How to Setup an Alert for Your Stimulus Payment

Get notified as soon as your stimulus payment has been deposited into your account.

Account Alerts Can Notify You When Your Stimulus Payment is Deposited

You can setup up an alert for your stimulus payment in our Online Banking system. This allows you to choose the type of alert you will receive the moment your payment is in your account. Follow these easy steps:

  • Login to Online Banking and select (1) Services and then (2) Alerts from the menu, then choose (3) Select History Alert from the 'New Alert' drop-down list.
Account Alert Setup
  • Select your account you used for your 2019 (or 2018, if you haven't yet filed) federal tax return payment or deposit, highlight (4) Transaction, and then select (5) Description.
Account Alert Setup Step 2
  • Enter the term (6) "IRS" in the description field.
Account Alert Setup Step 3
  • Choose the (7) Delivery Method you wish to receive the alert. You can receive a secure message, phone call, email or text message. The information needed to complete the message will pop up.
    Note: The (8) frequency setting of Every Occurrence can be selected or not, based on your preference. Deselecting this option means you will receive this alert only the first time this type of transaction is presented.
Account Alert Setup Step 4
  • Click (9) Save.

Now you no longer need to continuously check-in on your stimulus payment. As soon as it is deposited, you will receive an alert in the method you chose.
