The COVID-19 pandemic has created difficult financial situations for many of our Members. We’re here to help. Centra is focusing on doing everything we can to ease the financial burden on Members who have been adversely impacted by reduced work hours, temporary closings, and other challenges.
Economic Impact Payments
The first round of deposits for the CARES Act economic impact payments may begin hitting accounts by mid-April. We want to take a moment to help you understand what this may mean for you.
If your current Centra account information is on file with the IRS from your 2018 or 2019 tax return, and you qualify for an economic impact payment, it may be direct deposited into your Centra account. If the IRS does not have account information for you, you may receive a check in the mail at a later date. Questions about if you qualify for a payment, where that payment will go, and when it will be received should all be directed to the IRS.
The IRS developed an online application to allow you to check your payment status, confirm your payment type (check or direct deposit), and enter your account information. Learn more here: irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment
We encourage you to use Mobile Deposit. It’s quick, simple, and secure. The first $225 of your deposit will be posted the same business day if you made the deposit by 5 pm. Your full deposit will be available in no more than two business days.
