ASSISTANCE FOR BUSINESS MEMBERS

The IRS is currently sending the second wave of stimulus checks through direct deposit as well as physical checks or EIP debit cards through the mail.
Eligible taxpayers who have direct deposit set up with the IRS will receive their funds in the account they used to set up direct deposit; while those without IRS direct deposit will receive their payment in the mail.
The direct deposit payments may take several days to post to individual accounts. Some Americans may have seen the direct deposit payments as pending or as provisional payments in their accounts before the scheduled payment date of January 4, 2021, which is the official date funds are available.
Paper checks also began going out and will continue to be sent through January. Some people will be mailed debit cards in January, and the IRS urges people to carefully check their mail. Mailed payments will require more processing and mailing time. Those who reside abroad will have longer wait times for checks as disruptions to air travel and mail delivery in some countries will slow delivery.
The IRS emphasizes that there is no action required by eligible individuals to receive this second payment. You may check the status of your payment and whether you will receive one by using the Get My Payment tool on IRS.gov.
If you have received an EIP card, you will need to activate it using the phone number provided on the card, and may use it to make purchases online or in-person anywhere Visa® debit cards are accepted, as well as use it to get cash at any in-network ATM.

Be on the Lookout for Scams
With more people at home anxiously checking the news, email and website scams are unfortunately on the rise. Keep an eye out for these common scams related to COVID-19, and visit our Security Center for more tips on keeping your information safe.
As credit cards scams have also increased, we are excited to offer a fraud text alert service. Members will receive notification if there has been suspicious transaction on their debit or credit card, and will be able to respond “Yes or No” to whether they performed the transaction. This will help us help you stop card fraud before it’s too late.
If you require immediate assistance, do not hesitate to contact us through Live Chat or by phone at 800.936.7730 (U.S.) or 00800.4728.2000 (Int’l).
