Important: Second Government Stimulus Payment Information & More!​

3 easy ways RushCard can help you quickly access the second Government stimulus payment and other Government benefits.​

1) Expecting a second stimulus payment? The IRS completed direct deposits of second stimulus payments as of January 5th, 2021. For many of our customers, if the IRS has your RushCard account information on file and you are eligible for the second stimulus payment, the IRS automatically deposited it to your RushCard account. However, if you are eligible for a stimulus payment and have yet to receive a deposit, please check IRS.gov for questions or more information. You may be receiving a paper check or debit card in the mail directly from the IRS, even if you previously received a direct deposit.

2) Need to get alerts for your second stimulus payment deposit? Log in to your account and activate Account Alerts or with the mobile app. Msg & data rates may apply​
