Q: When can I expect to see my second stimulus check from the government?

A: The IRS began distribution of these payments on Monday, January 4th, and will continue in waves over the next few weeks. The IRS determines these payment waves, and CBC Federal Credit Union does not know who will be in each wave. Immediate access to these funds is essential; we are processing these payments as we receive them from the government.

After login to your mobile account, you will find a message highlighting how to set up an alert to notify you when your stimulus check has been deposited into your account.
