We would like to reassure customers that the member institutions are committed to supporting you through this difficult time, and are taking added precautions to keep our customers and employees safe, as far as possible.
We recognize that direct access to your finances is important to you and encourage all customers to reduce your in-branch transactions as much as possible and also recommend using the various delivery channels:
• Make use of Online and/or Mobile Banking for your transactions
• Avoid the crowd and – use your bank’s ATM network
• Try as much as possible to use your debit card, credit card or prepaid card and limit cash transactions
• Make use of Night depository for commercial customers and
contact the member institutions by phone or e-mail
Using these channels would reduce the need to visit your bank and therefore limit your possible exposure to the virus. We are here to help, and encourage you to contact your Institution, should you require access to any of the channels listed above, which are safe, easy and available 24/7.
As this situation continues to evolve, we remain committed to supporting you and keeping you informed.
