Thursday, March 19th: Patience is Appreciated | Emergency Relief Loan Established

To better serve you, we extended our Drive Thru and Call Center hours. Due to unprecedented demand, we are experiencing longer than normal wait times. Thank you for bearing with us while our dedicated staff works to serve you safely through these channels. ATMs, phone banking, and online banking services are also available to help meet your needs. Rest assured we remain committed to serving your banking needs through this pandemic. With patience, understanding, and compassion for all we will get through this together.


Emergency Relief Loan

As a community, we are suddenly finding ourselves in uncharted territory. In light of these unique circumstances we will be implementing an Emergency Relief Loan. This loan program is specifically designed to provide assistance to our Members related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This loan can assist with regular or reoccurring monthly expenses. We also have solutions such as our loan skip payment program that may be of assistance. If you are struggling to pay your bills, we are here to help ease the burden. Call 315-735-8571 to talk to a representative today.


Other Delays

Please be aware that during these unprecedented circumstances, there may also be delays for services such as Mortgages. While we continue to work on the loan and paperwork requirements, social distancing or quarantines of individuals such as appraisers, title clerks, attorneys, and others may contribute to additional postponements. 

If you have an existing mortgage that you need financial assistance with due to COVID-19, please see these additional resources dependent on your specific mortgage:

Each year our staff proactively goes through pandemic training and is well prepared for situations such as this.

Employees are reminded to follow best practices set forth by the World Health Organization - demonstrate proper hygiene both in an out of the workplace, avoid mass gatherings and unnecessary travel and stay home or seek care if they present flu-like symptoms. Members are encouraged to do the same. Hand sanitizer has also been prominently placed throughout our offices and branches.
