The first round of stimulus payments will start arriving into accounts starting on January 4, 2021. For online banking users who will receive their deposit by ACH, you can check for any pending deposits by logging into online banking and clicking on the tab at the top labeled View Holds and Pending ACH. From here you will be able to see if your current stimulus payment is processing and when it is expected to hit your account. Please note, these dates are not controlled by the credit union.
If you are not seeing any pending deposits in your ACH queue, you can also check the status of your stimulus payment by clicking here. Starting January 4, 2021, this website will become operational and should provide up-to-date details regarding the status of stimulus funds.
Follow these steps when checking on your stimulus status:
- Click the “get my payment” button.
- Click the “get my payment” button again, this time midway down the page.
- Click the “ok” button.
- Enter the required information
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
- Street Address
- Zip or Postal Code
- Click “continue“
From this point, you should see:
- Your payment status
- Your payment type
- Whether the IRS needs more information from you, including bank account information
