March 10, 2020:


Good morning valued member,
Our first priority – now and always – is the health and safety of our members, our employees and the communities we serve.


We have all seen the media coverage related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) increase over the past several weeks and I appreciate and share your concerns as the global impact continues to grow. At OCCU, we are carefully monitoring updates from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and taking steps to ensure the availability of our services to you.


We are taking a cautious, informed and deliberate approach and I want to assure you that we have a team preparing for various scenarios. As part of our business continuity program, we have a formal pandemic plan to help ensure we can provide our members with ongoing services. This includes the ability for staff to work from home and cross-training to ensure backup for critical functions.


This outbreak and the threats it’s presenting are changing rapidly. We will continue to communicate with you through our normal channels and/or publish information on our website, as needed. All our branches and online and phone services remain fully available to you; and should you choose to stay home during the coming weeks, you can access your OCCU accounts online at MyOCCU.org, via our mobile app and by calling us at 800.365.1111.


We greatly value your membership with OCCU.


Healthy regards,

Ron Neumann
President & CEO
