There's new information coming out regularly about economic stimulus payments or stimulus checks from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This page provides you with resources and information about the stimulus payments and how to protect yourself from stimulus payment scams.
If you don't see your stimulus payment in your account, it's best to use the new IRS "Get My Payment" tool on their website to check your payment status.
Stimulus payments from the IRS are received and posted once a week, so it is not necessary to continue to check your bank account throughout the day. If you don't see your payment, check the IRS site for a payment status update. You can also confirm your payment type (direct deposit or check) using this website.
If you need to provide the IRS with your bank account information for direct deposit, please see below for how to obtain the information needed.
We appreciate your patience. Online Banking and mobile banking may be a little slower than normal or access may be limited at peak usage times as customers are checking their account for their payments. We highly recommend using the "Get My Payment" tool from the IRS for status.
If you are already receiving your tax refund electronically, you don't need to do anything additional to ensure you'll receive your stimulus payment.
Providing your account and routing number for your checking, savings or other account allows you to get your stimulus payment in the fastest way possible. If you need to set up direct deposit with the IRS, you'll need to provide your routing number and account number. Please follow the steps below to access this information.
The Legend Bank routing number is 111903290.
Locating Your Account Number in Online Banking
Once you sign into Online Banking, click on one of your accounts on the "Home" screen, then select "More Details & Routing Numbers" on the right side, which looks like the menu below.
Once you have clicked "More Details & Routing Numbers", you can view your account number by clicking "Click to reveal" in the window that pops up. See below for an example of how this looks when it pops up.
The Legend Bank routing number is visible as well. Our routing number is 111903290.
Locating Your Account Number in Mobile Banking
You can view your account number by clicking on your account and selecting "Details", next to "Activity" just under your available balance once you are signed into mobile banking using our app.
Locating Your Account Number on Your Checks
If you'd like to find your account number on your checks, look at the bottom left corner of your check. The first nine numbers are the routing number. Our routing number is 111903290. The numbers next to that number are your account number and then your check number.
