On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, which allocates about $900 billion in coronavirus assistance. This includes:
- The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) expiration date was extended from December 31, 2020 to March 14, 2021 and allows PUA payments to be made until April 5, 2021.
- The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) expanded unemployment insurance eligibility by allowing additional groups of workers to be eligible and provides unemployment eligibility for up to 39 weeks.
- The Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation (MEUC) provides an additional $100 in weekly unemployment benefits to PUA workers who earn their income as a W-2 wage earner and self-employed individual.

We want to thank ALL medical workers for their hard work, dedication, and the sacrifices that they’re making to help keep us all safe. This week, AHFCU had the honor of thanking a few of them in person with some donuts and other goodies. Although we were only able to personally thank a handful of workers at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, we hope that ALL medical workers from ALL medical centers know how much we appreciate them!
If you are receiving a COVID-19 Economic Impact Payment you may be receiving it as early as this week.
If you’re receiving a Direct Deposit
Members who signed up with the IRS to have direct deposit should receive their COVID-19 Economic Impact Payment via ACH into the account that the IRS has on file. The U.S. Treasury Department is sending the first batch of electronic payments this week. You can check the status of your electronic payment by viewing your account in NetTeller (Online Banking).
If you’re receiving a Live Check
If you are eligible for an Economic Impact Payment and have not signed up with the IRS to have your payment directly deposited into your account, you will be receiving a physical check mailed to the address that the IRS has on file. Live checks will be sent in batches after all the ACH checks have been sent. If you have changed addresses since filing your last tax return, click here to update your information to avoid delay of receiving your payment.
Once you receive your check, you can deposit it into your AHFCU account through our Mobile App (available at the App Store and Google Play). You can also deposit it at an AHFCU or CO-OP Network ATM. Click here for an ATM locator.
