Can't access online banking to check for coronavirus deposit? You're not alone
By: York Daily Record
With direct deposits of stimulus checks hitting millions of U.S. bank accounts Wednesday, people are reporting difficulty accessing online banking.
Facebook users have reported issues logging into their accounts online with several banks, and the internet outage aggregator downdetector.com is reporting connectivity issues with US Bank, PNC, BB&T CapitalOne, Citi, Santander and more.
BB&T, for example, has a message on its home page indicating issues with online banking: "We are aware of an issue impacting your ability to access our digital banking services. Thank you for your patience while we work quickly to resolve this issue."
For now, waiting for the issues to resolve is likely the only thing people can do if they can't connect.
Americans who have given the IRS their direct deposit information began to receive the funds on Friday. About 80 million taxpayers should be getting the money through direct deposit by Wednesday.
Many taxpayers receive $1,200, though families filing jointly and with children might see more.
