Mailed Check Payments May Be Sent As Debit Cards
If Get My Payment says your Economic Impact Payment will be issued as a check, you may instead get a debit card in a plain envelope from “Money Network Cardholder Services." If you haven’t activated your card, you’ll get a follow-up letter. For more information, see Prepaid Debit Cards.
The IRS is committed to helping you get your Economic Impact Payment as soon as possible. The payments, also referred to by some as stimulus payments, are automatic for most taxpayers. No further action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees.
