Today is TAKE OUR DAUGHTERS & SONS TO WORK DAY, and things look a bit different for much of the SECU staff. Some of our new staff members have a bit more fur than normal, and others require constant snacks.

Today is EARTH DAY! 🌎 Here are ways that you can participate. Make sure you tell us your favorite ways to celebrate in the comments below:

- Turn the faucet off. Did you know you can save up to eight gallons of water a day just by shutting off the faucet when brushing your teeth?

- Walk, run, or hike the Earth. Be considerate by keeping a distance from others, but walking outside has been proven to help reduce negative thoughts!

- Take a virtual tour of our nation's National Parks through the National Park Service

- Join the Earth Day Network for an all-day watch party featuring messages of love and commitment to saving the planet.

- Consider planting a Victory Garden https://modernfarmer.com/2020/04/how-to-jumpstart-your-covid-19-victory-garden/

Now more than ever, it's time to help when you can.

We challenge each of our members who are able to donate $1 to the SECU MD Foundation: https://bit.ly/SECU_Cares

For every dollar you donate, we will match it up to $100,000. These funds will then be given back to SECU members to help take care of those who have fallen on hardship as a result of COVID-19.

SECU members have already generously donated more than $15,000 to help out their communities, and we've matched it to donate over $30,000 to SECU members!

Thank you so much for your patience. SECU's website, mobile site, and app are all back up and running. We are still experiencing a higher than normal volume, so you may still experience slowness, but we are actively working on speeding it up. Again, thank you so much for your patience.

Want to check the status of your stimulus payment? Go to the IRS Economic Impact website, and click "Get My Payment". You'll enter in some basic information and will be able to check the status. **Due to the high volume of inquiries, there may be delays accessing the link. The IRS is the only source for information on future payment dates.**
https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments

The SECU website is currently experiencing issues. Our team is actively working on this issue and we will update when the issue is resolved. **The SECU Mobile App is working well, so we encourage you to use that for the time being.**

We know there are a lot of questions regarding the upcoming IRS stimulus payments. The best resource is the IRS Economic Impact Payments site (https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments), but we wanted to answer a few FAQs below:

1. When will I receive my stimulus payment?
Payments will begin to arrive in accounts across the United States starting the week of April 13th for those that received a refund via direct deposit in the past. The IRS is sending out the payments on a rolling schedule, so while you may receive yours this week, the IRS has stated that it could be several months before all payments are distributed. The U.S. Department of Treasury expects that a “large majority of eligible Americans will receive Economic Impact Payments within the next two weeks”. The IRS is working to have a website to check your payment status starting in mid-April.

2. How will I receive my stimulus payment?
The IRS has reported they will issue direct deposit payments to the same account used on the 2019 tax filing or issue a check. The credits will have the same description as tax refunds. While information has been periodically changing, the IRS has stated that direct deposits will be issued first, followed by checks being mailed.

3. How do I know if I am eligible and if so, how much money will I be receiving?
There are a number of factors set by the IRS to determine if you are eligible and how much you may receive. You can find all information on the IRS’ COVID-19 page here: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments

4. My friend/family member already received their stimulus payment. Why doesn’t SECU have mine yet?
The IRS is sending out payments on a rolling schedule. SECU will promptly post all payments on the issue date from the IRS.

5. Where can I see my pending deposits to see if my Stimulus credit is in my account?
SECU does not have an option to view pending deposits. Stimulus credits will be posted and reflected in your account balance the day issued by the IRS.

6. How will I know when my stimulus money is posted?
Check your bank account. But also know that the IRS plans to mail a letter about the economic impact payment to the taxpayer’s last known address within 15 days after the payment is paid.

The response to the COVID-19 outbreak has put many non-profit organizations into overdrive and requires the need for additional financial resources. The SECU MD Foundation is offering $2,000 grants to NON-PROFITS serving our Maryland communities in response to COVID-19.
