As we move into June, the safety of our members and staff remains our top priority. We continue to monitor the situation in each of our communities to determine when we will be able to safely re-open our lobbies. We will keep you updated on any lobby reopening plans.
We’re continuing to conduct in-person business through the drive-up lanes at all of our branches. Those branches are also accepting deposits, loan payments, and documents in their night deposit boxes. For your convenience, night deposit boxes are open 24/7 so you can drop off your banking anytime.
Our Online Banking, Bill Pay, Remote Check Deposit and Mobile App services have seen a significant increase in usage and we’re deeply grateful to members who have chosen to try and use those channels. As a reminder, please stay vigilant with protecting your online banking information as Bellwether will never call you asking for log in information or secure access codes. We’ve added additional staff to answer your calls. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and willingness to try new ways of doing business with us. We value your membership!

As always, the health of our members, community and employees are of utmost importance to Bellwether Community Credit Union. We have taken steps to assure our members financial needs are met while implementing safety precautions as we learn more information about COVID-19.
All branch locations will be transitioned to drive-up business only effective Wednesday, March 18. Our Drive-Ups will remain open for your banking needs and when possible our staff will direct you to the best lane for quick and efficient service. We have temporarily closed our lobbies for in-branch transactions out of an abundance of caution. For those who need access inside the branch for wires or safety deposit box access, call 866-996-9828 to set an appointment
Bellwether Community Credit Union is financially strong and well prepared to fully serve our members during these rapidly evolving circumstances. Our role is to be available to you, our members when you need us.
