The next round of Federal Government COVID-19 Economic Impact Relief payments have started to be sent by the Treasury Department. Payments received by direct deposit are expected to start processing the week of March 17, 2021. Payments sent via paper check or prepaid card will begin mailing on or after March 19, 2021.

We anticipate heavy call volumes during this time, which may result in longer wait times. We thank you for your understanding and patience. The best way to know when your deposit has posted is to set up deposit alert notifications on the mobile app or in online banking.


The IRS will not contact you by phone, text or email. Beware of calls, emails or texts from anyone claiming to be the IRS or any other government entity wanting to discuss your tax return or stimulus check.

Do not give out personal information or account information to anyone. Avoid emails or social media circulating asking recipients to send personal information in order to receive money from the government. You will not be asked to pay a fee or confirm any personal information prior to receiving stimulus funds.
