Stimulus Relief Checks and What You Should Know

  1. As long as you filed taxes for 2018 and/or 2019, the federal government likely has the information it needs to send your money. If you haven’t filed taxes recently, you will need to submit a simple tax return to get your check. Read more on who’s eligible here.
  2. Do not give anyone your personal information to “sign-up” for your relief check. There is nothing to sign up for. Anyone calling to ask for your personal information, like your Social Security number, PayPal account, or bank information is a scammer, plain and simple. Also be on the lookout for email phishing scams, where scammers pretend to be from the government and ask for your information as part of the “sign-up” process for the checks.
  3. To set up direct deposit of your check, communicate only with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at irs.gov/coronavirus. Remember, you only need to do this if you didn’t give the IRS your credit union account information on your 2018 or 2019 tax return. In the coming weeks, the IRS will be setting up an online form available through irs.gov/coronavirus. You should never respond to an email, social media post, text messages or phone calls.
  4. There is no early access to this money. The timeline for this process is not exact, but it looks like the distribution of funds will begin within the next few weeks. No one should be contacting you through an email, social media posts, text messages or phone calls.

To get official updates and more information, visit the IRS’s page on economic impact payments. And if you come across a scammer trying to take your check, report it to the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/complaint.
