COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 UPDATE
Service Delivery Change – Effective Monday, March 23, 2020

Churchbridge Credit Union recognizes the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus, and the unease many are facing. Our main priorities are keeping our members, employees, and their families safe while maintaining our service to you.

In the face of this crisis, we are changing how we serve our members. Effective March 23, 2020, Churchbridge Credit Union will temporarily suspend all in-branch services.

We understand your concerns and will continue to provide access to necessary banking services. Although our doors will not be open to the public, we will have staff available to answer your calls, texts, and emails, and process your transactions.

We ask that you use online banking, our mobile app, or our ATM network to perform your day to day transactions such as depositing cheques, paying bills, transferring funds, and account inquiries. Alternative methods and actions we will be implementing include:
• Using our night deposit to drop off cheques, cash, and bill payments for processing. Our staff will be processing these transactions regularly throughout the day.
• Waiving fees for phone transactions.
• Working with our personal, farm, and business members on a case-by-case basis to help our members manage through this challenging time.
• Reaching out to our key community organizations, business and consumer members to reduce impacts of this temporary change in service.
• Phone interviews for your investment, lending, and other advisory service needs.

Please call your local branch and we will work with you to meet your financial needs

We are doing our best to navigate these uncertain times as the progress of the virus continues, and the impact is made known. We thank you for your support in keeping the health and safety of our members and employees the priority.

we cannot receive faxes at this time, we will respond to voicemail and email messages. We will
acknowledge your call or email within 24 hours. Please make sure you provide your name, telephone
