At this time, the IRS is not accepting any new banking information to receive the second stimulus check through the Get My Payment tool. However, this tool may be available for you to receive a third stimulus check, if one is approved. If this happens, you will need to have certain information on hand so that they can make a direct deposit.
Next, we tell you what data is this and where you can find it
Banking website: your bank’s website may show your account numbers and the routing number that you must give the IRS. Log into the account you want to use and find the numbers you need there.
Bank App: If your bank has an application, it may also show your account details here. In the app, log into your account that you want to use to see the data you’ll need for direct deposit, as reported by CNET.
Printed check: If you use checks, at the bottom of these, you will probably see three sets of numbers: The first set of nine numbers is your routing number. The second set of 8 to 12 numbers is your account number. You don’t need the third set for direct deposit, as it is the number each individual check carries.
