We are still waiting for IRS guidance regarding updating or providing direct deposit information for the stimulus payments and how they will be distributed to these type of accounts.
We will have more information once the government finalizes the details.
In the meantime, you can visit the following links for the most recent updates:

IRS did not and still does not allow you to update bank info. My stimulus also went to Green Dot bank but I do not have a card w/ Green Dot. Their phone is an automated system and you cannot get to a person. I actually opened an acct with them yesterday hoping that they would find I have an acct now and put the funds in it. But my account still says $0. How do we get our $$? TURBO TAX, this is YOUR 3rd party vendor. YOU need to get with the higher ups and get us a way to contact them to find and retrieve our funds!
The first EIP --or stimulus check--- was issued in 2020 It was for $1200 for adults and $500 for a dependent under the age of 17. The IRS used information from either your 2019 or 2020 tax return to issue those checks so they could send them out in a hurry.
The 2nd EIP or stimulus was issued in late 2020 or early 2021 and was $600 for adults and $600 for dependents under age 17.
If you did not receive the 1st and/or 2nd stimulus check you can get it by filing a 2020 tax return and using the recovery rebate credit in Federal Review. It will end up on line 30 of a 2020 tax return and will be added to your refund (or reduce your tax due).
The 3rd EIP--or stimulus check-- was sent out in mid-March or later in 2021 and was for $1400 per person--adults and dependents no age limit.
If you did not get the 3rd EIP payment you can get it by filing a 2021 tax return and using the recovery rebate credit in Federal Review. The credit will go on line 30 of your Form 1040 and will add to your refund (or reduce your tax due).
Try checking your online account with the IRS (and if you filed a joint return—check for BOTH of you)
Does the IRS show that you received a $1400 per person stimulus or EIP check in 2021? Did you receive it? When you were asked on your tax return did you say no? Was there $1400 per person on line 30 of your tax return?
If the IRS says you got $1400 per person last year but you did not receive it you can have it traced.
LOST THIRD STIMULUS CHECK
If you need to trace a payment that the IRS says has been issued to you, mail or fax a completed IRS Form 3911, Taxpayer Statement Regarding Refund.
Got 2nd and 3rd payments into a bank account I informed to the IRS after filing taxes. Did not inform any bank account on my 2019 tax return. Only missing first payment. Filed several traces with the IRS and was told that the money had been deposited to an account in my name at Green Dot Bank. That account (and the money in it) is the one I am attempting to access.
