As we are closely monitoring the current situation and following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local authorities, protecting the well- being of our members, employees and the community from the spread of the COVID-19 virus is important and a priority.

We also have 24/7 call center support for inquiries and general questions. We are taking precautions where possible to protect our members and employees. If the situation changes and branch hours must be adjusted, we will update members on our website, through social media and via email.
For 24/7, non-branch access to your accounts, you may take advantage of our Personal Finance Manager (online banking), Mobile Finance Manager (mobile banking), Drive-up Video Tellers, Teller-Phone, Night Depositories, our SURF Network surcharge-free ATMs throughout Maine, or by calling us at (800) 696-8628.

Please also be aware that during these vulnerable times, fraudsters and cyber criminals will actively prey on folks with the intentions of gaining trust and information that they can use to obtain access to your accounts. Please remember that we would never ask you for logon credentials, or answers to your online banking security questions over the phone.

We encourage you to follow the CDC’s recommendations for preventing the spread of this and other infectious viruses, including regularly washing your hands and staying home if you are ill. We also recommend washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after using an ATM, drive up video teller, or other high-touch device.
