Economic Impact Payments
With the passage of legislation for the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package, a new round of Economic Impact Payments, or stimulus payments, will be available. We know this financial assistance continues to be vital, and we’re here to help.
Here are a few things you should know:
- Eligibility to receive a Stimulus Payment is different for everyone. Visit the IRS website to see if you are eligible.
- Eligible Hancock County Savings Bank customers will start to receive funds by direct deposit on March 17. Payments will continue for several weeks. You may receive a payment as direct deposit, or you may receive a paper check or prepaid card in the mail.
- Be on the lookout for tax frauds and scams. You will not be contacted directly by Hancock County Savings Bank or by the IRS asking for personal information. Beware of text messages, phone calls, websites, or social media posts that request money or personal information.
Remember, you can safely and securely manage your money at hcsbank.com and with the Hancock County Savings Bank app.
