We are here for you
With open hearts, we are working tirelessly to assist members experiencing financial hardships due to COVID-19.
Members started receiving their Economic Impact Payments (also known as Stimulus Payments) on April 14. We know many of you are anxious to receive your payment or have questions. If you're eligible for payment, and have used an MVCU/BCU account for your 2018 or 2019 tax filing, the best way to verify if the payment has been deposited into your account is through Online Banking, Mobile Banking or 24-hour automated Telephone Banking.
MVCU’s Branch and Member Support Teams will not have information about the eligibility, timing or distribution of these payments. They are decided and distributed by the IRS. You can find answers to some of your most frequently asked questions here.
Our Call Volume is very high with questions about the Stimulus Payment. If you are able, please use one of the resources listed above instead of calling. If you have additional questions about your stimulus payments, please visit irs.gov.
We encourage all members to use one of our convenient services below. You can check your balance, make a transfer or payment, pay a bill, and even deposit a check through Mobile Banking.
- Online Banking through our website
- Mobile banking through our app
- Telephone banking by calling 800-356-0067, option 1
If you need cash, you can get cash back at many point-of-sale terminals or access any of the 40,000 surcharge-free COOP or SUM ATMs across the country. Find an ATM near you.
Branch lobbies are now accessible without an appointment. To ensure social distancing of members and team members, the number of people allowed in the branch will be monitored. You may be asked to wait in your car or outside to keep 6' of distance between you and other members.

Beware of Scams
It is important to be on high alert for potential scams related to government assistance to taxpayers.

These are scams.
