Why did I get a Stimulus Debit Card?
You are receiving a stimulus check because the IRS does not have direct deposit information for you.
Another reason may be that your financial institution rejected the stimulus payment from the IRS and returned the money to the IRS.
This could happen because the IRS has the wrong bank account information for you.
It could also be that you have closed that account.
If the account was closed, your payment will be reissued and mailed to the most recent address on file with the IRS.
Additionally, even if you haven’t given the IRS banking information, it’s possible you may still get a direct deposit.
Why You Should Check Your Card Balance Regularly
If you have a Stimulus Debit Card (EIP Debit Card) it is important to keep track of money coming into your account and how much is going out.
This is important, especially if you are using the card to make purchases.
