Message to our member owners: Lobby status, Protection of Your Money with Text Messaging and Credit Score Monitoring (May 18, 2020)
Over the past two months our staff has had the privilege of hearing how you and your family have been impacted by this pandemic. There are many in our communities struggling. We have spoken to you and arranged for loan payments to be skipped and fees to be waived. There are also others who are experiencing growth and opportunity during these unusual times. We have helped you purchase and refinance homes and make wise decisions with your money.
As a member and owner of the credit union, you can have peace of mind that Mid Minnesota Federal Credit Union remains strong financially and organizationally.
LOBBIES REMAIN CLOSED, APPOINTMENTS ARE AVAILABLE
Our trusted staff remain available to meet your needs. Although the shelter in place order has lifted, as an essential service we need healthy staff to care for your needs so lobbies will remain closed as the number of new COVID-19 cases in Minnesota continues to increase. We appreciate your flexibility during these unusual times as we continue to serve you through the drive up, over the phone and the many self-service options of ATM, Night Drop, Remote Deposit, and Online and Mobile Banking. We also welcome you to make an appointment when needed to access a safe deposit box, for notary services, or to sign documents. You can request an appointment here or by calling 218-829-0371.
PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH & MONEY: Text Messages & Health Guidelines
We will be using text to let you know important account information. We promise to keep these texts few and far between and will only send information specific to your account.
We are also preparing for the day when we can open offices safely by following CDC and state health guidelines. Our team members are wearing masks and screening for good health, protective shields and social distancing floor markings are being put in place, and cleaning and sanitation is taking place.
If you've been economically impacted by this pandemic and are concerned about your bills, our staff can help. We have many options for individuals as well as businesses. As an SBA approved lender, we have already assisted 235 local business members and non-profits access the Payment Protection Program funds to keep employees working.
MONITOR YOUR CREDIT SCORE
The CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) that was passed in March, provides credit score protection. If you have an accommodation (like a skip payment) and you live up to your end of the deal, an account that had been current previously will continue to be reported that way for both account status and payment history. You can monitor your credit score for free through MMFCU’s online banking or mobile app.
Thank you again for entrusting us with your financial information and money. Please take care of yourself and those around you and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you need assistance.
