Information Regarding Stimulus Checks

In response to COVID-19, the U.S. Government, through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), has begun issuing a third round of Economic Impact Payments (Stimulus Checks).  Eligible taxpayers will receive payments of up to $1,400 for individuals, $2,800 for married couples, and up to $1,400 for each qualifying dependent. 

The Government has informed us that payments are initialing being sent in the form of direct deposit to those who have filed their Federal Taxes electronically.  Others will receive Stimulus Checks through the US Postal Service at the mailing address on their Federal Tax Returns.

  • You can check the status of your Stimulus payment at the IRS web site listed below.  The site has been specifically designed to provide detailed information on payment qualifications and the status of your payment. 

CME CU has been and will continue to process electronic payments the very same day funds become available.  You can verify in real-time if the IRS has sent your payment to CME CU by logging on to our Online Banking service.
