Preparing for Your Government Stimulus Payment

With the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, signed into law on March 11, 2021, the Federal Government is providing another round of stimulus payments for individuals meeting the qualifications. You can visit the IRS website for more information. You can also track your payment through the Get My Payment link on the IRS website.

Some payments may have begun arriving as early as March 12, 2021, with paper checks and EIP cards following afterwards. Therefore, customers may see the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments before the official payment date of March 17, 2021. 

We understand that you are counting on receiving your government stimulus payment as quickly as possible. Most recipients will receive their payment via direct deposit. Rest assured that your direct deposit will be available in your Investors Bank Account after the IRS issues your payment. 

You can check your account via online banking or the Investors Mobile App to see if your stimulus payment was deposited into your account. These are easy-to-use tools to help you gain immediate access to your account information. 

If you aren’t currently using these tools, download our Mobile App from the Apple Store or Google Play, or enroll in Online Banking. From either of these, you will be able to easily access your account to determine if your stimulus payment has been posted.

For customers who are receiving their stimulus payment via paper check:

Protect Yourself From Fraud:

The IRS urges everyone to remain on the lookout for scam artists who are using these payments as cover. The IRS will not call, text, email or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information. More information is available at the IRS site. If we reach out to you by phone, we won’t ask for confidential information — such as your card PIN, access code, or online banking password.
