With new Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments happening every hour, we continue to monitor the situation and adjust our plans to ensure we’re doing the most we can to keep our members, staff and the community as healthy as we can.

Stimulus Check

The IRS will be sending out stimulus checks that will post as early as April 15th. For most tax payers, you will receive the checks via direct deposit, with the IRS using the bank account information from your 2019 or 2018 filed tax returns. If you need to update your credit union account information or if you have any other questions about the stimulus checks, please click here to visit the IRS Economic Impact Payments website. 

Reduced Lobby Hours

All of us here at MSEFCU want to make sure we’re serving our members in the best possible way during this difficult time. In order to keep providing you with excellent service while also protecting your health and the health of our staff, we have made the decision to temporarily reduce our branch lobby hours effective March 28th.

Please know, even though our lobby hours have been reduced, our employees will still be on site to assist our members by answering phone calls and e-mails Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

We hope to lessen the financial hardship during this unfortunate situation by offering different options to suit your needs, such as delaying a payment, waiving fees, increasing a credit line, or getting a low interest loan with no payment due for 60 days.

Coronavirus Scams

Fraudsters haven’t wasted any time with scams related to the Coronavirus, especially since congress passed the large COVID-19 relief and stimulus package. There has been a rise in fraud due to the stimulus package and they expect the fraud to continue throughout the pandemic. We are asking our members to be vigilant during these times.

In response to the federal stimulus package, keep in mind that the IRS doesn't initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information. This includes requests for PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards, banks or other financial accounts.

Please always remember to never share your personal information or give out your bank account information. If something looks suspicious or seems too good to be true, it probably is. For more information on how to avoid Coronavirus scams, visit consumer.ftc.gov.


Re-Scheduled Living Trust Seminar

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our April 29th Living Trust Seminar has been rescheduled with a new tentative date of June 17th. We have a Living Trust Seminar list for the rescheduled seminar date, but if the pandemic government orders stay the same, we will reschedule the seminar again.
 
To be added to the Living Trust Seminar list, please email events@mercedschoolcu.org , call 209.383.5550 ext.157 , or click here(Opens in a new Window) to Contact Us straight from our website. (Be sure to mention the Living Trust Seminar or LTS in your message).
