How do I get my stimulus payment?
Most people don’t need to do anything to request the payment. The IRS will send your stimulus payment to the direct deposit information or mailing address they have on file.
Social Security/Railroad Retirement benefit recipients: If you didn’t file a 2019 or 2018 return and receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits, your stimulus payment can be based on that statement and you won’t need to file a return.
When will I receive my stimulus payment?
The IRS is determining the timing of the stimulus payments.
For direct deposit: The first stimulus payments were sent out by the IRS the week of April 13, and the IRS will continue issuing payments on a weekly basis going forward. Note: There are various factors that may impact when you receive your payment.
For mail: The IRS will begin issuing checks in late April, starting with households with the lowest Adjusted Gross Income. With approximately five million checks going out each week, the IRS expects it could take up to 20 weeks to issue all checks.
Will I get my stimulus check on my Emerald Card?
If you received your refund on your Emerald Card in the past, you might wonder if that’s where your stimulus check will be sent.
The IRS is determining when and how stimulus payments are distributed, and H&R Block is processing payments as soon as they are received, including depositing any payments made to Emerald Cards. We have been contacting Emerald Card clients with any information we have about their stimulus payment, including reminding Emerald Card clients who no longer have their card that we are here to help and will reissue cards so they can use their stimulus payment.

How can I provide my direct deposit information with the IRS for the stimulus payment and avoid a mailed check?
If you’ve received your refund by check previously or owed taxes when you last filed, you might be able to update your direct deposit information with the IRS using their Get My Payment site. By providing your information on the site, you might able to receive your stimulus payment by direct deposit once it is issued instead of waiting for the check to come in the mail.
How do I get my stimulus payment if I didn’t file a 2018 or 2019 return?
Because not everyone is required to file taxes each year, we understand that you may not have filed a return in 2018 or 2019. However, the IRS has stated that your stimulus payment may be affected if you have not filed for either of those years.
If you don’t receive Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits, we recommend you file one of those returns as quickly as possible.
