Frequently Asked Questions


Why aren't my funds available now?

When you log in to Digital Banking, the stimulus check may appear as "pending." This round of stimulus checks may remain as "pending" in your account for up to 7 days. If you look at the details of the deposit, there will be a date listed for the deposit to take effect. This date is chosen by the IRS and not OKCU. 

Why isn't there a pending deposit in my account?

You can use the Get My Payment tool on the IRS website to see the status of your stimulus check. 
  • If your status in Get My Payment reflects a direct deposit date, your payment will be deposited into the account listed.
  • If the status reflects the date your payment was mailed, the check will come in the mail and could take 3-4 weeks.
  • If it says "Payment Status #3 - Not available," you will not receive this stimulus check. You can claim the Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2020 tax return if this is the case. Learn more here.


Am I eligible to receive a stimulus check?

Please visit irs.gov to determine if you are eligible and how much you will receive if you are eligible.
 

How will I receive my stimulus check?

If eligible, your stimulus check will be deposited directly into the same banking account reflected on the return filed.

What happens if the IRS does not have my direct deposit information?

The IRS will send your stimulus check by mail. 

How can I check on the status of my payment?

To check on the status of your payment, the IRS is offering Get My Payment. This tool will provide people with the status of their payment, including the date their payment is scheduled to be deposited into their bank account or mailed to them.

I received an EIP Card for the previous stimulus payment. Will the new stimulus check be loaded onto the same card?

No, the new stimulus check will be sent on a new EIP card.

Can I use an EIP card for a cash advance?

We are able to take Stimulus Cards for cash advances. These card advances must be done in person, not over the phone, and we recommend the drive-through to limit exposure. Please have the following information ready:

  • Pin number
    • You will be required to enter a pin number on the key pad to process the advance.
  • Balance
    • You must know your balance. Check your balance when calling to activate/set PIN if you haven’t yet.
