As of April 15, around 80 million Americans received their COVID-19 stimulus payment via direct deposit. The IRS has indicated that Americans with direct deposit information on file who have not yet received their stimulus payment should receive a deposit over the next two weeks.
Additionally, the IRS has a tool that allows you to track the status of your stimulus payment and/or update your bank account information. It can be found here.
If your First Financial Bank account was utilized on your most recent tax return (2018/2019) or if you signed up your First Financial Bank account for direct deposit for the stimulus payment, your stimulus payment will be direct deposited to your First Financial Bank account. For those that have not provided direct deposit information, either through the tool or a previously filed return (2018/2019), a paper check will be mailed in early May.
