In response to the pandemic, Congress has directed the U.S. Treasury to send to economic-impact – or stimulus – payments to taxpayers. These payments include:
- $1,200 for individuals, or $2,400 for married couples
- $500 for each qualifying child
You’re eligible for full stimulus payments if you’re a taxpayer with an income of $75,000 or less, or a total of $150,000 for married couples. Visit our blog for information on stimulus income qualifications.
And the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has the most up-to-date information regarding how, where, and when the payments will be sent.

As our members and communities face unique challenges due to COVID-19, food shelves across Minnesota are seeing their clients’ needs triple. And to help, we partner with Second Harvest Heartland.
How Affinity Plus is Helping
Our relationship with Second Harvest Heartland is year-round, but we recently donated $10,000 for the increased need in our communities. And we’ll also help the organization with marketing to increase awareness and additional funding. All of it will support food distribution, access to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and more resources that help feed our neighbors during these unprecedented times.

If you’re in the position to give, Affinity Plus members can use 1,250 MyPlus Rewards™ points for a $10 charitable donation to a food shelf in your community. Just log in to the mobile app or online banking to check and redeem your points. Or you can make a financial donation of any amount through Second Harvest Heartland’s website.
