RECEIVING STIMULUS PAYMENTS FASTER1 WITH ECHOPAY
Many EchoPay customers will be receiving economic relief under the Cares Act. Your stimulus payment could come in two different forms: a direct deposit to an account and routing number (like the one your EchoPay provides), or a paper check.
EchoPay allows you to receive your payments faster than waiting for a check. We provide you with your routing and account number so you can receive your stimulus payment directly to your EchoPay account.
HOW CAN I RECEIVE MY STIMULUS PAYMENT TO MY ECHOPAY CARD?
To make things simple for you and to get your payments to you faster than a check, the IRS has two websites where you can enter your EchoPay account and routing numbers in order to receive a direct deposit:
For tax filers: The IRS’ “Get My Payment” allows people who didn’t include direct-deposit info on previous returns to enter their EchoPay account and routing numbers and get paid electronically—rather than waiting weeks a check. Click here
For non tax filers: The IRS has a website available for Americans who normally don’t file taxes register for a government stimulus payment. If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident who made less than $12,200 (or $24,400 as a married couple), or otherwise weren’t required to file a federal income tax return in 2019, you can apply for the stimulus payment by submitting your EchoPay account and routing numbers to the IRS here.
