  1. THE IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” WEBSITE KEEPS GIVING ME ERROR MESSAGES! Do you or your colleagues have any insights re the IRS “GET MY PAYMENT” website? I SUCCESSFULLY entered my DOB, street address and Zip Code into “GET MY PAYMENT”. However, this time it REJECTED my 9-digit SSN which I entered as: xxxxx6892. Note that the above St. ADDR. / ZIP is a temporary address for an AZ cancer clinic where I’m currently being treated. Also, note that I successfully received my previous two stimulus checks via DD using the above information (bank’s routing / acct numbers haven’t changed). I called the IRS, IRS Fiscal Services Bureau and the Treasury Dept., and all I got were referrals back to IRS.GOV which directed me to contact my local IRS. Thanks for your help.
