You can visit the IRS website to check on the status of your stimulus payment. It's updated as new information becomes available. If you look at your account (thru Online Banking or the mobile app), you might see it in the Pending Transactions section. That's where you'll see details on when the IRS releases your funds. If you don't normally receive your tax refund via direct deposit, your stimulus will be sent as a paper check or prepaid card delivered over the next few weeks.

An Update on Governor DeWine's Remarks

Posted 5 months ago

At Pillar, we’re monitoring and evaluating the COVID-19 situation every day and taking several precautions to protect our members and employees. On Wednesday, Governor DeWine addressed all Ohioans about the recent increase in cases and what steps may need to be taken in the future. (You can read his address here or view it here.) Currently there are no plans to close the lobby at Barks Road. If this changes, we’ll send an update through the website, email, and our social media channels. We want to remind you that masks are required to enter the building. Our drive-thru remains available as an option if that’s more comfortable for you. We appreciate your continued cooperation as we work together to keep our community and households safe.

Be Sure You Verify Fraud Protection Calls

Posted 9 months ago

We've had several members say they've received a call from someone stating they're calling from the Fraud Department. The message instructs the member to call them back at an 800 number and verify the last 4 digits on their card. While sometimes this could be a phishing scam, there are instances where this is legitimate. If you receive a call and you’re suspicious, get the case number they're supplying, hang up, call our number (740-389-9960), and someone on our staff will be able to verify. The numbers to call for our fraud protection partner are 1-844-682-4502 or 1-877-273-5740. Again, just because that number shows up on caller ID that doesn't guarantee it's legitimate.
