Yes, she can still receive her stimulus payment. According to the IRS, the information from her 2018 will be used to calculate the stimulus payment since she has not filed.

Thanks. It kind of cut me off, but my question is will it be deposited into the same account? I used the same bank account To file jointly as I did individually in 2019. Not sure how the deposit will work since we didn’t file together in 2019.

The IRS will use the bank information on your own 2019 tax return that you filed as married filing separate.  Each of you will receive a stimulus check based on the banking information on your individual tax returns.

The 2018 one you mean? I filed separate for 2019 and she has yet to file.
