Somewhere once I read that you are more likely to get divorced then change bank accounts.  

So true.  Once they have you all linked up, you are doomed.

I'm confused. My routing number on my checks and deposit slip has the same routing number on them? Yours should also be the same?

You will probably have to call them. I would not wait I would call now.

@89135   I had just completed my info before coming here and seeing this thread. I notice there is an FAQ's page (saw the link while giving my direct deposit info) but I didn't click on it. Have you tried there to see if anyone has asked what to do if wrong info entered?

 

If I had to guess I would say it would be a very long hold time trying to call the IRS this week/month. You might be better off waiting until tomorrow to re-enter. Sorry that happened. 

 

 

@colleena  I wanted to make sure you knew that the link had been activated on the IRS website. Can't remember if it was friends or family you were trying to help, but it's there now and you can upload their direct deposit info.

@89135,,  the routing number may not be a problem.  Do a search on the phrase:  bank deposit slip routing number different from check routing number

 

You should get a lot of returns, some that are general information and perhaps even one from your specific bank.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

My bank informed me that if you get your SS check direct deposit, the check would come that way.  I don't expect to get anything because I don't have to pay taxes.  Very low income.

If you are getting monthly Social Security you don't need to do anything. Your check will be direct deposit.
