Expecting a Stimulus Deposit?

As part of the COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020, the federal government will provide a second round of stimulus payments to eligible recipients.

For the most current information and to track your payment, please visit IRS.gov

To check if you’ve received your payment, you can:

  • Log in to Xpress Digital Banking to confirm that your payment has been deposited.
  • Visit the IRS website and click on “Get My Payment” to check your payment status.

Our Member Contact Center is currently experiencing higher than usual call volumes. If you are inquiring about your stimulus deposit, we recommend trying the online options above for faster service.

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.

Paper Check

If you receive your check by mail, you can conveniently deposit it from home using Mobile Deposit with the Xpress Mobile Banking app.

Download the Xpress Banking app for Apple or Android.

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?

January 15 is the deadline for the new stimulus bill set by the IRS to send out payments. Payments have already begun being issued, and the IRS started sending payments the week of December 28, 2020. Americans should receive stimulus funds via direct deposit, a physical check, or a prepaid debit card in January 2021.

Members should start seeing the IRS payments post to their account as soon as January 4.  

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.
