Protecting our members and employees
As a precaution, we have invested in additional cleaning and disinfecting services at all of our locations and have put Social Distancing best practices in place that are in line with CDC recommendations. Furthermore, our employees are exercising everyday preventative measures like washing hands regularly and cleaning personal workspaces to help prevent the spread of germs.
What can you do: Personal Preventative Measures
While there is currently no vaccine to protect against the coronavirus, the CDC and NYSDOH recommend the following everyday preventative actions to minimize the spread of all communicable diseases, including COVID-19:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Practice social distancing – temporarily reduce non-essential interactions in large group settings
- Limit handshaking when possible
- Stay home when you are sick
Your security is important to us. Scammers are already attempting to take advantage of the public’s uncertainty during this pandemic, and we want to remind you to be vigilant against fraudulent phone calls, emails and text messages.
Teachers Federal Credit Union will NEVER contact you directly to request full account numbers, passwords, debit or credit card numbers, expiration dates, (PIN) personal identification numbers or social security numbers. If you feel you have received a fraudulent email or call and are concerned about potential fraud on your account, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or our Call Center immediately.
