As part of the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulus), the US Government will be issuing millions of Americans economic stimulus payments beginning April 15, 2020. 

Mid-Illini Credit Union has no information regarding any member's eligibility or payment status.

Below are some resources that will help you determine your eligibility, the amount of money you can expect and how and when you are likely to receive it. 

 

WILL I RECEIVE A PAYMENT?

Eligibility is determined by your IRS income tax status and is based on your 2019 income tax status, if you have filed. If you have not filed your 2019 income taxes, eligibility will be determined by your 2018 income tax status. 

You are likely to receive an economic stimulus payment if: 

  • your IRS income tax filing status is single or married and filing separately, and you earned less than $99,000. 
  • your IRS income tax filing status is head of household and you earned less than $136,500. 
  • your IRS income filing status is married and filing jointly and your combined income is less than $198,000.
  • your income is above $75,000 as an individual or above $150,000 as a joint filer, your payment is reduced by $5 for each $100; or
  • you don't typically file taxes and receive Social Security Benefits from the Social Security Administration or Social Security Equivalent Benefits from the US Railroad Retirement Board.

WILL I RECEIVE A CHECK OR DIRECT DEPOSIT? TO WHAT ACCOUNT WILL MY PAYMENT BE SENT? 

The IRS will deposit your stimulus payment into the account you designated to receive your most recent tax refund - 2019 or 2018. Please consult your tax return to determine where your payment will be sent. If you have received your most recent refund by check, the IRS will issue you a check and mail it to the address on that return.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE PAYMENT? 

The US Government will begin direct depositing payment as of April 15, 2020. Not everyone who is eligible for payment will receive their payment on this date. 

Information regarding the status of your payment and whether more information may be required in order to issue your payment is ONLY available through the IRS.
