I think I discarded or destroyed my Economic Impact Payment (EIP) card, what should I do?

Based on information from MetaBank® (the bank issuing the EIP cards), if your EIP card is discarded or destroyed, call the Customer Service line at 1.800.240.8100 (TTY: 1.800.241.9100). Select the “Lost/Stolen” option.

Your EIP card will be deactivated to prevent anyone from using it and a new replacement Card will be ordered. Your first reissued Card will be free. A $7.50 fee will be applied for each additional reissued Card.

Review the materials included with your card or see the Cardholder Agreement online at for more information.
