We know that these are difficult times. We are with you and understand that you may be dealing with a financial hardship due to COVID-19. To help ease the financial burden, we are committed to providing you support by making sure you have access to extra money you may need, reducing or waiving fees, and allowing you to forgo payments if needed during this time.

Here is a summary of the temporary updates we have put in place to help members who are impacted by COVID-19:

  • Deferred mortgage payments based on need
  • Deferred consumer and auto loan payments
  • Skip-a-Pay on credit card payments. Please refer to your credit card statement for details.
  • Deferred business loan payments and bridge loan options based on needs of our local businesses
  • No payment for 90 days on all new consumer loans

If you are experiencing a financial hardship due to COVID-19, we encourage you to contact our Member Contact Center at 1-800-888-4728 or via email by visiting our Contact Us page. We will do everything we can to help you.

Please remember that our branch drive-ups remain open during regular business hours and our 24-hour ATMs continue to be available. You also can access your accounts via online and mobile banking.

Even while we have temporarily suspended access to our branch lobbies, we understand that you may have an essential need to meet with us. If you are dealing with a hardship, or have an essential need, please contact us to schedule an appointment at a branch.

We’re With You.

Sincerely,
