Our resilient and dedicated team has worked hard to maintain the exceptional level of service you depend on. We want to thank them and our members for their ongoing flexibility which has allowed us to keep the financial support of our members moving forward.
- Your safety and the safety of our employees remains our top priority which is why we swiftly realigned our business model within 48 hours, moving 75% of our staff to remote spaces and enacting several changes to the policy, procedures, and services that will help to ensure we are protecting your physical health just as much as we care for your financial health. A few of the changes include:
- Enhanced cleaning at the branches
- Requiring that members and employees wear masks
- Taking temperature checks
- Practicing six-foot social distancing
- Providing financial assistance through times of crisis is the heart of On Tap Credit Union. Our teams have provided over $25 million in loan deferments and $350,000 in financial relief via the following solutions. These are still in place that you can leverage if you haven’t already:
- Fee refunds for NSF (non-sufficient funds), early CD withdrawal penalties, and check or card payment by phone and online.
- Removal of savings account transactions limits. You can now access money from your savings account more than six times a month.

- 24/7 access to the Online Banking and the Mobile platform is always a convenient and secure remote solution for you. The need for this has never been greater than during this time with over 500,000 transactions processed through our Mobile and Online platform.
- Through all of this, we are still growing and have welcomed over 800 new members within the communities in which we live and serve in the first half of 2020, bringing our total membership to over 20,000. You can feel reassured that On Tap Credit Union is stronger than ever as we have reached a new high in asset size of $342 million, a milestone we are proud to achieve.
