half of the checks to America’s population.
However, the rest who have yet to receive their stimulus paychecks are worried sick when they receive their bills. If you’re a non-filer or a taxpayer that uses third-party amenities or have recently switched bank accounts, you need to learn all the knowledge we have to offer to you.
So, here’s how you can, too, receive the stimulus bill update like the rest if you’re qualified for it.
Direct Depositing Your Second Stimulus Payment In Your Bank Account
Here we guide you through, step by step, the procedure to deposit your checks in your bank account directly as per your situation.
Step One: Filer of Previous Year Tax Return with Accurate Deposit Information
Your work here is done if you’ve filed your previous year’s tax returns with the IRS with correct credentials and details. So now all that you’ve got to do is wait.
Step 2: Non-filer of Previous Year Tax Return
You can now file your tax returns with the IRS electronically, but if you are a recipient of Social Security benefits, you might not be able to access such an option. Some websites on the internet that help you file tax returns virtually are also sometimes free.
Ensure that you have added your direct deposit details in this file—the option where they request your desire for a refund the direct deposit sends.
Step 3: Non-required Filers of Income Tax Returns
You’re not eligible to file for tax returns of the previous year if:
- You have an income under $12,200.
- You’re in a marriage contract and together with a file for a tax return, and adjoining your total income is below $24,400.
- You are employed and have no sense of income.
If your case is like one of the above and you are not required to file an income tax return, wait for the IRS opening of submissions. An option by non-filers and information request will appear that will require your details.
Details that you would need to give incorporate:
- Your complete name, present-date address, and email address
- Your date of birth and authentic Social Security number
- Bank details like type, account number, and routing number (if any)
- The IRS prescribed Identity Protection Personal Identification Number (IP PIN) formerly in the current year if you are an owner of one.
If you’re one of the many taxpayers who have seemed to misplace the Identity Protection PIN, there’s a total for you too. To retrieve the digits click on the tab that says “Get an IP PIN.”
- If you own a driver’s license or ID issued by the state
- Every eligible child’s name, social security number, and relationship with you or your partner during the year.
You are not to use this tool of assistance if someone else can pay your tax return.
Step 4: Social Security Receiver
Suppose you are a beneficiary of the Social Security insurance. In that case, the Treasury deems you suitable for the stimulus check; even though you might not be required to file an income tax return.
So the IRS will directly deposit stimulus payment in your bank account if they have the correct details.
Step 5: If You Changed Your Bank Accounts
If you seem to have changed your bank account since the last time you filed your tax return and the previous account is no longer running, the IRS would have no option but to mail you the stimulus check on that account.
How To Receive Payment and Provide Latest Bank Details
The Treasury made a tool over a website that says “Get My Payment.” Here you can add your information so that the IRS can access where to send you checks.
To get that, you need to follow the list of instruction listed below:
- Keep a check on your stimulus payment progress by clicking on the tool and allow it to provide the IRS your direct deposit information.
- Put in your bank account number.
- Write down your bank’s routing number.
- Don’t add a check number.
- In the end, don’t forget to cross-check the numbers you add so that there are hitches and there are no delays.
This way, you also can guard yourself against all threats of fraud and scams that target your receipt of stimuli payments.

- Your bank’s name
