The leaves are not the only things changing this autumn….many exciting changes are also happening at Peach State FCU!
First and foremost, I am pleased to officially announce the merger of Richmond Community FCU with Peach State FCU, and personally welcome the 3,000+ new members to our credit union family. With our expanded membership and geographical footprint, Peach State is solidly positioned for new growth and opportunity ahead. We know our new members will enjoy the many products, services and conveniences already available at Peach State today, as well as the new services to come in the next few months including the migration of their finances to our data processing system.
In addition to the work we are conducting to transition our new members, Peach State will launch our mobile check deposit service this quarter. We apologize for the delay in rolling this service out, however we wanted to err on the side of caution, and take the additional time needed to ensure a quality service that both functions properly and is free of technical glitches.
During this same time frame, we will also launch our new online banking system which promises a greater Web-based member experience. A few of the enhancements the new system will provide include a clean, fresh look; a more user friendly format; a higher performance rate and superior flexibility in customization. The new system has been thoroughly evaluated by our staff and we trust you’ll be pleased with the improved functionality.
We are very excited about our new EMV (Europay, MasterCard® and VISA®) chip cards, but we encourage you to carefully read all of the instructions on how to use these new cards as they are significantly different from the debit/credit cards you have used in the past. You could very well damage or lose your card if you do not follow the instructions. For more details, visit the EMV page on our website.
Lastly, we are pleased with the positive feedback we’ve received thus far on our recently launched program, Peach State Investment Services.* The program offers retirement, insurance and investment strategies designed to help you and your family with financial planning now and for the future. If you haven’t had a chance to speak with the advisor, Dan Harmeyer, CFP®, we invite you to do so as we believe proper financial planning can be key to your long term financial success.
Peach State aims to help our members reach their financial goals by offering cost effective products, services and conveniences they need. We hope you’ll find these new and improved services to be helpful and effective to your day-to-day financial management and future prosperity. The progress of all endeavors will be forthcoming through our many communication vehicles including our Web site and Facebook page, so we invite you to stay tuned for additional details.
As always, thank you for choosing Peach State Federal Credit Union as your financial partner!
