No Form, No Payment

 To remind the membership, everyone MUST submit a form to receive a CSKT COVID Relief payment. No exceptions. The US Treasury informed CSKT that for this payment to be non-taxable it cannot be like a per capita and must be based on individual need, which is why the form includes questions on COVID-19 induced hardships. Approximately, 2,800 forms have been submitted at this point. Be on the lookout for a confirmation email or text confirming that you have successfully submitted the form.

Another point to remember, a Tribal ID is only needed if you change your direct deposit information.

Thank you for your cooperation in this process.
