    Managing your money without a bank account is doable. But it can pose challenges — and the COVID-19 pandemic has only added more. Your economic impact payment might’ve arrived weeks or months after others’ did, in the form of a check or prepaid debit card, because you couldn’t choose the faster delivery option of direct deposit into a bank account.
