Stimulus Checks, Direct Deposit and Eligibility Questions

Need to Check the Status of Your Stimulus Payment?

Visit the IRS.gov Get My Payment site to check the status. Please note that many people are currently visiting the site, so there may be delays. There are multiple rounds of payments and your payment may not have arrived today.

We’re currently receiving a large volume of calls requesting confirmation of payments.

If you see that your payment was scheduled for deposit on 4/15 and you don’t see it in your account, please confirm that you received either your most recent (2018 or 2019) refund, or your Social Security, Railroad Retirement and/or Social Security Disability via direct deposit to your Industrial account.

If your most recent direct deposit from the IRS (as noted above) went to your Industrial account and you’ve confirmed through the IRS site that your payment was scheduled for 4/15, but don’t see the payment posted to your account, give us a call at (360) 734-2043.

Continue reading for answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about how the CARES Act could impact you.

The CARES Act was recently signed into law and includes several provisions that may directly impact you including Unemployment and Stimulus Payments.

If you file for unemployment benefits, you can expect an extra $600 per week on top of your normal unemployment benefit for the next 4 months as a result of the CARES Act. The unemployment benefit time period has been increased to 39 weeks.

Most Americans are eligible to receive a stimulus payment from the government in the next few weeks. These payments are based on your most recent tax filing and will be paid the same way you received your tax refund or paid your taxes (either via Direct Deposit or by check). Individuals will receive up to $1,200, married couples up to $2,400 and parents will receive $500 per child dependent (children under 17).

You qualify for a full stimulus check if you file taxes and meet one of these qualifications:

  • You’re single and make less than $75,000.
  • You’re married and together, you make less than $150,000
  • You receive Social Security retirement or disability payments

The payments decrease proportionally $5 for every $100 of the taxpayer’s income over $75,000 and stop altogether for single workers making more than $99,000 ($198,000 for married workers and $218,000 for a family of four).

If you receive Social Security and don’t file a tax return, your check will be based on information provided by the Social Security Administration. If you don’t file taxes, the IRS will use your information on Form SSA-1099 or Form RSB-1099.

Anyone who is categorized as a dependent (including many college students) will not qualify for a check.
