RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

May 20: Our lobby is still closed and we continue to be available to assist you through our online and mobile app, over the phone and through our drive up.  Our staff is dedicated to helping you during this unprecedented time.    We will notify members when we know we are able to open.  Thank you for your patience.

April 14:  We will not be helping Shared Branch members on Fridays.  This will be starting on Friday, April 17th and will continue every Friday until further notice.  We will not be negotiation any stimulus/Federal Government checks for Shared Branch members.  We will still help Shared Branch members on Monday – Thursday through our drive up.

March 27:  As we continue to adjust and settle into this new norm we have determined that it wasn’t convenient for members to use the extra time we had our drive up open.  As of Monday, March 30th we will transition back to our regular drive up hours.  Monday – Thursday 9 AM – 5:30 PM and Friday 9 AM – 6 PM. Our lobby will continue to remain closed until further notice.  Our staff is in the office and are happy to help you over the phone or through email.  We continue to encourage you to use our electronic services.  Stay Healthy and Stay Home.

March 18:  IBEWUWFCU Members – If you are planning to use a Shared Branch location we urge you to contact that credit union to see if they are still offering the shared branch service.  With many credit unions closing their branches they are also suspending this service.  See below for other ways to access your account with us.

March 17:  Our staff is at the branch to help members by phone.  Our lobby is temporarily closed and our Drive-Up is open.  To better serve you we have extended drive-up hours Monday – Friday, 8:15 AM – 6 PM.

Financial & General Tips – STAY HOME, STAY HEALTHY

Take care of your health, we’ll take care of your money!!

It is suggested to shop for groceries early in the morning.  The store should be freshly cleaned, hopefully restocked and the air ventilation should be better. Pull items from the back of the shelf when possible, they might be less contaminated.

Cash is, well, kind of dirty – As regards your personal health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends always washing hands thoroughly after handling cash, because you never know where it’s been.
