Government Stimulus Payments
With COVID-19 putting a financial strain on our families and businesses, I know many of you are counting on the government stimulus payments.
We wanted to give you up-to-date information on how to prepare for these payments. We also have easy-to-use tools and tips to help you manage your money during these challenging times. Please stay safe and take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
We urge you to go to IRS Economic Impact Payment Information Center for the most up-to-date answers to your questions, including:
Will I get a payment?
How much will it be?
How and when will I receive it?
Do I need to do anything to get it?
To Help You Prepare
We recommend that you:
- Sign up for Online Banking and Download our Mobile Banking App, if you haven’t already, you can check your transactions and see your stimulus payment from the IRS.
- Set up a deposit alert, so you’ll know when you receive your stimulus payment. When you set up your alert, make sure you choose the checking or savings account you expect the payment to be deposited to.
- Learn how to use Mobile Deposit so you can deposit checks with your mobile phone or tablet from our Mobile app.
When should I expect to see it in my account?
Based on the latest information we have, the IRS will be making payments as direct deposits starting this week, which you can see in your recent transactions on the Mobile app. They will mail check payments starting April 20. All payments will be in waves and continue over several weeks.
How will I know when my payment has been direct deposited into my account?
You can check your transactions on our Mobile app or online banking. We also recommend that you set up an account alert to tell you when deposits post to your account.
If I receive a paper check, how can I deposit it without coming to the banking center?
You can snap a picture of it and deposit it to your account using our Mobile Deposit in our Mobile Banking App on your mobile phone or tablet, or deposit it at our ATMs.
If you have any questions, please give us a call.
