Receiving Economic Impact Payment from FDIC is designed to encourage unbanked people to open a bank account without going into a bank branch, as they receive the economic impact payment. It includes a video and connection to lists of banks that allow online account opening, as well as some that allow people to open an account now and fund it later with the EI deposit.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is committed to supporting Americans and created resources that shares steps Americans can take to receive an economic impact payment electronically if  they do not have a bank account.
