COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates for RBFCU Members
RBFCU continues to monitor developments and the extent of business closures enacted by various governments. We will make announcements as conditions warrant.

Be on alert for scams and practice ‘financial distancing’ against fraud
We’re asking all members to be on alert for any suspicious emails, phone calls and text messages that may offer deals on medical supplies or health-related items, or fraudulent donation sites that may impersonate our company, charities, or government agencies. This is often called phishing.
These criminals want you to divulge sensitive information, such as usernames and passwords, to make purchases or donations on spoof websites, or to download malware onto your device by opening a malicious attachment.
RBFCU is encouraging our members to practice financial distancing, which means you should not respond to anyone claiming to be a representative of RBFCU, or other financial concern, unless you initiated the contact and are receiving a return call or email. RBFCU never distributes emails or other messages, nor will a representative place phone calls to members asking for sign-in information, including passwords and one-time passcodes.
If you receive a suspicious phone call, email or text message, hang up, do not respond to the message, do not click on any links, and do not open any attachments — just delete the message. If you feel your account, username or password has been compromised, please contact RBFCU at 1-800-580-3300. You can also report scams to the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357), 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338), or online at www.ftc.gov.
Helpful perspectives and guidance
RBFCU’s goal is to be more than just your financial institution. If you need financial guidance during these volatile times, our resource articles can help you make informed decisions.
Keep your kids learning with ‘It’s a Money Thing’
With schools and businesses in our communities closed, many RBFCU members are teaching their children at home while balancing other duties, including working from home.
For older children and teens, RBFCU is proud to offer “It’s a Money Thing,” an awesome series of financial education articles designed to help kids learn about money. Each article includes a video and downloadable worksheet to help reinforce the lesson.
RBFCU remains a trusted financial partner
Many people are justifiably concerned about the financial system as the COVID-19 response has slowed economic activity. We want to reassure our members that RBFCU is a financially strong institution.
