COVID-19 Updates

COVID-19 Updates 


Effective June 28, 2020

In light of the increased cases of COVID-19 in our community, Education First FCU has made the decision to temporarily close the lobbies of the Lamar, Laurel, Jasper and Rosedale branches, as well as the Administration Building.  This decision was made in the interest of protecting the health of our members, employees, and the safety of our community.

Please note that all branch services are available at the drive-thru, including account opening, card replacement, cashiers checks, etc.  Additionally, we offer a full suite of online services, including loan applications, online banking, remote check deposit via mobile device and bill payment services. Learn more about these convenience services.

If you require access to your safe deposit box, please call us at 409.898.3770 to discuss arrangements.
