A message to our members from our CEO
During the last few weeks, the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19) has gained much worldwide attention. It’s safe to say that because “we don’t know what we don’t know” about the virus, it has created a heightened sense of caution and in some cases fear. During this time the leadership team of your Credit Union has been maintaining a close watch on the developments of this disease. Everyone agrees that maintaining your health and practicing great hygiene are some of the best preparations we can follow. Del-One is implementing steps that will help keep our members and staff physically and financially healthy, in the face of this pandemic.
What is Del-One doing, right now to keep you healthy?
The Credit Union is installing hand sanitizing stations in all our locations. Our staff is increasing efforts to sanitize surfaces in our Branches, including our Interactive Teller Machines (ITM) and our ATMs. Credit Union managers will ensure our staff stays healthy or have them stay home, if they have flu symptoms. And, if you don’t feel well you can still complete your financial transactions using mobile banking, online banking and Del-One’s ITMs.
What is Del-One doing to keep you financially healthy during the Pandemic?
If your income is impacted due to you becoming ill with the Coronavirus, or your company must close due to the pandemic, Del-One has developed an Emergency Loan Program. Our members can apply for this loan that is intended to help you with living expenses. Information on the loan program’s easy requirements are available at our web site: Del-One.org, by calling our Contact Center (302) 739-4496, or visiting one of Del-One’s 11 Branch locations throughout Delaware.
For 60 years, Del-One Federal Credit Union has offered financial products and advice to help members develop, gain and enjoy their financial freedom. We believe that by being prudent and cautious, we will collectively get through this pandemic. Thank you for being member/owners of Del-One Federal Credit Union and allowing us to serve you, every day!
