Economic Impact Payments

Get Your Economic Impact Stimulus Payment

Congress recently passed the COVID-related Tax Relief Act, which includes a second round of stimulus payments to eligible recipients. 

Self-Help is here to make sure you are able to access funds from your payment as quickly and smoothly as possible. 

Not sure if your payment has been issued yet? You can use the IRS's Get My Payment tool to check the status of your payment.

Receiving Your Payment by Direct Deposit

If the IRS has information about your Self-Help Credit Union account, then the IRS will deposit the payment directly into the account. The IRS could have that information from your 2019 tax return and/or the account number used in the previous stimulus payment program.

You can check your account using online, mobile, or audio banking to see whether the deposit has been made. The payment will appear in your account summary as “IRS TREAS 310 XXTAXEIP2” or something similar.

If the IRS sends your payment via direct deposit, then you do not need to do anything. You can use the IRS's Get My Payment tool to check the status of your payment.
