   Did you know …

that some stimulus checks will come in the mail on a VISA prepaid debit card?

The government is sending some people Economic Impact Payment Cards if they qualified for a stimulus payment and the IRS couldn’t direct deposit the payment. The Economic Impact Card will come in a plain envelope from “Money Network Cardholder Services” along with instructions for activation, fees, and a note from the U.S. Treasury. There are ways to check your balance, withdraw cash, and transfer the money into a personal account without paying any fees. Check out our “6 Tips to Avoid EIP Card Fees” on MontanaLawHelp.org.
