The Credit Union has procedures for fairly handling dissatisfied members, account holders, and/or consumers. We examine all complaints and attempt to settle them fairly using a process that is accessible to everyone. It is also recognized that many complaints can be effectively resolved at the point of contact.

For those complaints that cannot be resolved at the point of contact, the Credit Union has established a procedure for escalation and has designated a senior employee responsible for handling these matters. That procedure and designated employee’s contact information is available on the Credit Union website, at the branch, and upon request.

We also have an established process for handling complaints that cannot be resolved through internal avenues.

To identify trends, and the types of complaints lodged, the Credit Union maintains records of complaints received, and the actions taken to address them. The Credit Union will review trends identified in the records on a regular basis to facilitate process improvements and improve Member satisfaction.

While we do strive for excellence in member service, we also recognize at times we may fall short. These times give us opportunities to receive your feedback on how we may improve.

Where a Formal Complaint involves a claim of monetary loss, additional documents may be required such as a copy of the filing of a Police Report and the execution of an affidavit to attest to the truth of the foregoing.

During investigations of alleged fraud, to mitigate further losses, restrictions to services and/or limits may be placed on your account.

In the event the above process does not provide you with satisfactory resolution you may appeal the Complaints Officer’s proposed resolution to the Board.

Appeal to the Board and the resulting Board response will be authorized and communicated through the Complaints Officer.
