Experian, Equifax and TransUnion are offering all U.S. consumers free weekly credit reports for the next year through www.annualcreditreport.com to help protect your financial health during the sudden and unprecedented hardship caused by COVID-19.

Jolt Joins MiMortgage Relief Partnership: UPDATE April 24, 2020

Jolt Credit Union has joined financial institutions across Michigan in the creation of the MiMortgage Relief Partnership that Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) announced to provide a three-month mortgage payment relief option to homeowners experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For many homeowners with mortgages, there’s help. But first, assess your situation.

  • If you can pay your mortgage, pay your mortgage.
  • If you can’t pay your mortgage, or can only pay a portion, contact our mortgage department at (800) 798-2328 ext. 159. Any members who are facing a financial hardship related to COVID-19 are encouraged to call as well.

Prior to signing on to the MiMortgage Relief Partnership, Jolt had already helped many members who were facing financial difficulties making their mortgage payment.

 

UPDATE: April 15, 2020

As a result of the CARES Act, the IRS is distributing stimulus checks to taxpayers starting this week. We do not know when your payment will arrive, but have information that can help! To find out when your payment will arrive visit https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments

  • The funds will be direct deposited to the same account set up for your 2019 (0r 2018) IRS refund.
  • If you need assistance accessing your account via Online & Mobile Banking to check for a deposit, contact us.
  • If you have questions specific to stimulus payments and did not file taxes in 2018 and 2019, visit https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here
  • If your account has been closed since your last IRS refund, the transaction will be rejected and you will need to contact the IRS.
  • If you have other account-related questions or concerns, contact us to discuss options.
