As of 8:00am on 3/15/2021 we have started to see stimulus deposits being deposited into member accounts. Information received Saturday indicates payments will be sent out over the next two weeks, not all at one time.
Nearly all online and mobile banking providers across the country are seeing record-breaking online traffic as a large percentage of their customers check their accounts for their government stimulus payments.
To avoid delays regarding accessing your money or information about your check arriving at Kings Federal Credit Union, here are a few suggestions.
- Use Online Banking & Mobile Banking later in the evening when demand is lower. Systems for all institutions may be overwhelmed due to extremely high usage.
- Find the nearest fee-free ATM by using our ATM locator page on our website (www.kingsfcu.com). All CO-OP and Allpoint ATMs are fee-free. There are 15 in Hanford and 7 in Lemoore! You can check your balance and withdraw cash fee-free at any of these ATMs.
- Please allow extra time for your call to be returned by staff as we anticipate extremely high call volumes from members checking their balance and deposits.
- We ask for your patience as our staffing levels may be limited due to COVID19.
If you’re eligible to receive a payment, you may receive the funds in one of these ways:
If you are eligible for a payment, your payment will be deposited directly into the same account used when you filed your 2019 tax return and the account number used in the previous stimulus payment program.
Paper check or Debit Card in the mail
If you did not give the IRS your direct deposit account information through your federal tax return in the last two years, and have not provided the IRS with your information as a non-filer, you will likely receive a US Treasury check or debit card. The check or card will be mailed to the address on file at the IRS from the prior year tax return.
How you can help protect yourself from fraud
If you receive a suspicious email or text message, don’t respond, click on links, or open attachments. If we reach out to you by phone, we won’t ask for confidential information — such as your card or account number, PIN code, or any password.
