March 17, 2020
At Chessie Federal Credit Union, our greatest concern is the health and safety of our Members and Employees. As such, we are closely monitoring the daily developments regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). We are following guidance from Government and State and Local officials.
At this time, all of our Branches will remain open and are operating under normal business hours. Should that change due to emerging health threat or request from government leaders, you have our commitment for timeliness and transparency. Our website will remain up to date and we will alert you of any changes through Email, Facebook and your local media.
As a precaution, we are doing additional cleaning and disinfecting at each office above and beyond what we do daily. Furthermore, our employees are practicing preventative measures like washing hands regularly and cleaning personal workspaces to help prevent the spread of germs.
We want to assure you that we are taking all the necessary steps to guarantee that you have full access to your various accounts.
During this time, we want to remind you to be vigilant against scams, including fraudulent phone calls and text messages. Chessie Federal Credit Union will never contact you directly to request account numbers, passwords, debit or credit card numbers, expiration dates, personal identification numbers or social security numbers. If you feel you have received a fraudulent call and are concerned about potential fraud on your account, please contact us immediately.
Overdraft Privilege (Courtesy Pay Users)
Overdraft Privilege Extended Coverage Federal Regulation requirement.
Members who want to continue authorizing Chessie FCU to pay overdrafts on your ATM and everyday DEBIT CARD transactions must choose to have Extended Coverage. A new Federal Regulation requires that you personally choose Extended Coverage for these transactions. If you currently use Overdraft Privilege and you want Chessie to pay your ATM and everyday DEBIT CARD transactions please choose Extended Coverage now. The Federal Regulation went into effect on August 15, 2010. If you choose to have Standard Coverage, Chessie will no longer authorize and pay overdrafts for ATM and everyday DEBIT CARD transactions. Your checks and other transactions made using your checking number and automatic bill payments will still be paid. If you have any questions about the regulation, please contact us at 301-777-1781*1-800-437-1057 or a branch location.
