A Message from Our CEO

I am writing to inform you of actions First Choice Community Credit Union is taking to address the Coronavirus (COVID-19). First and foremost, please take the necessary precautions to ensure the health, safety and well-being of your families during this unprecedented time; there is no higher priority.

As always, our highest priority is to serve you, our member owners. We are committed to providing you with uninterrupted, reliable access to the products and services you have trusted us to provide to you and your family.


As concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus grow, we have decided to take prudent steps to help slow the spread of the virus. We will close our lobby for teller transactions beginning March 19th until further notice. Our drive-thru windows will be open and our MSR’s ready to assist you. Loan applications are still being accepted and processed over the phone, online or via DocuSign. We will continue to closely monitor developments to ensure we are well prepared to support you. We have comprehensive business continuity and preparedness plans in place. Below are some items we wanted to hi-light for you:


We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) Our employees have received specific instructions about the importance of washing their hands and are taking additional cleaning measures at our branches. Per CDC recommendations, we ask employees who have traveled outside of the U.S. or have been exposed to others who have traveled to affected locations to self-quarantine for 14 days. In addition, we are limiting non-essential travel. We are encouraging our employees and business providers to “Travel by Tech.” For the safety of yourself and others, we encourage you to use the drive thru facilities at each location, especially if you are not feeling well.


We encourage you to use FCCCU’s online and mobile banking resources which will allow you to access your accounts 24/7.  You can access your account online or by using our mobile application at your convenience. From either, you can make payments, deposit checks, transfer funds, view transactions, check your account balances, find an ATM and even apply for a loan. In most cases, it is easier and faster to manage your accounts online or via our mobile application, especially given call volumes and anticipated wait times. If you have not enrolled in online or mobile access, you may do so here.

We are sympathetic to our members that find themselves facing financial difficulties.  We are here to help and encourage our members who have been impacted to reach out to us to discuss what we may do to continue to serve you.

While it is impossible for anyone to predict the spread of Coronavirus, it does not alter our continuous focus to serve you.  We have the people, technology, and tools to do so.

Stay healthy,

Carisa Chitwood, CEO
First Choice Community Credit Union
