A message to PCU members about COVID-19
For the safety of our staff and members we will remain open by drive-thru only. Lobbies will be accessible by appointment for Preferred Credit Union Members only for reasons such loans and other essential services that can’t be completed by drive-thru. Members can make an appointment by calling 800-328-4131 or visiting Contact Us.
Please keep in mind that Kalamazoo and Hastings do not have a drive-thru and will only be accessible by appointment. Check here for the closest Shared Branching location.
As our communities continue to feel the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we realize that many of our members are living in uncertain times financially and may be concerned how they will make their loan payments over the coming months. We are committed to the safety and well-being of our members and staff, both physically and financially.
