Remarks to COVID-19

May 15, 2020

As we begin to transition to the new normal, outside of the pandemic, we have a few things we want to update you on. 
First off we will still be operating our lobby access by appointment only through the week of May 18th. During this week of transition we ask that you bear with us as we prepare to resume a more normal open lobby operation the week of Tuesday, May 26th. Note that we will have some necessary limitations on the number of people allowed in the building at a time, but for the most part it will be business as usual. To best protect our staff and membership, we do ask that while you are in our building that you wear a mask. If you do not have one, we would be happy to provide one for you upon entering the credit union. We will have floor stickers to remind you of the required social distancing standards set by the CDC. Flu barriers have been set up at all member and staff interaction points for additional safety. 
Another change we want to communicate with you is that our Caldwell St. office, located at 310 Caldwell Street in Chillicothe, is now open on Saturdays from 8:30am to 1pm. This is something that started during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue moving forward. This change means that our offices will now close at 5pm on Fridays. We want to do what is best for our members and our employees but that means adjusting our hours to ensure we are serving both to the best of our ability. This time adjustment will allow us the additional hours each week to service our members, and we are excited about that. 
Please keep in mind that during this time everything is fluid, we may have to make some changes as we are directed to do so by our federal and state leaders. We will do everything we can to communicate with our membership and assist you to the best of our ability. As always our members come first and we are proud of the heritage Homeland Credit Union has created as a strong and safe member service institution.

Important Tax Refund
Direct Deposit Information

Due to new system procedures we are unable to manually process tax refunds that have incorrect account number information. In the instance where a Direct Deposit IRS or State tax refund account number is incorrect the refund will be returned to the IRS or State Department of Taxation and you will receive a check in place of a direct deposit. To avoid a delay in your refund it is important that you have correct direct deposit information that you provide the IRS or your tax preparer. Please call (740) 775-3331 or stop by one of our branches and speak to one of our Financial Service Representatives if you have any questions.
