OUCU Provides $20,000 in COVID-19 Relief Grants
Thanks to our partnership with the Ohio Credit Union Foundation, OUCU has provided $20,000 in financial assistance grants to 40 member households that have lost income due to COVID-19. Each household received $500 for groceries, utilities, or rent. The majority of households requested grocery or utility assistance, while nine households requested rent assistance.
The program was announced on Monday, June 15 and reached capacity in a matter of hours.
A grant from the Ohio Credit Union Foundation of $10,000 and a match of $10,000 from OUCU made this program possible.
OUCU is committed to supporting our community during this difficult time. This includes the adoption of a number of new policies aimed at easing the financial challenges members face. Those experiencing financial difficulties are encouraged to contact Member Services at (740) 597-2800 or email@example.com to discuss available options. The latest news and announcements related to the impacts of COVID-19 can be found here.
We’re proud to be part of the credit union movement where “people helping people” is something we do every day. We’re here for our members and our community. We’ll get through this together.
OUCU Achieves Exceptional Performance Designation
BauerFinancial, Inc., the nation’s premier bank and credit union rating firm, announced that OUCU, has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates OUCU excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 47 consecutive quarters, means OUCU has done so continuously since August 2008. This achievement has secured an even higher designation for OUCU as an “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”. This title is reserved for institutions that have earned Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters (ten years) or longer.
OUCU is the only credit union in the area to be awarded a 5-Star rating.
“Embracing their ‘People Helping People’ core value,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “the nation’s credit unions are well-positioned to help local communities thrive. In fact,” she continued, “credit unions are local small businesses themselves, and their employees are members. Through shared experiences, they know exactly what other members need, and they have the means to help provide it. This has proven a winning combination for OUCU.”

BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS
Fraudsters never give up and neither do we! Beware of phone calls that appear to be coming from the credit union. We will never call you and ask you for your card number, member number, SSN or PIN. Never give out personal information to someone who calls you.
If there is suspicious transaction on your credit or debit, you may need to verify a purchase with a yes or a no, but we will never ask for your card information.
