COVID-19 Preparedness & Precautions

A source for our members to learn new developments as we implement measures and institute safeguards in response to coronavirus

Committed to Supporting our Members and Communities

Over the past year, Liberty Bay Credit Union has been monitoring official Public Health Guidance and taking actions to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, the health, safety, and well-being of our members, employees, and community remain our top priority.  We continue to monitor developments around COVID-19 and will provide the below updates as necessary.

Mask Mandate Update

In accordance with updated guidance from Massachusetts and the CDC, as of May 29, 2021, fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks inside a Liberty Bay Credit Union branch location, though they may if they desire. Unvaccinated people should continue to wear a mask when visiting a branch location.

We continue to encourage members to use our remote banking options for their banking needs.

Helpful Resources

Members experiencing financial hardship

We're here to help. Liberty Bay's Loan Hardship Assistance Program is offering our members who are experiencing hardship a variety of solutions to help you and your family stay on track with your finances.

Your deposits are safe at Liberty Bay

Liberty Bay Credit Union provides both NCUA and MSIC insurance, so your deposits with us are safe, secure, and 100% insured - regardless of what's happening in the markets.

Have you applied or plan on applying for a home loan?

Given recent market volatility, Liberty Bay's Mortgage Department has been working diligently to process a higher volume of applications. We are asking all who have applied, or plan to apply for a home loan through Liberty Bay to please be patient as we continue to review and service each application.

Beware of COVID-19 scams and fraud

While everyone is focusing on social distancing and the spread of the coronavirus, scammers are taking advantage of the situation to steal personal and financial information. Remember, Liberty Bay Credit Union will never contact you by phone, email, or text to ask you to update your account information or to provide your account number, Personal Identification Number (PIN), Debit or Credit Card Number, password, or Social Security Number.

If you see something that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Be diligent. Fraudsters rely on a sense of urgency for you to make a quick decision that you will regret. Pause, take a breath, and think before you click on an email or text or provide information over the phone. Always verify independently with your financial institution by calling them on the number that you know.
