Stimulus Payments Info

Atlantic Federal is here to empower you with the information you need to know, as your financial security remains a top priority. We'd like to share significant details with you concerning the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021

On March 11, 2021, the United States Congress approved, and President Joe Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 that includes a third round of stimulus payments (also known as Economic Impact Payments). Please be aware, eligibility criteria outlined in the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 differs from prior rounds of stimulus payments. Your eligibility is determined by the government. Click here to learn more about eligibility and payment amounts.

How You'll Receive the Payment

If you’re eligible to receive a payment, you will receive the funds in one of these ways:
  • By direct deposit into the bank account reflected or reported on your 2020 tax return. If you have not filed your 2020 tax return, the payment will be deposited into the same account used when you filed your 2019 tax return.
  • By paper check if you did not file a tax return or have not given the IRS your direct deposit account information in the last two years, you may receive a US Treasury check.
  • By prepaid card - instead of receiving a paper check, some customers will receive a prepaid card in the mail. Customers are able to use this card like a debit card or transfer funds from their Economic Impact Payment (EIP) card to their bank account from the Eipcard.com website, from the Money Network Mobile App, or by calling 1-800-240-8100.

Once the IRS begins to distribute payments, the IRS's Get MY Payment tool will be updated to reflect direct deposit or mailed payment date. The IRS is expected to update the payment status regularly.

*Note that payments are being distributed by the IRS in waves, so if someone you know has received theirs but you haven't yet, it is not a cause for concern.

  • [Tammy was very nice, as she professionally explained company procedure to me. Even though I didn’t totally agree at the first, I then understood how the Credit Union strives to protect the safety of our members' accounts.]

  • [April] Thank you for your help the other day with my account. I just wanted to say that the way the Credit Union is operating now is very convenient. I like having an appointment as it eliminates waiting to see a teller or a representative and is much more organized.

Adam embodied all of these characteristics and more!! He was always responsive and guided us through the entire process. Even during Covid practices, I never once felt that the personal touch was lost. We are extremely happy with the process and proud to be a member.

  • Yvana has been my go to person at the Credit Union for many years.  I know that whenever I have an issue I can always call on her at any time and she won't hesitate to help me out. Recently, my debit card was compromised and I noticed it after business hours so I wasn't sure of the proper protocol.  I called Yvana, she walked me through the entire process and I came in the next morning to resolve the issue with Eileen, who was also a great help.  The Credit Union is lucky to have such dedicated employees.

    Justin
  • I was worried about how I was going to fund some of my daughter's college tuition. Well thank goodness for Ms. Magaly. She told me to sit down, relax and explain my needs. I was truly expecting to be denied once again like at one of those banks that I've dealt with in the past.  Then she said "We have a loan that fits your needs and you qualify!"  All my worries suddenly went away. I can say that she definitely puts the members first.

  • I made it to the Kenilworth branch just before the 5 pm closing.  Even though it was late, Roberto patiently processed my loan – I’m sure on his own time. Then there’s Karina, who is so helpful and always has a smile. If I had a company, these people would be working for me!  You’re lucky to have staff members of this caliber!

    Ed
  • I am writing today to commend Lynn and express my gratitude for the high quality customer service she always provides whenever I call the Credit Union.  She is professional, courteous and patient.  I can feel her smile each and every time we talk on the phone.

    Elissa
  • I recently had an emergency and needed a Home Equity loan quickly.  My initial contact was with Aida and the loan was finalized by Sabrina.  This was a very stressful time for me and both of these women were professional, patient, knowledgeable and considerate. They answered all of my questions, explained the various options as well as the process.  They are an asset to the Credit Union.
