Lots of people just got this email. Seems anyone without a history of direct deposit transactions should have gotten the email. I guess if you got the email then you know for sure you are eligible (?).
It’s a hassle for some to change their direct deposit, but could be worth it for the bonus. You need to get the first direct deposit by 12/31, and then the second one from the same employer within 31 days of the first.
