At PEFCU we are always seeking better ways to serve our members. We care deeply about your experiences with us, both good and bad. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and we understand that the best way to show our continued commitment to providing great member service is by constantly training and coaching our employees. Since the time available to train and coach is scarce, we are making a permanent change to our office lobby (all PEFCU offices) opening times beginning Wednesday, July 10th in order to facilitate the training and coaching process.
Effective beginning Wednesday, July 10th (and all subsequent Wednesdays after that) all offices of PEFCU will not open until 10:00 am. The offices will continue to open at 8:30 am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays as always. The later opening on Wednesdays will allow us to devote the necessary time to training and coaching. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of your Credit Union.

An amendment to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. You may order your reports from one, two, or all three of the nationwide consumer reporting companies at the same time, or you may stagger your requests. It's your choice.
