The best resource for information is the IRS website, irs.gov, click the section called ‘Economic Impact Payment’.
For direct deposit into your Del-One FCU account, you will need the following information:
- Del-One FCU Routing Number: 231176554
- Full Checking Account Number (Draft ID)
If you want your stimulus check deposited into your Savings, use only your Member Number.

A message to our members from our CEO
Dear Del-One FCU Members,
Our commitment to you has been and will continue to be to regularly communicate with you during this pandemic. These letters and all the other ways we reach out to you, enables you to know what we are doing to maintain services to our members, while keeping everyone safe and healthy. Aside from letters, we are providing timely and (in some cases) daily/hourly updates on our web site (del-one.org), social media and email messaging.
Temporary Branch Closures. The Credit Union’s Business Continuity Plan is working. Guided by this very detailed Plan, management can keep operations running as close to normal as possible during this pandemic. Last Tuesday, March 24, 2020, the Newark, Downtown Dover, and Dagsboro Branch Offices were temporarily closed. All other Branch Offices are open, normal hours. Our staff, like everyone else, is impacted with situations that prevent them from being at work. While we are sorry for the inconvenience these closures may cause some of our members, they are necessary as we need to deploy staff from the closed branch offices to others that remain open. We all look forward to the end of the pandemic when life will return to normal and all Del-One Branches are open for business.
Live Tellers! Del-One FCU has one of the most extensive number of Interactive Teller Machines (or ITMs) in the State of Delaware. These ITMs allow you to do most transactions you can do at the teller line. Del-One’s ITMs are Live Teller Machines! With the touch of the screen you will be connected to a live teller. You don’t need a debit card to use the Live Teller Machine! Most of these machines are found in Del-One’s drive thru lanes. Our ITMs are clearly a step-up in member service!
Branch Office Visits. If you have an essential transaction that can only be completed with the assistance of one of our associates and you feel healthy and deem yourself to be reasonably low-risk based upon the information that has been disseminated from health care officials, we are happy to help. However, we are strongly encouraging members to utilize any of our remote services to limit in-person interactions to the greatest extent possible. In order to keep everyone safe during the pandemic, Del-One is requesting that you remain home if you have flu-like symptoms or suspect you may have symptoms. This is the responsible and moral thing to do, during these times. Using the Live Teller Machines are a great alternative to physically coming into the Branch.
“Name or member number, please?” Expect to hear this as you enter the Del-One Branches. Our staff will request this from you as we are limiting the number of members in our offices at any given time to 10 individuals or less. Our staff will take your information, you will be asked to wait in your vehicle, and we will call or text you when you are next to be served. You will not lose your place in line. This process is necessary to maintain the Federal and Delaware requirements for social distancing.
You need us, we’re here! Please reach out to us with your questions or concerns by calling our Contact Center at 302-739-4496. Our agents are ready to assist you or direct you to the right department. We recognize the challenges we are all facing, right now, and Del-One wants to do everything possible to ease your financial anxieties or problems.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has altered the normalcy of our lives. By following Federal and Delaware Coronavirus guidelines and requirements, we will regain our normal lives with the expulsion of the virus. We can all help with this effort by putting aside our individual needs and behave in a way that serves the greater good of the community. Let us pray for this illness to pass quickly, for the protection of our first responders and health care workers who are risking their own lives to care for others affected by the virus.
On behalf of every one of my teammates at Del-One Federal Credit Union, it is our pleasure to be of service to you and we appreciate you, our member/owners.
Stay safe and healthy,
Ron Baron, MBA
President and CEO
