Economic Impact Payment (Stimulus Information)
Dear FirstLight Member,

If you expect to receive an Economic Impact Payment from the government, in most cases your payment will be deposited in the same bank account you provided on your 2018 or 2019 tax return.

FirstLight will post stimulus payments to eligible member accounts as soon as the funds are received.

This is how FirstLight can Help you find out if you received your stimulus payment:
  • Online Banking 
  • FirstLight Mobile App 
  • Banking Alert (see below on how to set it up)
Do you want to receive a notification for a Large Deposit made to your account?

If so, setting up Banking Alerts is quick and simple!

Just follow these steps:
  1. Sign into Online Banking. 
  2. Select "My Settings" > Other Settings (Bottom of Page) > Alerts and Notifications. 
  3. Update your phone number and Email.
  4. Add an Alert > Activity > Large Deposit > Select the amount.
