Economic Impact Payment on Prepaid Cards
If you recently received an Economic Impact Payment prepaid debit card from the government in the mail, this is money for you under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Do not throw this card away. You will need this card to access your Economic Impact Payment. You must first activate your card—by phone or online—before you can use it. Once activated, your money is safe and secure on the card. Be sure to immediately report if your card is lost or stolen.
