Once you open the letter with the EIP card inside, you will need to follow these steps to activate your card. If you received a card for the first stimulus payment, it will NOT be reused for this new stimulus payment. You will receive a NEW EIP card.
Step 1: Call number #1-800-240-8100
Step 2: It will ask you which language English or Spanish.
Step 3: It will ask you: Activate Card or Customer Service, press one; It will ask you if the card is damaged or stolen/lost, press two. (see Vlog on stolen or lost cards)
