We are dedicated to providing you with the most recent information about all the ways Azura is here to help during this very unique time.

We appreciate your patience this past month and throughout the pandemic. We are elated to share with you that our lobbies are reopening on September 7th as they were before, without an appointment necessary.

At this time we are requesting masks be worn inside our branch locations if you have a scheduled in-person appointment.
As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we continue to adjust how to best serve you, as safely as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions to best keep our members, employees and communities as safe as possible.

Advance Child Tax Credit Payments
Beginning July 15th, some members may receive Advance Child Tax Credit (CTC) payments from the IRS, directly deposited into their accounts.
- Families claiming the CTC will receive up to $3,000 per qualifying child between the ages of 6 and 17 at the end of 2021. The credit will include children who turn 17 in 2021.
- Families claiming the CTC will receive $3,600 per qualifying child under age 6 at the end of 2021.
- Advance payments of up to 50% of the total CTC per family will be distributed once a month, from July 15 through Dec. 15, 2021.
- Payment will typically be received the same way each person received their stimulus payments, via direct deposit or check.
