OCCU snapshot: a quick take on what’s new

  • You are a force for good. At OCCU, we’re people helping people. We accompany our members on their financial journeys with products, services and insights to help them thrive, and we work to improve and enrich the lives of our community at large. But we can’t do any of it without you. When you choose OCCU to invest in yourself, you’re investing in others as well. Your membership creates momentum that leads to a brighter future, for you and your community. Discover how.
     
  • Play ball! We’ve teamed up with the Eugene Emeralds to bring you OCCU Fridays at PK Park. OCCU members get BOGO tickets for every Friday home game just by showing their OCCU debit card at the box office or purchasing tickets online using the code OCCUFridays22. The offer lasts all season, so you have plenty of chances to cheer on the Ems and give Sluggo a high-five. Sounds like a home run to us!
     
  • Got questions? As an OCCU member, you have access to a wide variety of products and services to fit your life and help you thrive. But with so many benefits come just as many questions. Check out our FAQ and find the answers you’re looking for.
     
  • Junction City, we're open! OCCU is growing, and we put down roots in Junction City. Our new branch, located at 94606 Highway 99W, near the Grocery Outlet and Starbucks, is open. Our Junction City team can’t wait to meet you there.

+   We’ve got your back   

It’s perfectly natural to be concerned about your financial security. Even in times of prosperity, you should be mindful of potential issues with your savings and investments. And as news swirls about a potential government shutdown, it’s OK to worry.

But there’s no need to stress.

Remember: This isn’t the first time the country has faced a roadblock like this. And banking systems have evolved considerably since the Great Depression, or even 1987’s Black Monday. “There wasn’t the huge, centralized banking system we have now,” says Heather Metcalf AWMA® , OCCU financial advisor. “There are a lot of rules in place to prevent that from happening again.”

It’s also important to keep in mind that when your money is deposited into a checking or savings account, it’s insured. Your OCCU accounts — all credit union accounts, in fact — are insured by the NCUA up to at least $250,000 per individual depositor. If it’s in an OCCU account, it’s safe with us.

If you’re concerned about how a shutdown might affect your financial well-being, let us help. No matter where you are on your financial journey, our team of advisors can help you get on track, stay the course, or reroute. Let’s talk.

“There will always be movements in the market,” Metcalf said. “And you can’t have a rainbow without rain.” As an OCCU member, you have a partner with a vested interest in your financial success. When you bank with us, we have your back, rain or shine.

+   Improving your credit card user experience: what’s next?   

The next phase of improvements to your cardholder experience is coming soon. This next round will merge card management into MyOCCU Online & Mobile, which means you’ll be able to access all your OCCU accounts, including your credit card, in one location.

The changes are coming in June, but there are some things you need to know ahead of time.

  • Your new card will arrive in early June. Keep it someplace safe until it’s time to activate it.
  • We’ll send you notifications — via email and mail — to let you know the activation date and other important details about your OCCU credit card.
  • Pay close attention to those notifications. Your current card will stop working on the activation date.
  • When it’s time to activate your new card, call the phone number on the slip that was included with it. You’ll confirm some personal information to complete the process.
  • If you’re not using MyOCCU Online & Mobile already, now’s a great time to enroll.

You can get more information on the upgrade here. And keep an eye out for notifications in your mailbox and inbox for the latest info about your new credit card.
