Status says ours will be mailed on the 26th. Last two were direct deposited. Strange.

DGF getting her stimulus on 3/24 with a direct deposit. Last time was a check. No logic.

Mine says to be mailed 3/26. I've never given them my bank info... just never seemed like a good idea. Always got checks, so I hope that trend continues (the plastic would require converting to currency and an ATM cash deposit, which is more trouble than taking a picture of the check with my phone).

Stim 3 Direct deposit on the 17th. Stim 1 was also direct deposit , but stim 2 was a check in the mail. Maybe because I owed the IRS that tax year?? Just guessing.

I got my first 2 stimulus payments by deposit and now the IRS site for some reason says I will get my next payment in the "mail" which with all the USPS problems I have been having means I may never get it...screwy. I have a special checking account that I set up to use for deposits where you have to enter checking info online--like PayPal, Stubhub, SS etc and that is what I used for the first 2 stimulus deposits. Oh well I don't need the money but I know some who definitely does need it and that is where it is going, when and if I get it.

I need to set up one of those. I wonder if the linked entity attempted to reverse a transaction where you'd already removed that money, if your bank would charge a nfs type fee.

We will be getting ours mailed on the 26th as well. First stimulus check was redirected to the account of the hackers who stole our 2019 refund. After much intervention we were issued a replacement check in October. We did not receive the second stimulus and claimed it on our recently filed taxes.

Seems like the IRS has added some software that decides that certain digital accounts receiving the money have an above average risk of being hacked? And then they mail it to a known address instead? Just a guess.

The IRS could be doing that with some digital accounts. Our 2019 hacking problem included the hackers changing our preferred method for the refund (check) to a digital account belonging to the hackers. The IRS then deposited the first stimulus payment into the hacker's account as well. We could not do anything to stop the stimulus payment being re-directed as the IRS was on their COVID vacation.

IRS site is showing a direct deposit is scheduled for 3/24. Payment 1 & 2 were also direct deposit. 2020 Taxes were filed on 3/03 and got refund on 3/16. Seems like things have been pretty smooth for us in regards to the IRS.

Thanks - I did call my bank this morning, and told them about the wrong account number on the stimulus direct deposit that was supposed to go to my account. Someone in their ACH dept. was able to track down the pending payment, and redirect it to my account. Yay!! I fully expected to be told there was nothing they could do about this, but to my surprise, they were able to fix it! Nice when something like this happens..........

Ours too. We received 1st and 2nd stimulus checks without any delays. We did file our 2020 taxes in feb and received our refund without issues, so I know we're on file. Guess we just have to keep waiting.

Follow up: The website showed the 24th, but it hit our account last night (23rd).

Ours hit within the last week. Asked about our checking balance today (while depositing a check) and both stimulus deposits were in there. Money moving at the speed of light. Amazing.

Alas, the payments of the borrowed money to fund these checks and other stimulus will happen not at the speed of light but over decades. I wont have to pay back much of it. That job will be up to my kid and my grand-kids. Lucky them.

That could depend on what happens to tax law on estates. YOU may not pay it back, but perhaps your estate will. Just a thought - unpleasant thought at that, so YMMV.

This is wierd, always pay IRA with paper checks.



First two payments came as paper checks.


Third payment hit my bank account the same day as our SS checks. Apparently there is no one size fits all.
