IRS Economic Stimulus Payments 

The US Government is sending a second round of economic stimulus payments to eligible individuals

The economic stimulus payments will be processed in three ways: Direct Deposit, Debit Card or Treasury Check.

Direct Deposit If you selected the direct deposit option on your most recent IRS tax return, your stimulus payment will be sent electronically to the same account where your refund was deposited. If that account is closed, you should receive a check in the mail.

Treasury Check If you requested a treasury check for your last tax refund, the IRS will mail a check to the address on your last tax return. Checks will be mailed throughout the month of January. Paper checks can be deposited by using the Mobile Deposit feature in our mobile application, at a EFCU ATM, at a branch or at the drive-up window.

Will I receive a Treasury check or a debit card? For those who don't receive a direct deposit by early January, they should watch their mail for either a paper check or a debit card. To speed delivery of the payments to reach as many people as soon as possible, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service, part of the Treasury Department, will be sending a limited number of payments out by debit card. Please note that the form of payment for the second mailed Economic Impact Payment (EIP) may be different than for the first mailed EIP. Some people who received a paper check last time might receive a debit card this time, and some people who received a debit card last time may receive a paper check.

IRS and Treasury urge eligible people who don't receive a direct deposit to watch their mail carefully during this period for a check or an EIP card, which is sponsored by the Treasury Department's Bureau of the Fiscal Service and is issued by Treasury's financial agent, MetaBank®, N.A. The EIP Card will be sent in a white envelope that prominently displays the U.S. Department of the Treasury seal. It has the Visa name on the front of the Card and the issuing bank, MetaBank®, N.A. on the back of the card. Information included with the card will explain that this is your Economic Impact Payment. More information about these cards is available at

Keep your personal information secure and remember that EFCU, or the IRS, will never call, email, or contact you via social media asking for your personally identifiable information or sensitive information.

To check on the status of your stimulus payment, please visit the U.S. Department of Treasury website –
