As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities and our customers, we know it's even more important than ever for you to get the financial help you're counting on. Recently, the IRS began distributing Economic Impact Payments (or stimulus payments) to eligible Americans. While the process is currently underway, our Customer Care Center does not have any information regarding eligibility, timing or distribution of your individual Economic Impact Payment. These payments are initiated and distributed solely by the IRS. For the most up-to-date information on eligibility and payment amounts, visit the IRS website.
How do I get my payment?
The IRS will deliver payments via direct deposit and paper checks. Use the Get My Payment tool on the IRS website to enter your bank account info, check payment status and confirm your payment type.
I specified direct deposit for my stimulus check. When will I receive it?
The IRS has already started delivering payments via direct deposit on a rolling basis. According to the IRS, direct deposits will be made on Wednesdays. Please visit the IRS website and use the Get My Payment tool to check payment status and confirm your payment type. Please have your bank account information handy as you will be required to enter it.
I requested a paper check. When will I receive it?
The IRS expects to mail paper checks to you in the coming weeks. To check the status of your check, please visit the IRS website and use the Get My Payment tool to check your payment status.
What do I need to do?
Double check your bank account info or track your payment with the Get My Payment tool on the IRS website. Make sure you have your account routing number handy. The OceanFirst Bank routing number is 231270353.
Be on the lookout for scams or fraud.
Neither the IRS nor OceanFirst Bank will contact you by phone, text, email or social media asking for personal or bank account information related to Economic Impact Payments.
