We are monitoring the latest news regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and will be using this web page to provide you information about what measures we are taking to keep our Members and employees safe.
Updates on Mask Requirements
Updated March 5, 2021
As you’re likely aware, Governor Abbott announced earlier this week the removal of all State of Texas imposed COVID-19 mitigation restrictions effective Wednesday, March 10. This announcement includes the lifting of the state-wide mask mandate. EECU will continue to monitor and comply with the guidance of government authorities and we will adjust our operations as needed.
We’d like to update you on how this affects your experience at EECU, and reiterate our commitment to providing the safest and most comfortable environment when you visit our Financial Centers.
With this change, effective Wednesday, March 10, the use of masks is highly encouraged but optional when visiting an EECU Financial Center. For your convenience, we will continue to have masks available at the entries of each Financial Center.
Rest assured, we will continue to ensure EECU Financial Centers are safe places for you, your family and our employees.
Our EECU employees will continue to wear masks at all times. We will continue increased frequency of daily cleaning for high-touch surfaces. Hand sanitizer will be readily available, and we will continue use of plexiglass at member service and teller stations.
Thank you for your understanding, and for choosing EECU as your trusted financial partner.

All Branch Lobbies Are Open
To keep our Members, employees, and community safe, we are joining other businesses and are making temporary changes to our operations based on local and federal health official guidance.
All Branch lobbies are open, without an appointment, for a limited number of visitors.
We encourage Members to schedule an appointment
before visiting any Financial Center.
All Branches will continue to offer expanded drive-thru capabilities that allow for almost every transaction, including debit card replacement.
New Government Stimulus Payments
Recently new legislation was approved that includes an additional round of government stimulus payments, also known as Economic Impact Payments, for qualifying individuals. The IRS will begin sending these payments by mailed paper checks and direct deposit, starting December 30, 2021.
As we receive the government stimulus payments, the funds will appear as pending in Online Banking & the EECU Mobile App.
Due to higher than normal call volume, we encourage you to use Online Banking
or the EECU Mobile App
to check if you have received your stimulus payment.
You can learn more about these payments, your eligibility, and the IRS status of your payment at: IRS.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments
