Here’s what you can do in the IRS Child Tax Credit Portal

The Child Tax Credit Update Portal allows you to verify your family's eligibility for advance payments of this tax credit and add or update a bank account to receive your payments quickly by direct deposit. You can also use the portal to unenroll from receiving the monthly payments if you are not eligible or prefer to receive the full amount of your credit when you file your tax return next year.

Later features will allow you to update changes to family status and income.

For more information see the Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021 page on IRS.gov.
