This information is current as of December 29, 2020. We will continue to update as we have more information.
On Sunday night, President Donald Trump signed the second COVID-19 relief bill. A second economic impact payment will be going out soon, and those who qualify as individuals will receive $600, qualifying couples will receive $1,200, and qualifying dependents (17 and under) get $600.
Who’s getting the second economic impact payment?
Those filing single making less than $75,000 and those who file as head of household making less than $112,500 are eligible for a check of $600. Those filing jointly and make less than $150,000 will get a total of $1,200. An additional $600 will go to families who qualify with children under the age of 17.
For individuals who make more than $75,000, heads of households who make more than $112,500, and joint filers who make more than $150,000, your economic impact payment will be even less. The further away from the cutoff amount, the smaller your economic impact payment will be.
Who is not getting the second economic impact payment?
Dependents older than 17, people without a Social Security number, and those with incomes above a certain limit will not receive a payment.
Your economic impact payment will decrease by $5 per $100 you make above the threshold. If you’re an individual who makes more than $87,000, you won’t get a payment. If you’re a couple with an income of more than $174,000, or ahead of household making more than $124,500, this time you will not receive a stimulus check.
When will I get my economic impact payment?
You may see this second check as soon as next week, as long as the government has your direct deposit information. If they don’t have access to your direct deposit, you can expect your check via the mail, which may take longer.
Do I need to do anything in order to receive the economic impact payment?
You don’t need to do anything if: you’ve filed taxes in recent years, are a disability or a Social Security beneficiary, or a disabled veteran. If you qualify for the economic impact payments, the government will use the information they have on file to send it to you.
If you received a paper check in the spring and haven’t updated the IRS with your direct deposit information since then, you will be receiving this second payment via USPS mail.
If you moved after April 2020: If you’ve changed addresses since the last round of payments or since you’ve filed your 2019 taxes, you should update your address with the IRS right away.
What if I need to update my bank account information with the IRS?
The IRS goes off the account you used to receive your 2019 or 2019 tax refund. If your direct deposit information has changed since then, you are unable to change it. The payment will be sent to the account that is on file. If it is a closed account, it will be rejected and then mailed to the address you have provided. The IRS doesn’t allow direct deposit account changes outside of filing your taxes to protect you from fraud.
Will I have to pay back the amount that was sent to me?
No, you will not have to pay back the economic impact payment. According to the IRS website, there is nothing that states that you will have to pay back the amount you receive.
An example directly from the IRS Website: If you received $600 for your child who, based on your 2018 or 2019 tax return met the qualifying child requirements and that child turned 17 in 2020 and no longer meets the qualifying child requirements, you will not be required to pay back the $600.
Or, if you received $600 for your child whom you claimed on your 2018 or 2019 tax return and you do not claim the child on your 2020 tax return because the child’s other parent claims the child, you will not be required to pay back the $600 even if the child’s other parent claims $500 for the same child on his or her 2020 tax return.

REG D: Six-Transaction Limit Suspended
During April, the Federal Reserve announced that it would provide relief from the six-per-month limit on transfers or withdrawals from savings accounts under Regulation D (Reg D), effective immediately. For the time being, you can now make unlimited transfers and withdrawals.
The interim final rule allows depository institutions immediately to suspend enforcement of the six transfer limit and to allow their members to make an unlimited number of convenient transfers and withdrawals from their savings deposits at a time when financial events associated with the coronavirus pandemic have made such access more urgent.
Resource One Credit Union is honoring the suspension as we know that, at this time, having easy access to your funds is more critical than ever.
If you have any questions, please let us know.

Here’s an Overview on Stimulus Checks
As part of the U.S. Government’s response to Coronavirus, COVID-19, many Americans across the country will be receiving stimulus payments. Here is what you need to know about your Economic Impact Payment.
Check on the status of your Economic Impact Payment
The IRS has created an online portal that enables you to check on the status of your stimulus check or to check your eligibility.
Who is eligible?
There is no minimum adjusted gross income threshold. However, the stimulus check amount phases out by $5 for every $100 above certain income levels based on your tax filing status:
- Single Filer: $75,000
- Head of Household: $112,500
- Married/Joint Filer: $150,000
The IRS is using information from 2018 and 2019 tax returns to process the payments. It says taxpayers who’ve yet to file a return this year should do so as soon as possible, and elect to receive the refund via a direct deposit. The information can then be used to distribute the stimulus payments. If you don’t file taxes but receive Social Security or disability your payments automatically be receiving a stimulus check.
You can use TurboTax’s 2020 Stimulus Check Calculator to find out if you qualify for a payment and how much you can expect.
If you haven’t filed your taxes this year the IRS is likely to send the stimulus check based on 2018 tax return. File your 2019 taxes with TurboTax today to get your maximum refund.
At what income level will I not qualify for a stimulus check?
- Single Filer: $99,000
- Joint Filer (no children): $198,000
How much money can I expect to receive?
- Individuals: $1,200
- Married Couples: $2,400
- Dependent Children: $500 (must be less than 17-years-old)
How will I get my check?
Direct Deposit: If you provided direct deposit information on your 2018 or 2019 income tax return, then the IRS already has your direct deposit information and your stimulus payment will be deposited to the account you provided for your tax return. Direct deposits are being received from the IRS every week through the end of the stimulus payment program.
Mailed Check: If you do not receive your tax return by direct deposit, then your stimulus check will be mailed to the address you noted on your most recent tax return for either 2018 or 2019 filing.
When should I receive my payment?
The IRS will begin sending paper stimulus checks as early as Thursday, April 9th. The plan is to send paper stimulus checks to taxpayers with the lowest adjusted gross income first. Therefore, taxpayers who earned less than $10,000 will receive a paper check first.
The IRS has released a Get My Payment portal where you can check to see if you qualify for a stimulus payment and when you will be receiving the payment.
April 15, 2020
Stimulus checks could be sent to some taxpayers as early as Thursday, April 9. If you filed your income taxes in 2018 or 2019 and provided your direct deposit information to the IRS, your stimulus check could be sent today. Estimated arrival time in your account could be on or before April 15, 2020.
April 24, 2020
The IRS will begin sending paper stimulus checks. The plan is to send paper stimulus checks to taxpayers with the lowest adjusted gross income first. Therefore, taxpayers who earned less than $10,000 will receive a paper check first.

Protecting Our Members
The Federal Trade Commission has issued a warning to consumers about scammers taking advantage of individuals surrounding Coronavirus fears. They are setting up websites to sell bogus products and using fake emails, texts, and social media posts as a ruse to take your money and get your personal information. Please remain alert to avoid possible scams and if you come across any suspicious claims, report them to the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.
Here are some tips to prevent from being scammed:
- Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Don’t let anyone rush you into making a donation. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
- Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. It could download a virus onto your computer or device. Make sure the anti-malware and anti-virus software on your computer is up to date.
- Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying that have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
- Ignore online offers for vaccinations. If you see ads touting prevention, treatment, or cure claims for the Coronavirus, ask yourself: if there’s been a medical breakthrough, would you be hearing about it for the first time through an ad or sales pitch?
Look for our latest updates on r1cu.org, as we keep you updated on how Resource One is responding to the evolving Coronavirus / COVID-19 situation. You can also learn more about how to keep you and your family safe at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
