How can we help?

We know that many of you have made adjustments in your lives due to the impacts of COVID-19, and we're here to help you along the way.

Advanced Child Tax Credits

Beginning July 15, 2021, eligible M&T customers will begin to receive direct monthly Advance Child Tax Credit payments through December 2021. These Advance Child Tax Credit payments equal half the total credit amount and you will claim the other half when you file your 2021 income tax return. These changes apply to tax year 2021 only.

If you have questions about your eligibility, payment timing, payment status, amount or how you will receive your tax credit, please visit the IRS’s Advance Child Tax Credit Payments in 2021 website.
