In the News:


Stimulus Payment Deposits: There is some discussion in Washington DC about another round of Stimulus Funds. If this happens, it is our understanding that the Department of Treasury (IRS) will, again, release stimulus funds to those who qualify in the same method as done previously. If you filed your taxes electronically, your stimulus funds will be deposited by the IRS electronically to the account number and routing number you specified in your return information. If you requested a treasury check for your last tax refund, the IRS will mail a check to the address on your last return.


If you have questions about your IRS stimulus payment, we encourage you to visit the IRS website for more information and to see if you qualify to receive a deposit.


NOTE: New Horizons Credit Union is not able to determine when or if you will receive a payment.
