We are here to help you. Learn More.
At Mutual Savings Credit Union we understand your concern surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are committed to helping our members during this period of uncertainty.
Coronavirus Update: 5-15-2020
We have some happy news to share. Mutual Savings Credit Union will open all branch lobbies on Monday, May 18, 2020. We look forward to seeing and welcoming you back to the friendly faces you’ve known for so long. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact both financially and emotionally on everyone. We are aware of the concern many people have venturing out to those businesses that are re-opening. We are taking every precaution to keep our members and employees safe. We will be wiping down the transaction areas between each member visit as well as ensuring our branches are cleaned properly each night.
Assisting our Vulnerable Members First – 8:30 am – 9:30 am lobby hours.
For a limited time our lobbies will be dedicated to those vulnerable members of the population from 8:30 am -9:30 am. Per the State of Alabama Amended Safe at Home Order, dated May 11, 2020; vulnerable persons means individuals 65 years and older or individuals with serious underlying health conditions, including high blood pressure, chronic lung disease, diabetes, obesity, asthma, and those whose immune system is compromised such as a chemotherapy for cancer and other conditions requiring such therapy. Please help us provide a safe environment for these members.
While our lobbies are open, and in respect of other members, we recommend that you follow the state ordinance and the social distancing guidelines.
- Maintain 6 feet of separation between you and others unless in the same household.
- We recommend that only individuals conducting transactions enter the lobby area unless you are providing assistance to another individual or they are a dependent.
- If you are sick or are feeling unwell, please stay home.
- If you are wearing a mask or face protection, we may ask you to briefly lower your mask for identification purposes.
You may notice a few additions to our lobbies.
We’re doing our part in the lobbies where we serve you. The following changes have been made to provide a safe, clean environment for you to conduct your business:
- Sneeze guards for tellers & members;
- Desk dividers for employees & members;
- Floor stickers where members must stand during the short wait for a teller;
- Reduced seating capacity with more room between chairs;
- Hand sanitizer in lobby areas (when available by manufacturer);
- Lobby and door notices encouraging the social distance and health safety guidelines.
Optimize your account access with electronic services and appointments.
While we look forward to seeing you, we still strongly recommend that you access your account via home, mobile and telephone banking services. With Mobile Deposit you can use a smart phone to deposit a check into your account.* At available locations, our drive-thrus remain open during regular business hours. We continue to make appointments for loan closings and for additional documents that require a signature. We are here to serve you in many ways:
- Home banking
- Mobile banking
- Telephone banking
- Mobile Deposit
- Call Center Support
- Online Loan Applications
- Drive-thru at available locations
- ATM access for withdrawals
- Appointments for loan closings
- Lobby access

Coronavirus Update: 5-1-2020
We continue to maintain social distancing and will be keeping our lobbies closed. The target date to return to normal business operations is May 15th, which will be greatly impacted by the decisions of Gov. Ivey.
As we have during the last 6 weeks, we are making appointments to close loans and to meet with members whose documents require a signature. Prior to making an appointment, you will be asked a few health screening questions. If we are unable to make an appointment for you in our lobby, we will make every attempt to find a solution. Our drive-thrus are all open with exception of our Riverchase branch. As you know, we transitioned the Riverchase branch to support the increased call demand in the call center.
We strongly encourage the use of our online platforms such as home, mobile and telephone banking programs. Mobile Deposits and Bill Pay are also safe options for deposits and paying your monthly bills. We’ve seen more and more members use Mobile Deposit to deposit their checks. All of these services are safe, convenient and designed for you.
We continue to find ways to serve you during these unprecedented times. Thank you for being a member of Mutual Savings Credit Union.

Coronavirus Update: 4-02-2020
As we enter a second period of social distancing, Mutual Savings wanted to take a moment to update you on our continued commitment to service. In the past, we sent monthly emails to members to update you on the events at our credit union. However, during the COVID-19 outbreak, it is our intent to increase the number of emails sent to you so that we can provide information, updates and hopefully answer any questions that might arise. If you are not on our email list we encourage you to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and your name will be added to our list.
The health and safety of our members, employees and community continues to be a top priority. We closed our lobby access to help decrease potential spreading of the virus. We are making appointments to close loans and to meet with members whose documents require a signature. Prior to making an appointment, you will be asked a few health screening questions. If we are unable to make an appointment for you in our lobby, we will make every attempt to find a solution. Your health, the health of our employees who serve you and that of their families is a priority. Please be patient with us as we go through this epic time in our country – indeed, throughout the world.
Our drive-thrus are all open with exception of our Riverchase branch. We transitioned the Riverchase branch to support the increased call demand in the call center. All branches are making appointments when necessary. Mutual members are also enjoying the convenience of instant issue debit and credit cards. Access your account with our convenient home, mobile and telephone banking programs. Mobile banking and bill pay are also safe options for deposits and paying your monthly bills.
We wish you safety and wellness during this pandemic we are enduring. As always thank you for being a member of Mutual Savings Credit Union. We appreciate your business.
