Starting next week, Americans can give IRS direct deposit information to get stimulus check faster
WASHINGTON As soon as next week, Americans will be able to provide the Internal Revenue Service with direct deposit information so they can receive their stimulus checks of up to $1,200, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told House Democrats in a call Wednesday evening.
Soon after Congress passed the $2 trillion economic stimulus bill last month, the IRS said it was working on an online portal that would allow taxpayers, once verified, to find out the status of their checks and, if necessary, to provide their banking information for direct deposit. Initially, it wasnt expected to be done until the end of April.

I was simply quoting a media source I came across.
One poster had asked the question a couple of days before, and at that time I did not know the portal was or would be available.
