COVID-19 Update

Important Information (Updated May 22nd):

The IBEW Local 56 FCU is committed to the health and safety of our members and employees.  We are closely monitoring the daily developments regarding COVID-19 and are following the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control as well as the local and state government. 

We will re-open our lobby on Monday, June 1st.  We do request that members only visit the lobby when necessary and if possible to call the office first.  We can process many transactions over the phone or electronically which can eliminate the need for a lobby visit.  Keep the following in mind when visiting the lobby:

  • Our lobby hours will be:  Monday - Thursday: 9:30am - 5:00pm and Friday: 9:30am-6:00pm
  • Please wear a face mask & remember to practice social distancing
  • Bring your photo ID with you
  • No more than four (4) people in the lobby at one time
  • Tuesday mornings from 9:30am-10:30am are reserved for high risk members
  • Please call first for any transaction that requires paperwork (ex: account openings, IRA transactions, share certificates, etc.) or if you have multiple transactions
  • Please monitor our website for any changes in procedures or hours.

Whenever possible:

  • Use Home Banking.  If you're currently not enrolled in Home Banking, please call and we can acivate your account.
  • Call the office and we can move funds to/from your Credit Union account to/from your account at another financial institution electronically via ACH.
  • If you are making a deposit or loan payment and don't require a receipt or cash back, please place it in an envelope with your name and instructions and put it in the night deposit (located to the left of the West 20th Street entrance).  We will check for deposits throughout the day.

Our employees are taking preventative measures like wearing face masks, hand washing/sanitizing and regular cleaning of teller and personal workspaces. 

Any borrower who finds themselves in a financial hardship is encouraged to contact us as soon as possible regarding what options are avaiable for repayment (refinances, extensions, consolidations, skip-a-pay, etc.).  If we work together, we will get through this crisis.

Unfortunately fraudsters are taking advantage of fears over the coronavirus and are attempting to scam consumers.  Please be wary of e-mails, texts & phone calls regarding the virus as well as those pertaining to federal monetary relief.  We encourage you not to give out any personal or account information.  Also, be on the lookout for phony websites.  When looking for information, make sure you visit the official CDC or government sites.
