Remember: The IRS will not call you!

With the IRS beginning the distribution of the economic impact payments, also known as “stimulus checks”, it’s important to remember that the IRS will not call you to ask for any personal account information. The banking information they need to process these payments via direct deposit will be based off your most recent tax filing. Do not give out your banking or account information over the phone!

Answers to common questions in relation to these payments are available by visiting the IRS’ website at:

Annual Meeting & Loan Sale Postponed

Due to the current COVID-19 situation we are all in, we are postponing both our annual meeting and loan sale that were scheduled to take place in April. At this time, we are exercising extreme caution when calling meetings to order and limiting in-branch meetings.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and will make accommodations for a new annual meeting as soon as possible. We also understand that the loan sale is a special event that our members look forward to each year, and we are truly apologetic that we are unable to hold this special at this time. Please be assured you will be the first to know when we offer a lending special in the future!

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
