Economic Impact Payments
The IRS has begun the process of distributing funds for the Economic Impact Payment to people who have bank account information on file with them, and they have stated that the deposits will continue in the days ahead. If you qualify to receive a stimulus check through direct deposit into your account, the deposit will work similarly to a payroll deposit and will automatically be deposited into your account. You can log in to Digital Banking to view the amount once the credit union has received the deposit from the IRS. We recommend that you set up an eAlert to tell you when the deposit posts to your account. For step by step instructions on how to set up an eAlert, please reference our Digital Banking Guide.
While we are here to help you, there is no need to call us. Your financial institution has not been provided additional information about your eligibility for receiving the Economic Impact Payment or the time frame in which you will receive it.
