Quarterly Vitals - 3rd Quarter 2020

Dear Members,

With summer upon us, it is time to reflect on the past few months with gratitude and appreciation. As a credit union founded by healthcare professionals for healthcare professionals, we are deeply thankful for your hard work, your sacrifice, and the way you continuously care for others. Not all superheroes wear capes! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

We would also like to thank our members for being so patient and understanding during the unforeseen circumstances. Your willingness to use our eServices and help keep our team safe during social distancing is very much appreciated.

Lastly, a big thank you to our Befit team for being financial superheroes during this time and for answering the call to serve our members so they may take care of our communities. We wouldn’t be able to achieve that without the collective and individual efforts of each member on this team.

Thank you for everything you do. With gratitude,

Bobbie K Adams, President/CEO

2nd Quarter 2020

Dear Members

Spring is here—and it’s much different than any of us could have imagined. Usually, spring is a time to enjoy baseball games, 5Ks, gardening and long hikes. It seems like just yesterday we were making plans for spring getaways, graduations, maybe a reunion or a barbeque. Instead, we are dealing with a pandemic.

We know many of our members are dealing with the minute-byminute changes, and we want you to know that our team at Befit is here for you. We thank you for everything you do to care for others. You and our staff are the credit union’s number one concern. Because of that, we will be changing our branch hours effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020 from 10 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday.

In this time, stress can be high and there is uncertainty of what lies ahead. However, we want to help keep your finances manageable. We know this crisis may be impacting you and your family members. We are here to help and have many resources to guide you through these difficult times. If you find yourself in need of assistance, please reach out to us. Please remember to utilize the mobile app and online banking. You can also contact us from 10 am to 5 pm by calling us at 707-557-8900. After hours services such as your Debit, Credit Card, Mortgage and Bill Pay departments are still available.

Checkups aren’t only for your physical and mental well-being, but for your financial health as well. Schedule an appointment for a financial wellness review by emailing our own financial wellness advisor Jackie Brown, or calling us at 707.557.8900 ext. 117. Jackie can conduct this free Wellness Checkup with you by phone or online via Zoom appointments for your convenience.

Your financial needs are top priority and quite frankly, the only reason we exist. Our mission is to help you Be Happy, Be Healthy, and Be Fit Financially!

Thank you for everything you do. With gratitude,
Bobbie K Adams, President/CEO
