Message to our Members about COVID-19

May 13, 2020

Dear Members:

I hope you and your family are safe and well. In these past weeks and months, we have been tried and tested in ways we never imagined. We have also seen the very best in human nature: courage and grit, kindness and compassion.

The stories I hear from our Members inspire me every day. I salute our Members in the educational community, who pivoted quickly to support our children and continue to help us build our future. I’m humbled by the devotion of our Members in essential businesses who are helping keep our communities going. And of course, we all owe a tremendous debt to our first responders and medical professionals.

I know that there are so many others as well. You, our Member Heroes, are the best examples of humanity in one of our toughest moments.

We are Here to Help You Now and in the Future
If you’re dealing with debt, reduced hours or a layoff, or if you just need guidance on how best to financially navigate this crisis, we are here for you. Please let us know how we can help. Visit the “Advice” tab on  SchoolsFirst FCU’s website for helpful tips and tools.

We recognize that this pandemic is driving unprecedented instability in the market. The financial impacts will most likely extend into next year.

Our retirement and investment advisors are available to talk to Members about your accounts and address your concerns.

We know these are uncertain times and we hope you find confidence in SchoolsFirst FCU’s ability to meet your needs. We have navigated significant economic challenges before.
