Branches Are Open

We've Missed You. Welcome Back.

It's with great pleasure to announce Liberty Bay Credit Union branches have reopened. As we are still in a time of unknown, we will take every health measure, protocol, and necessary precaution to keep our members and employees safe. Some of these include sanitation procedures, hygiene practices, and traffic management. We hope to provide a quick and efficient in-branch experience, however, the key to a successful experience for all will be patience and mutual respect as we adapt to the ongoing changes.

The best course of action is to limit your public interactions until this threat subsides. Liberty Bay has several remote banking options that we recommend using as much as possible:

  • Online and mobile banking are available 24/7 and allow you to view your accounts, transfer money, deposit checks, and pay bills. If you haven’t enrolled in Online and Mobile Banking, now would be a perfect time.

  • Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) are located at our Braintree, Hingham and Woburn Branches. Braintree and Hingham branches have drive-up ITMs for your convenience.
  • Drive-up teller windows are available at our Hingham and Scituate branches.
  • Our Debit/ATM cards can be used to access cash, make deposits or check your balance at an ATM. Liberty Bay belongs to a network of over 100,000 surcharge-free ATMs. Find your nearest ATM here
  • Our Member Service Center is here to assist you during regular business hours by calling (617) 439-6500. You may also contact them via secure chat or email through Online Banking.

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.
