Board Selects Laurie Cappelli, CCUE, CCE, for Position

CCU has also received the designation of Certified Development Financial Institution from the U. S. Department of the Treasury, which recognizes financial institutions fostering community growth. CCU truly appreciates Mr. Brock’s dedicated years of service to our members, the CCU Board of Directors volunteers who represent the membership, our employees, and the community.

CCU Phone Menu Update: Self-Authentication
Updated November 17, 2017
Beginning on or shortly after Wednesday, November 29, you may hear a new prompt when you call the CCU main number. This new step will provide you with increased security and make the call go more quickly once a representative answers.
Whether or not you hear this prompt will depend on the option you choose and whether there is a CCU representative immediately available to answer your call.
Here’s what to expect:
1. If you select an option that directs you to a CCU representative but there is no one immediately available, you will be placed on hold as you are now. But, instead of hearing hold music or messaging, you will be asked to enter your Member Number.
2. After you enter your Member Number, you will then be asked to enter a PIN (Personal Identification Number):
a. If you are already set up for Telli, you will simply use that PIN.
b. If you have never set up a Telli PIN, you will be prompted to enter the last 4 digits of the primary account holder’s Social Security Number. Then, you will be prompted to create a PIN between 4 and 6 digits long.
3. After you enter your PIN, you will hear some information about your CCU accounts: pending deposits, available balance, and the last 5 transactions. What you hear will be based on the types of accounts you have with CCU.
4. Once a representative answers after a brief hold, your account information will be presented to the CCU representative. As now, the representative will ask who he or she is speaking with. Depending on your request, the representative may ask you one or more security questions in order to confirm that you are the authorized account holder.
If you do not have your Member Number or PIN, you can skip this step by simply staying on the phone after hearing the prompt. When a CCU representative answers the call, he or she will ask for your Member Number and ask you some security questions to verify your identity.
Don’t know your Member Number? Request it now so you are ready to take advantage of this new feature! For your security, we do not provide Member Numbers directly over the phone. You can request your number by calling and we will mail the number to the address of record for the account. You can also request by logging in to eBranch Online Banking or the Mobile App and sending a secure message or asking the next time you visit a CCU branch.
Please note that Telli is not changing! If you call the Telli number, you will continue to enter the same information.
Currently, we anticipate launching the new menu on Wednesday, November 29.
We are pleased to offer you this new option as part of our continuing effort to protect your accounts while providing you with convenient access.
