Updates

Update:  Drive Thru Hours: New hours beginning Monday, 4/6 will be Mon – Fri: 8:00 – 6:00 and Sat 9 – Noon.

Update:  The well-being of our members, employees and community is our priority. Due to concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, we are temporarily closing all White Eagle Credit Union branch lobbies effective Thursday, March 19, 2020.  All drive thru services will remain open.

Update: The CARES Act was recently signed into law and includes several provisions aimed at helping Americans stay engaged in the economy through the month of April and help you with your bills. Here are some highlights that may directly impact you:

Stimulus payments:  Most Americans are eligible to receive a stimulus payment from the government in the next few weeks. These payments are based on your most recent tax filing. Members who are receiving Social Security retirement and disability payments will also receive a stimulus payment. To learn more about these payments and to see if you’re eligible, click here.

Unemployment Payments:  If you file for unemployment benefits, you can expect an extra $600 per week.  This will be on top of your normal unemployment benefit for the next 4 months as a result of the CARES Act. The unemployment benefit time period has been increased to 39 weeks.

Be diligent in protecting yourself, your financial and personal information.

  • Never give out your personal financial information.  White Eagle CU will NEVER ask for your personal information via text, email or unsolicited phone call.   Please never give out your PIN, SSN, DOB or your account number to anyone calling you and asking for it.
  • Do Not give out your online banking information.  Please do not give out your account/password/pin.
  • Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits.  Scammers are trying to get you to buy products that aren’t proven to treat or prevent the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores.
  • Hang up on robocalls.  Don’t press any numbers. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes.
  • Checks:  Don’t respond to texts and emails about checks from the government.  Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.
  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.
  • Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Fact-check information. Scammers, and sometimes well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been verified.
  • Charitable Donations:  Please do your homework.  If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
