COVID-19 Update (5/27/2021)

Masks will no longer be required effective June 2, 2021

As recommended by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, as of June 2nd:  “Ohio will be amending our remaining health orders to comply with the new CDC guidance, which says that those who have been vaccinated no longer need to wear masks, while those who have not been vaccinated should still wear a mask and socially distance.”

Therefore, as of June 2nd, Summit FCU will no longer require staff or members entering our buildings to wear masks or face coverings.  The Plexiglas barriers will remain in place for now, but the ropes in front of the teller windows will be removed along with the social distancing floor stickers. For anyone, employees and/or members, who have not been vaccinated, or who would prefer to wear masks, they are still welcome to do so. 

COVID -19 Update (11/23/2020)

As some of the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted from Ohio’s businesses, we are excited to announce the reopening of our lobbies on Wednesday, June 10th.  We will be open regular hours, including Saturday.

COVID-19 Update (4/17/2020)

We know a lot of you are still waiting for your Stimulus check/deposit.  For those who didn’t receive theirs with the first distribution on Wednesday, April 15th, you may be able to find out when to expect it.  The IRS launched the Get My Payment portal on Wednesday in efforts to help expedite the distribution of economic stimulus payments.

Through the portal, individuals are able to track the status of their payment, including the date a payment is scheduled to be deposited or mailed. Additionally, eligible individuals can provide their bank account information to receive payment more quickly.

COVID-19 Update (3/30/2020)

There is no higher priority for our entire Summit Federal family than the health and safety of our members and staff.  As we adjust to the new rhythms of our daily lives, we once again want to share the most recent actions we’re taking.  So that we can have as many staff members available to serve your needs during the week, we will be temporarily stopping office hours on Saturdays.  Our regular hours in each office, for now, will remain the same except for Saturday.  Please see our previous post regarding ways to transact your financial business without leaving the safety of your home. 

As always, please call if you have any questions.  Thank you and stay safe!

Summit Federal Credit Union is actively monitoring developments and guidance around the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our COVID-19 preparedness is coordinated as part of our credit union-wide business continuity efforts and is intended to allow us to support our members' needs with minimal disruption in the event of a pandemic outbreak. 

Top of mind is the health and welfare of our employees and members. As a result, we have enacted the following precautionary measures, among others:

  • Quarantining employees who have traveled to countries with Level 3 or higher travel advisories by the U.S. State Department, where there are pronounced COVID-19 outbreaks
  • Limiting domestic business air travel
  • Asking employees who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home
  • Enabling some of our employees to work remotely
  • Doing all we can to keep our employees abreast of COVID-19 developments

Currently, we are not experiencing unusual employee absenteeism and are conducting business as usual.  As this is a rapidly changing situation, we will continue to keep you apprised as we know more.

Visiting Summit Federal Credit Union?

Please remember, many transactions don’t require you to come into the office.  Deposits can be made through our Web-24 app remotely, by mail, or night deposit at our buildings, and you can make withdrawals through our network of ATMs with no fees or cash a check at your local grocery store. 

If you are visiting our office and/or branch location, we respectfully ask members who have flu-like symptoms or have traveled to these countries (China, Iran, South Korea and or Italy) in the past 14 days that have a Level 3 or higher travel advisory by the U.S. State Department to meet instead by phone.  If that’s not possible, conduct business by calling us from our parking lot and we will be happy to come out to assist you. We appreciate your support in maintaining a safe and healthy workplace environment.
