8 Million Americans receiving EIP

The cards follow millions of payments already made to those who had signed up for a direct deposit or requested a paper check.

The IRS and Treasury now encourage those looking to receive a card to keep eyes peeled for a white envelope displaying the U.S. Department of the Treasury seal. 

EIP cards feature a Visa logo on the front of the card and the issuing bank name, MetaBank, on the back.

Eligible Americans will receive a card if the government does not have any banking information on file. They are sent to the most recent address the IRS has for the taxpayer. 

If you believe you accidentally threw your card away, there is no need to worry. You can immediately deactivate the card and order a replacement card at no extra cost.
