How Can I Get My Stimulus Payment on Stash?

 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. government is sending up to $1,200 payments to citizens. If you already signed up to direct deposit your tax refund into your Stash banking account when you filed your 2019 taxes, the relief money should also be deposited into your Stash account. If you’re eligible to receive the payment, it will be deposited automatically—you don’t need to do anything further. If you haven’t filed your 2019 taxes yet, the IRS will use information from your 2018 return. If you haven’t filed either your 2019 or your 2018 tax return, you can also go to the IRS CARES Act online portal once it is live and provide your Stash banking account and routing number to make sure that your stimulus check is deposited into your account1.

If you qualify for a payment, consider setting up a direct deposit to Stash—you can get your money faster than waiting for it in the mail.

How do I set up direct deposit for my stimulus check?

 

If you don’t have any direct deposit information currently on file with the IRS, you’ll be able to submit or update your information via an online portal sometime in the next few weeks on the IRS website1.

In the meantime, If you qualify, you can log in to view your Stash banking account information for direct deposit. You’ll need your Bank Account Number and Bank Routing Number. You can find this by navigating to your app, clicking on the “Spend” tile at the bottom navigation of your screen, clicking on the Gear icon on the top right, and clicking on “Account and Routing Numbers”.

When will I get my stimulus check?

 

The Treasury is expected to start sending out checks the week of April 13. If you haven’t signed up with the IRS for direct deposit of your tax refund for the 2018 and 2019 tax years, your check will be sent by mail, and that could take longer. In the coming weeks, the Treasury also plans to develop a web-based portal, which will let individuals provide their banking information to the IRS online, so you can receive payments immediately as opposed to waiting for a check in the mail.
