Important information for our members during the COVID-19 pandemic
Update: March 26, 2020
As our country has been faced with challenging times, First Abilene FCU wants to ensure you that we are thinking about you, your family members and friends dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to ensure the safety of our employees and members, beginning March 30, 2020 we will temporarily close our lobbies due to the current public health emergency. Drive-thrus will remain open from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm. While we will be limiting in-person access, staff WILL continue to support your needs by phone, e-mail and private appointments. We are an essential business, therefore our drive-thru will continue to extend services to include deposits, withdrawals, loan payments, cashier checks, money orders, check orders, account print outs and debit card disputes.
During this time, we strongly encourage you to utilize remote channels for your banking needs:
• Online Banking/Mobile App: Make payments on loans, pay bills, transfer funds, view transactions.
• By Phone at (325) 670.2429. Please be patient as we may experience a high volume of calls. In the case that the phone lines are busy, please e-mail our staff and a representative WILL return your call.
• Email: email@example.com
• Personal Appointments Available
This does not impact the safety of your deposits. As always, your money is secure with First Abilene FCU and is federally insured by the NCUA.
Please stay safe, informed and know that we are still here to serve you. Thank you for choosing First Abilene FCU.
