Economic Impact Payment

The U.S. Federal Government began delivering "Economic Impact Payments", as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security ("CARES") Act, to eligible Americans. These direct cash payments to individuals and families are for financial relief during the coronavirus pandemic, and are sometimes referred to as "stimulus checks."

If you’re receiving payment by check, there’s no need to visit a financial center, simply deposit your check1 using our Mobile Banking app and get immediate confirmation that your check was received.

For help in locating more detailed information and answers to your questions, watch our Economic Impact Payment video or visit the link below.

Important update to the Paycheck Protection Program

On April 24, new legislation signed into law provides an additional $310 billion to the Paycheck Protection Program. The Small Business Administration has begun processing new applications, and we are submitting complete applications for our clients as quickly as possible. Our clients who have already submitted an application do not need to re-file a new application with us.

As new information about the Paycheck Protection Program becomes available, we’ll provide updates at our Small Business Resource Site.

See how CARES Act provisions may affect IRAs and retirement plans.

Keeping our financial centers open is an important part of our fundamental role in our communities. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of our teammates and clients at each location. We have taken proactive steps to enhance cleaning procedures to limit the risk of exposure, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and follow local restrictions on the number of clients that can enter at one time.

To perform enhanced, daily cleanings and best serve our clients, we temporarily modified our operating hours. Please use our Financial Center and ATM locator to check the hours and services available in your area.
