Second Round Of Stimulus Payments Are Arriving

If you’ve received a pre-paid debit card with a note that it’s your federal stimulus payment, it’s legit.  The BBB says they’ve been getting a lot of calls about people reporting alleged bunk cards but the government moved the payments to cards to get the money out faster.

Also, the IRS has noted on their website that the Economic Impact Payment Card will arrive to your mailbox in a plain envelope reading “Money Network Cardholder Services”.  Here’s hoping you won’t be knee deep in a dumpster hunting down your money.

The IRS website states:

“Some payments may be sent on a prepaid debit card known as The Economic Impact Payment Card.

The Economic Impact Payment Card is sponsored by the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service, managed by Money Network Financial, LLC and issued by Treasury’s financial agent, MetaBank®, N.A.

If you receive an Economic Impact Payment Card, it will arrive in a plain envelope from “Money Network Cardholder Services.” The Visa name will appear on the front of the Card; the back of the Card has the name of the issuing bank, MetaBank®, N.A.

Information included with the Card will explain that the card is your Economic Impact Payment Card.
