COVID-19 Update

Updated on May 5, 2020

We are here for you.

As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19, we want you to know that we care about your health and safety. We are taking steps to help minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our members, employees and the communities we serve.

 

We temporarily closed our branch lobbies effective Tuesday, March 31st.  Drive thru lanes and ATMs will remain open, and lobbies will be available by appointment only for our Orange Grove, Downtown Gulfport and D'Iberville branch locations.  Our Bay St. Louis branch is currently open at limited capacity for lobby access.  The Bay St Louis location will accommodate the CDC’s recommended social distancing and a representative will be on-hand to assist members adhering to the guidelines and with any issues they may have.

Effective Monday, May 11th, all GCCFCU branches will resume regular operating hours for our drive thru teller lanes: 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Friday.  We will remain open via drive thru and in person by appointment only in the branch lobbies at this time, with the exception of the Bay St. Louis branch, which is open at limited capacity in the lobby from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

If you have any questions regarding this change, please call the Call Center, also operating during normal business hours (9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. on Friday) at 228-539-7029, Option 2.

Please note that if you make an appointment to enter one of our branches, we ask that you bring and wear a face mask as per the latest CDC recommendations.  Keeping both our members and employees safe is our highest priority.

  • If you cannot utilize the drive thru and must come into the branch, hand sanitizer is available at each teller station and loan office for our members.
  • Gulf Coast Community Federal Credit Union has hired a professional cleaning service to completely clean and sanitize all branches four times each week.
  • We are monitoring the spread of the virus at the local & national levels and are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We are working on transferring more of our staff to the Call Center in an effort to answer your questions in a timely manner. Please be patient with us as we work through the transition.

As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19, we wanted to share ways we can help minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our members, employees and the communities we serve.  And, if you have been financially impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak, we encourage you to call us to see how our Hardship Assistance Program can benefit you.  This Program has many solutions, including payment reduction relief and payment deferments for our consumer and mortgage loans.
