FedChoice COVID-19 center provides resources to federal employees and contractors during pandemic
LANHAM, MD (March 27, 2020) — FedChoice Federal Credit Union greatly appreciates how Credit Unions and supporting organizations and trade associations are spreading the word about how Credit Union employees and members may stay well while they’re working remotely from home to minimize exposure to COVID-19.
Unfortunately, however, many businesses have closed and laid off employees when they were identified as being either “non-essential” or a place where more than 10 people would likely gather at one time (i.e. restaurants, bars, gyms, etc.).
FedChoice Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Lanham, MD, is making members as well as federal government employees and federal government contractors aware of the various ways that we can offer them assistance if they’ve already begun to experience the negative impact of the pandemic. The link shown summarizes what we’re doing and also shows the changes in our branch hours – fedchoice.org/my-life/covid-center/.
Members may still call, email and chat with us during regular business hours if they need any assistance with their accounts or they may utilize our mobile app and online banking to check their accounts, pay bills, make transfers, deposit checks, etc.
Thank you for your assistance as we all make every effort to reach out to members when they need our help the most.
