Community Resource FCU’s Coronavirus Response

3/24/2020

We wanted to let you know we are here for you. Although for the time being, we now have to serve you in a different capacity, our focus and goal is to continuously provide exceptional member service. We will continue to work with you on your financial needs and look to provide the necessary tools and resources to help you navigate through these times.

We understand the potential impact and concern the most recent requirement of 100% of non-essential businesses being required to keep their workforce at home may cause. We would like to reassure you we are deemed an essential business and will remain available. That means we will be able to continue providing services to our members in a safe manner.

If you have been impacted or expect to be impacted financially, we have a few Relief Options, including:

  • Skip-a-Payment:  All loans are eligible to skip payments for up to 3 months. Call 518-783-2211 to make arrangements.
  • Mortgage Assistance Program: Contact us at 518-783-2211.
  • Debt Relief Loans: Apply online or by phone at 518-783-2211 for a loan as low as 2.99% APR* with maximum amount of $5,000.
  • No early withdrawal penalty on Share Certificates: We understand you might need access to your savings, so we’ll be waiving penalties for early withdrawals on certificates.

Community Resource FCU will also work with our members on a case-by-case basis to assess each individual situation and develop a workable solution.

Call us at 518-783-2211 or email us at PaySolutions@communityresourcefcu.com or info@communityresourcefcu.com.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we get through this national crisis together.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. All rates quoted are the lowest fixed rates and are for individuals with excellent credit, who select our automatic payment plan. Individuals with less than excellent credit and/or who do not elect our automatic payment plan may be offered a higher rate.

A message from our President & CEO, Terry Langlois

With the rapidly changing conditions regarding COVID-19, we are continuously monitoring and responding to how we protect our staff and you, our members. Here is the latest information we would like to share with you regarding your credit union and the evolving situation.

ONLY DRIVE-THRU OPEN, EFFECTIVE 3/19

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to move all branch transactions to drive-thru service only, as of Thursday, 3/19, to create social distancing that protects you and our staff.  This means that lobbies in all branches will be closed to traffic until further notice.

Our drive-thru will remain open. Click here for hours.

WE ARE READY TO HELP

We understand this is a unique situation, and we are committed to helping any members who may need assistance.

Members who need to have one-on-one or in-person appointments should reach out by phone first, at 518-783-2211, and we will work with you to come up with accommodations to meet your needs.

MOBILE AND ONLINE BANKING IS AVAILABLE 24/7 FOR MOST TRANSACTIONS

With mobile and online banking, you can check balances, transfer funds, pay loans, make bill payments, and deposit checks—all from the comfort of home.  If you have questions about setting up online or mobile banking, we can help walk you through the process.  Our team is available at 518-783-2211; Monday – Wednesday, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM; Thursday & Friday 8:30 AM – 6:00 PM; and Saturday 9 AM – 1:00 PM.

What CRFCU is doing to protect you. 

The priority of Community Resource FCU is to ensure the health and safety of our members and employees while continuing to maintain operations. That’s why we are monitoring the current situation of the novel coronavirus, named COVID-19, and the impact it has on the communities we serve.

We are actively following the latest developments and will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the New York State Department of Health.

With that in mind, Community Resource FCU recently postponed its Annual Meeting which originally was scheduled for Tuesday, March 31st. The event is attended by members and staff which presented an opportunity for the virus to potentially spread.

As a reminder to our members who wish to avoid public interactions and minimize exposure to the disease, Community Resource Federal Credit Union has a robust online and mobile banking platform. Within online and mobile banking, members can:

  • Access accounts and manage money 24 hours a day
  • Make payments on Community Resource FCU loans
  • Easily transfer funds between accounts
  • Deposit checks remotely
  • Pay bills using Bill Pay
  • Open additional deposit accounts and apply for loan accounts

 

While our branches currently remain open to serve you, we are also available by phone for our members. You can reach us during the following hours:

  • Monday and Tuesday    8:30 – 4:30
  • Wednesday                     9:30 – 4:30
  • Thursday and Friday      8:30 – 6:00
  • Saturday                          9:00 – 1:00

Please call 518.783.2211 for assistance.

The Community Resource FCU family remains committed to providing our members with superior service with a focus on safety. We will continue to monitor the outbreak and will provide further updates to this page.
