For individuals whose stimulus check is being direct deposited into an abuser controlled bank account

  • Individuals can track their payment by accessing this page on the the IRS website, IRS Get My Payment
  • The current challenge is that most direct deposit payments went out this morning, Wednesday April 15, and the site where individuals can provide updated banking and account information is not slated to go live until Friday, April 17
  • It is also not clear what happens if a stimulus check is direct deposited into an account that is still active but a survivor is not longer on that account
    • We will continue to track these issues and update you with more information should remedies come forward

For individuals whose stimulus check is being directed to a bank account that is no longer active or has closed

  • The payment will be reverted to a paper check
  • The Treasury must send notice of the payment by mail to the individual’s last known address
  • The notice will include how the payment was made and the amount of the payment
  • The notice will include a phone number for the appropriate point of contact at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) if the individual didn’t receive the payment
  • Individuals can help make sure that checks go to the correct location by updating the address after a move
  • Most people do that on their tax return, but individuals can also submit a federal form 8822, Change of Address (downloads as a PDF)

It generally takes four to six weeks to process a change of address.

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have released a new web tool that will allow taxpayers to update their direct deposit information to receive their stimulus checks (Economic Impact Payments) more quickly. This tool, which is now available, is available to those taxpayers who have filed 2018 and/or 2019 tax returns and is separate from the tool used by non-filers (you’ll find more about the registration tool for non-filers here).

The Allstate Foundation recently announced that they will be providing $500,000 to help domestic violence nonprofits impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Through small, flexible grants to U.S. nonprofit organizations providing services to survivors of domestic violence, The Allstate Foundation will make a positive change in communities across the country. Oversight and implementation of the small grants program will be provided by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV). For more info, visit NNEDV.org/EmergencyGrants. THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 2020.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses and nonprofits keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program, the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to eligible organizations.

Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.

The administration soon will release more details including the list of lenders offering loans under the program. In the meantime, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has issued this guide to help organizations understand what to expect and prepare to file for a loan.
