In addition, the IRS and the U.S. Treasury Department will begin sending economic stimulus payments on preloaded debit cards this week to those who have still received their first check, the Trump administration said. This will allow recipients to withdraw funds from in-network ATMs, make purchases, and transfer funds to their personal bank accounts without incurring any fees.
