COVID-19 Economic Impact (Stimulus) Payments | Second Round

updated 1/7/21 


IRS Stimulus Payment Press Release 01/04/2021


The U.S. Government is currently issuing the second round of stimulus payments.

To check the status of your payment and get the most up-to-date information on stimulus payments, please visit the IRS site. If the site is offline, please continue monitoring for updates. Unfortunately, we do not know when a stimulus payment will hit your account.

A Few Things to Note:

  • H&R Block. On January 4, H&R Block announced that they are still processing payments from the IRS and that some customers who took a Refund Transfer may see an account number they don’t recognize on the IRS website. H&R Block further stated that they sent stimulus payments to the method customers chose for their Refund Transfer. If H&R Block prepared your taxes, you may contact H&R Block with questions.
  • Non-Receipt Claim. If you did not use H&R Block, but saw on the IRS website that your stimulus payment was deposited into the wrong account number, we cannot redirect these payment on our end so you will need to file a non-receipt claim with the IRS.

At Armstrong Bank, we're committed to you, our customers. We are truly stronger together.

Avoid Stimulus Check Scams

The IRS urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.
 

Armstrong Bank will never ask you for your personal or financial information (including PIN and one-time passcodes) via text, email, or unsolicited phone call.
