The first round of stimulus checks hit accounts on April 15, 2020 with more waves of stimulus checks scheduled to come. Here is what you need to know!
Eligibility: Only certain individuals are eligible to receive stimulus checks. To see eligibility requirements, please visit the IRS website. If you believe you are eligible and did not receive a check, it may be due to the fact that you are set to receive credit in a later wave. To see that status of your stimulus check please visit the IRS website.
Direct Deposit: If you had your tax refund made through direct deposit in 2018 or 2019 and are eligible to receive a stimulus check, the IRS will direct deposit into your account on file. If you did not use direct deposit and are eligible, you will receive a paper check. If you are set to receive a paper check but want the funds expedited to your account through direct deposit, please visit the IRS website and provide your Rockland Trust account details.
Electronic Banking: To see if your account was credited with a stimulus check, view your account history in Rockland Trust Online or Mobile Banking. If you get a paper check, you can always deposit the check through mobile banking with our mobile deposit feature.
Fraud: Scammers are likely to strike during this time and may try to get access to your funds. Remember, we will never reach out to you asking for sensitive account information. If you are suspicious of a call, email, or text please call our Customer Information Center at 508.732.7072 to verify any communications.
