Upcoming Stimulus Payments
The U.S. House of Representatives on March 10, 2021, passed the Senate-amended H.R. 1319, the American Rescue Plan (ARP). The ARP provides $1.9 trillion in additional relief to Americans’ response to COVID-19.
President Joe Biden signed the bill on March 11, 2021. To view the bill in its entirety, please visit https://www.congress.gov/. The bill includes economic aid stimulus payments of $1,400 per individual. These deposits could be received from the Treasury as early as March 17, 2021.
If you are receiving your payment electronically:
If you gave your account information to the Treasury Department for your annual tax refund you will most likely receive your payment electronically. You may view your pending payment within Digital Banking a few days in advance. The funds will be available on the date listed in your transaction history. Digital Banking may experience intermittent delays due to higher than normal usage because of the distribution of the third round of stimulus payments. Our team is working to maintain system performance during this peak time of increased activity.
If you are receiving your payment by check:
If you receive your annual tax refund through a paper check, your stimulus check will most likely be mailed to you. Once you receive your stimulus check you can deposit it by utilizing our Digital Banking mobile app, one of our friendly full-service branches by appointment, through one of our drive-thru locations, or at an ATM.
We understand these economic impact payments are important and we will do our part as your trusted financial institution to process these deposits as soon as they are available. Thank you for being a member!

Effective immediately, Henrico FCU will lift all limitations on Regulation D transactions until further notice from the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve Board on Friday announced an interim final rule to amend Regulation D (Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions) to delete the six-per-month limit on convenient transfers from savings deposit accounts. The interim final rule allows all depository institutions to immediately suspend enforcement of the six transfer limit and to allow their members/customers to make an unlimited number of convenient transfers and withdrawals from their savings deposits at a time when financial events associated with the coronavirus pandemic have made such access more urgent.
“Today’s action by the Federal Reserve will make it easier for credit unions to give members access to their funds, which is vitally important as communities around the country deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak,” CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said.

Scammers are notorious for exploiting fear, and the COVID-19 outbreak is no exception. In the last few weeks, scammers have set up fake websites, bogus funding collections, and more tricks that prey on the fearful. The best weapons against these scams are education. When people know about circulating scams and how to identify them, they’re already several steps ahead.
Here are the types of scams to look out for:
Scammers give themselves away when they ask for payment via specific means, including a wire transfer or prepaid gift card. Scams are also easily spotted by claims of urgency, such as “Act now!” Lastly, poor writing skills, including grammatical errors, awkward syntax, and misspelled words are often a key giveaway. A specific example from COVID-19 scams, “Breaking information” alerts appear to be from health agencies.
Avoid scams by practicing safe habits. Always be skeptical about trial offers and outrageous monetary promises. Never give out your personal information on the internet or phone. Do not click on suspicious links. For more information about scams, sign up for free scam alerts from the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/scams.
