Preparing for Your Government Stimulus Payment We understand that you may be counting on receiving your government stimulus payment as quickly as possible. Rest assured that government stimulus direct deposits will be posted to your Investors Bank account as we receive your individual payment. To find out if you are eligible to receive a payment, check your payment status, or confirm your payment type, visit the IRS Economic Impact Payment website.
