Joint Return - 1 Receives SS - 1 Does Not - Do We Get Check DD?

My wife & I file a joint return - we usually pay so I have no idea if the IRS has our current Direct Deposit Banking info. 


I receive my SS by DD my wife (younger) has not filed for SS yet


Will the IRS DD both of our stimulus checks into my account - deposit mine & mail my wifes?

Have you visited the IRS site and looked at the information there? From what I read if your filed a joint return, provided a bank account for DD then the entire amount will go to that account.


The IRS does not have my direct deposit information. What can I do?

In the coming weeks, Treasury plans to develop a web-based portal for individuals to provide their banking information to the IRS online, so that individuals can receive payments immediately as opposed to checks in the mail.
