5 Financial Steps To Prepare for Coronavirus COVID-19
NuMark Credit Union is here for whatever comes next. Many around the world are affected by the outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19. It has swept the nation with a total of over 300,000 confirmed cases worldwide and counting. During this uncertain time, your health, family and finances are most important. NuMark understands that there are concerns when it comes to preserving your financial well-being.
The Credit Union National Association has suggested taking five steps to protect your assets.
Contact Your Financial Institution:
Credit unions from coast to coast are adjusting their operations to help stem the spread of Coronavirus and protect members and employees. Make sure you’re up to date on the latest information on lobby closures, hours of operation, and drive-up services and ATM access by contacting or visiting the website of your financial institution. To ensure the safety of our members and staff, NuMark has closed all branch lobbies; however, the drive- up is open for normal business hours. You can also visit one of our 29,000+ Surcharge Free ATMs. To find an ATM closest to your home, click on Branch Locations & ATMs.
Protect Your Data:
Make sure that you are protecting yourself and your money. Beware of scams. Unfortunately, scammers are taking advantage of the situation and sending phishing emails asking for personal information. Remember, NuMark Credit Union will never ask for your debit card number, PIN or CVV number (the three digits on the back of your card) nor will we send you an email asking for your personal information. If you are concerned about who may be calling or emailing your, do not give them any information, do not click on anything and hang up and call us directly at 815-729-3211.

Remember, Your Money is Safest in a Credit Union:
Credit unions offer a safe place for members to save money. You can have peace of mind knowing that your money is federally insured. All deposits at federally insured credit unions are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, with deposits insured up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor. Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union. Additional information on NCUA share insurance coverage for consumers is available at Mycreditunion.gov.
