We are here for our customers, even during times of uncertainty.

Update Jan. 5, 2021: The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Treasury Department have started delivering a second round of stimulus payments.


Many payments will be automatically deposited. Woodforest will notify you via email when a stimulus payment has been deposited to your account.

Economic Impact (Stimulus) Payments

For many taxpayers who qualify, the second round of Economic Impact (Stimulus) Payments provided by the U.S. Government (IRS) will be automatically deposited and no further action is required. Payments should be sent using bank account information from your 2018 or 2019 tax returns or from other government benefits (i.e., Social Security retirement) or if you set up an automatic payment for the first round of stimulus payments.


If you qualify but did not file a tax return or have not given the IRS your direct deposit account information in the last two years, those who qualify should either receive a U.S. Treasury check or a prepaid card. We understand the IRS started mailing paper checks on 12/30/2020, and we expect prepaid debit cards to begin mailing in early January.



Woodforest has processed all the automatic stimulus payments received from the IRS and U.S. Treasury department to date and customers who received automatic payments had access to those funds on January 1, 2021.


If we were unable to deposit the stimulus payment (due to incorrect posting information on the IRS payment), we returned the funds to the U.S. Treasury. The U.S Treasury may redirect the returned payment to you via check to the address they have on file, or you may need to request the stimulus payment as part of your 2020 federal income tax filing. We encourage you to review the IRS Second Economic Payment FAQ and consult with your tax preparer for more information.


Additional Resources: You can check on the status and method of your stimulus payment using the IRS's Get My Payment tool. Visit the IRS website for more information about qualifications, amounts, and receiving payments. Woodforest National Bank Routing Number information is available here.

COVID-19 Cyber Security

Important Message: COVID-19 Cyber-Security Scams

The Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) recently issued a Cyber Alert,(1) "Defending against COVID-19 Cyber Scams," reminding individuals to remain vigilant for scams related to COVID-19. Visit https://www.cisa.gov/coronavirus for more information from CISA.


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the Economic Impact Payments (Stimulus Payments) as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS will not call, text, email or contact you via social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the Economic Impact Payments. Visit https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payment-information-center for more information.


Email, Text, Social Media Scams

Be aware of cyber "actors" who have been sending emails containing malicious attachments and links to fraudulent websites to trick recipients into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes.

  • Customers should be wary about any email with a "COVID-19, Economic Impact Payment, Stimulus Payment” or related subject link, attachment or hyperlink. In addition, exercise caution on social media, in text, or if receiving calls containing pleas related to COVID-19.
  • If you receive a suspicious email or text message, do not respond, do not click on links, and do not open attachments.
  • Woodforest will never ask you for a debit card PIN, access code or online banking password.

Check Scams

The recently approved stimulus package will require that some payments be made by check to recipients. Please be aware of check scams.

  • The government (or your bank) will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account, credit card number, or any other personal private information.
  • The government will not ask you to pay anything upfront, such as a fee, to receive your money.
  • Any reports of money already available are not true. Be wary of anyone who tells you they can expedite or obtain a payment or loan for you.
