July 3, 2020: Changes effective Tuesday, July 7.
Beginning Tuesday, July 7, face masks and social distancing will be required for anyone entering an SCU branch. We will also offer temperature screenings to everyone entering our facilities.
Members will be asked to temporarily remove masks for standard identification purposes before completing any transactions. If you feel you cannot remove your mask for identification in the branch, or if you are experiencing symptoms of an illness, you may use our drive thru or our other self-service options such as online banking or our mobile banking app.
We thank you for your understanding while we seek to address both health and safety risks, and as always, we thank you for being a State Credit Union member!
June 3, 2020: Special Message to our members from Jim Kinard, President:
Who among us, on March 1, 2020, could have imagined how a thing we now call COVID-19 would have such a profound effect on our world? It has impacted simple things such as shopping for toiletries to our schools, our eating habits, our social interaction and the way we conduct our business. We have had to adjust to what we now call our “new normal”.
Our credit union has had to adjust to many changes as well. On March 23rd, for the safety of our members and employees, we closed all of our lobbies and expanded service through our drive-thru s, phone center, mobile app and online banking systems. During that time, our most important priority has remained the safety and health of our members and employees as we strive to improve the financial lives of our members.
Beginning June 3rd, branch lobbies are open to personally serve you once again. However, when you enter our lobbies, you will notice that we have put in place several health and safety measures to reduce the spread of germs. First, we will stress social distancing and will have instructional signage in place to assist you. We have installed plexi-glass safety guards at our teller windows and in our offices, which will help reduce the risk during face-to-face interactions. Third, our employees will have their temperature taken before the start of each workday to ensure we maintain a healthy workplace. We will continue to deep clean and sanitize our workstations and offices regularly. Lastly, all our employees have been provided with masks and will be highly encouraged to wear them when in close contact with others.
In addition, this situation has brought about changes to Traditional and Roth IRAs. I encourage members to review the following documents if you have these types of retirement accounts:
Thank you for being LOYAL SCU members and for your understanding and patience as we work through this “new normal” to serve you.
Since 1952, we have been through many trials and tribulations and we will get through this one as well…TOGETHER.
Jim Kinard - President / CEO
