If the card is tied to an active bank account, you may receive your stimulus payment on your card. If the IRS attempts a direct deposit and it doesn’t go through for some reason – maybe the account is closed or no longer active – the payment will be delivered by mailed check to the most up-to-date physical address on file for you (from either your 2019 or 2018 tax return, whichever is more recently filed, or the address on file with the U.S. Postal service.) Use the IRS’s Get My Payment tool to track your EIP.
