Information about "Stimulus Checks"

One of the most important parts of the CARES Act stimulus package is the one-time payment given to all eligible individuals. This "economic impact payment" (as the IRS calls it), or "stimulus check" is expected to begin processing as early as Wednesday, April 15th. 

To help you prepare, we've put together a resource with information on:

Guidance for Your Accounts

Though the IRS is working out details for how Stimulus Checks will be disbursed and when, we have a few recommendations to help prepare. 

Direct Deposit

The IRS has reported your Stimulus Check will be made via direct deposit to the account where your 2018 or 2019 tax return was deposited, whichever is applicable. The IRS has promised an online process for reporting a new/different account number. You can watch for news on their website at www.irs.gov. When ready, you need our routing number, and your account number. Our routing number is 323075945. You can find your Providence FCU account number by logging into online or mobile banking.

Mobile Check Deposit

If you receive a paper check, you can use our mobile app to deposit it. Learn more about mobile check deposit here

ATM

Your debit card comes with convenience and access to over 90,000 ATMs nationwide. Many allow deposits. Find locations here.
