As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to reverberate and disorient the economy and residents of Western, MA we’re prepared to play our role as systemic stabilizers. For the financial health of our members, employees, community and economy at large, we will continue to do business through our drive-up windows, ATMs, call center and online and mobile banking platforms. While branch lobbies are closed until further notice, members can have peace of mind knowing that virtually all banking can be done through the drive-up windows, through our mobile app, online or over the phone quickly and easily.
Besides having navigated recessions, war time, natural disasters and now a global pandemic, we have generations of experience on our side, plus deposits that are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000 and by the Massachusetts Share Insurance Corporation (MSIC) in excess of $250,000. With a strong capital position and superior asset quality, the Polish National Credit Union is positioned to weather this storm. Rest assured, the safest place for your money is inside our financial institution.
While we are hopeful the worst is behind us, PNCU has planned for an acute period of disruption for multiple months, spanning our entire footprint and with a view of all stakeholders. This puts us in a position to control this situation to the best of our ability. We have stress tested our remote capabilities, financials and have laid groundwork for a smooth transition between the present and foreseeable future.
As social distancing measures increase in the coming days, we understand the increased pressure this puts on you and the changes this brings to your everyday life. Our team is here to help our members through whatever the coming weeks and months may bring. We’re encouraging members to check for PNCU updates by visiting www.pncu.com/covid-19 regularly and to give us a call at (413) 592-9495 if you’re experiencing a hardship. Difficult times reveal our true character, our true colors and our ability to do the right thing by our members.
