Beware of the following Stimulus Payment Scams

The IRS will not never call you and ask for your account information. If you receive a call, do not engage with the caller, disconnect the call immediately.

Phishing and Malware Scams – Do not reply or click on any link. Delete the text or email.

We continue to follow the CDC guidelines and recommendations on how we can help prevent the spread of the virus. Our steps include:

  • Our branches and their ATMs are thoroughly cleaned daily
  • Sanitizing gel and foam stations are available in branches
  • Our employees have been given specific instructions on hand washing and the importance of staying home if they feel ill
  • We have cancelled all business travel for the remainder of the year and will reassess for coming months
  • Any staff member who has traveled to deemed “hot spots” will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days

The CDC recommends putting distance between yourself and others to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.

We are encouraging staff to maintain a safe distance from each other and members. We appreciate your effort to maintain space, especially while at the teller line.
