Branch Reopen Plan

May 19, 2020

The government of Saskatchewan has introduced a phase approach in regards to the reopening of business during the COVID-19 pandemic. The second phase on May 19, 2020 will primarily open retail operations in the province. Plainsview Credit Union has made the decision to reopen 4 branches on this date, Kipling, Montmartre, Emerald Park and Indian Head.

While branch and other retail operations in our communities will reopen, we must still be cautious and prudent in our branches and in our communities to ensure we keep our everybody safe. We continue to encourage all members to use online features as often as possible and only come into the branch for essential transactions.

Upon entry into the branches please follow these guidelines:

Member Guidelines:

  • Social distancing - Maintain a distance of 6 feet apart while waiting in line
  • Designated a banker - We recommend when possible that each family designate 1 person to complete their banking needs. If you are conducting banking for someone else, please ensure you have their full account details
  • Sanitation - Must use hand sanitized before entering the branch or completing a transaction
  • Member Capacity - Adhere to branch limits as to how many members in branch at one time

All requests to see a Financial Consultant / Advisor will be by appointment only. This allows for proper sanitizing between appointments.

Please call us if you have any questions before coming to the branch.

COVID 19-Service Delivery Change

Service Delivery Change – Effective Friday, March 20th, 2020

 

Plainsview Credit Union recognizes the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus and the unease many are facing. Our main priorities are keeping our members, employees and communities safe while maintaining our service to you.

In the face of this crisis, we are changing how we serve our members.  Effective March 20th at the end of the business day, Plainsview Credit Union will temporarily suspend all In-Branch Services.  

We understand your concerns and will continue to provide access to necessary banking services. Although our doors will not be open to the public, we will have staff available to answer your calls and process transactions.

We ask that you use online banking, mobile apps or our ATM network to perform your day to day transactions such as depositing cheques, paying bills, and account inquiries. Alternative methods and actions we will be implementing include:

  • Using our night deposit to drop off cheques and bill payments for processing. (Our staff will be processing these transactions regularly throughout the day.)
  • Waiving fees for phone transactions.
  • Working with our personal, farm and business members on a case-by-case basis to help our members manage through this challenging time.
  • Reaching out to our key community organizations, business & consumer members to reduce impacts of this temporary change in service.
  • Phone interviews for your investment, lending and other advisory service needs.

 

Please call your local branch and we will work with you to meet your financial needs.  We anticipate increased call volumes, so please be patient. Rest assured our staff will be here to help you.

We are doing our best to navigate these uncertain times as the progress of the virus continues, and the impact is made known. We thank you for your support in keeping the health and safety of our members and employees the priority.

Ways to Bank Remotely

Over the last number of weeks, we have seen an increased concern related to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We recognize that this may be an unsettling time and want to ensure that our staff, members, and communities are our top priority.
