Web Portal for Direct Deposit of Second 2020 Stimulus Check [October Updates]

direct deposit stimulus checksWant to get your second 2020 stimulus check quicker than the first?  Here is show to get setup with direct deposit for the second stimulus payment.

There is a web portal to submit your direct deposit information to the IRS and, if you did not get it set up in time for the first stimulus check, you may want to setup direct deposit for the second stimulus payment, which will happen if the Heroes Act (read summary) or an equivalent passes the Senate, who are still negotiating as of October, 2020.

It might not be surprising that many people are confused as to whether their 2020 stimulus check will be direct deposited or if they will be receiving a check.

One of the reasons for this is that there are actually two web portals (discussed below) which can be very confusing.

Book Review: The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

book-review-the-wives-tarryn-fisher-by-richard-cummings-In this book review of The Wives by Tarryn Fisher, I’ll tell you three things: Why you’ll like it, why it will annoy you, and why it may surprise you.

First, let me confess a disservice I’ve done to Tarryn Fisher, the author of The Wives. I typically do not read books of a similar genre consecutively. I find this unfair to the second undertaking. It’s as if you’ve just scratched an itch that you’ve had for a long time… the second scratch will will never feel as good as the first.

Second Stimulus Proposal – the HEALS ACT- In Danger of Collapse

senate-second-stimulus-HEALS-mitch-mconnellWhile Americans continue to wonder when they’ll receive their second stimulus check, the Republican-filled Senate continues to argue over the details of their new stimulus package called The HEALS Act.

If you are wondering about how much a second stimulus check would be, the answer is that it would be roughly the same amount as the first stimulus check from the CARES Act, which was $1,200 for all qualifying Americans.

Normal People By Sally Rooney: A Book Review by Richard Cummings

normal-people-sally-rooney-review-richard-cummingsThe very reason I chose to read Normal People by Sally Rooney was the ordinary title — definitely not click bait!

Of course, I put more in my decision to read a book than a quick glance at the title but it was initially the title of Sally Rooney’s book — Normal People — that interested me.

I guess I had a contrarian thought after seeing the title: any author that takes such a big risk with an unappealing title must know the inner-beauty of their work.

Trump: “Very Generous” Second Stimulus Check [Watch Video]

trump-very-generous-second-stimulus-postIn an interview yesterday, President Donald Trump said that there will be a very generous second stimulus check of 2020 forthcoming.

What we don’t know is this: was he telling the truth and when would a second stimulus happen?

There are several factors that may indicate he was not telling the complete truth.

(We now know the truth.  Yes, Donald Trump was, like always, exaggerating.  See below what the “very generous” check will be.)

Firstly, his Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin continues to opine that a second stimulus should be more jobs-focused rather than a direct check to the American people.

The Best VPN for Bank of America [2020 Updates]

Bank of America VPN AccessIn this article, I’m going to tell you the best VPN software to use if you are a customer of Bank of America.

One of my gripes about VPN services is that they all generally claim to work with every website and, unfortunately, that’s just not the case.

For example, my go-to VPN for the last 3 years has been NordVPN.  NordVPN generally works with most websites, and I particularly like NordVPN with YouTube TV, but here’s what happens when I go to the Bank of America website when I’m using NordVPN.
