Receiving Your Stimulus Payment
Direct Deposit (ACH)
For those receiving a second stimulus payment, the IRS will automatically deposit the money into the same account as the first stimulus payment. If your direct deposit details have changed, you can visit the IRS's website to update your information.
For Legacy Inspirus Members:
For members who have transitioned from Inspirus, the direct deposit will still work automatically, even if your account information changed as a result of the November 2020 merger.
If you receive your check by mail, you can conveniently deposit it from home using Mobile Deposit with the Xpress Mobile Banking app.
You can also deposit your check at a network ATM, at one of our drive-thru locations, or deposit your check in-person at your local Gesa branch. Check our Locations page for details.
When Will You Receive Your Payment?
The IRS will start sending payments the week of March 15, 2021. Americans should receive stimulus funds via direct deposit, a physical check, or a prepaid debit card as soon as March 17.
Protecting Yourself from Fraud
The IRS warns consumers to watch out for scams relating to stimulus payments. As a reminder, do not give out your personal or account information to anyone. Be on the lookout for suspicious links from emails you don't recognize. The IRS website is an excellent resource for updates and best practices.
