The COVID-19 outbreak has required KEMBA to close our branch lobbies except for appointments only, while drive-thrus and ATMs remain open to serve you. Unfortunately, this has caused an increase in wait times at the drive-thrus and when calling Member Services.

Given recent developments and guidelines from the CDC and government officials on slowing the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, our branch lobbies are closed effective March 20, 2020. Lobbies will remain closed until further notice; however, KEMBA stands ready to serve you, with in-branch appointments with Member Service Representatives, branch drive-thrus open during regular hours, by phone, and more.

KEMBA Financial Credit Union wants to reassure our members that your money remains safe and you will continue to have access to your funds and accounts.

 

Our branches remain open, and we have taken even more steps to further sanitize the lobby areas:

 

  • To avoid spreading the virus through touch, we will no longer be shaking hands but will use alternative forms of greetings.
  • Coffee will not be available for the time being due to the difficulty in keeping the surface areas of the machine continuously clean.
  • We have employed enhanced cleaning of hard surfaces and frequently used areas.

 

With more individuals participating in social distancing and not using the lobbies, there may be increased wait times in drive-thrus, at ATMs, and when calling into our Virtual Branch. We ask that you have patience during these times and we promise to assist you as soon as possible.

 

To ensure we can provide you with the most current information, please review your contact details to confirm your phone number, email, and address are up to date.

Beware of coronavirus scams and fraud

 

In times of fear and uncertainty, scammers worldwide are looking to take advantage of consumer insecurity and generosity. At KEMBA Financial Credit Union, we are not only committed to protecting the health of our members and associates amid the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), but as a financial cooperative we also want to ensure their financial well-being.

 

With a growing number of reported scams centered around the coronavirus, here are a few tips to help protect your private information and your finances:

 

  1. Keep your anti-virus and anti-malware software up to date.
  2. Avoid clicking on links from unknown sources, especially within emails and in advertisements.
  3. Look out for advertisements or emails asking for an upfront investment.
  4. Contact a trusted medical professional for questions about prevention and treatment of coronavirus.
  5. Research aid organizations and charities prior to donating. Use a source like Give.org to help identify legitimate organizations.

 

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website has more tips and information about emerging and existing scams. If you suspect a scam, the FTC advises that you report it to them at ftc.gov/complaint.
