coronavirus precautions

Before coming to our branch, please ask yourself:

  • Can I do this transaction online or from my phone?
  • Do I have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath?
  • Do I have chronic lung disease, asthma, or heart complications?
  • Am I immunocompromised including receiving cancer treatment?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please conduct business with CTCU via phone at (903) 561-2603, online at coopteachers.com, or through our "CTCU OnTheGo" mobile app.

We are an essential business, and you will always be able to trust us to be here for our members. Currently our lobby is still open during regular hours, but we want all our members to be aware of the safest options including mobile, online, ATM's, phone, and drive-thru. Make sure you are enrolled in online banking in case we do need to close our lobby for the safety of our members and employees.

Economic Impact Payment Information

Recently, the US Federal Government began sending “Economic Impact Payments” to eligible Americans. These payments will be sent over the course of multiple weeks into July 2020. We understand that many of our members will be receiving these payments and you may have questions.

  • If you have questions about your eligibility or calculating your payment, the IRS has created a page for detailed web page for information and frequently asked questions: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment-frequently-asked-questions
  • If you would like to check on the status of your payment, you can do so through the status application on the IRS website: https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/get-my-payment
  • For most recipients, your payment will be made directly into the same bank account used for your most recent tax refund or social security payment
  • Other individuals will receive payments in the form of paper checks mailed to the address that the IRS has on file
  • If you split your tax return direct deposit between several accounts, the full payment will be deposited into the first bank account you listed on Form 888
  • Don’t forget, if you get a payment in the form of a paper check, you can deposit the check by using our CTCUOnTheGo app from the App Store or Google Play
  • If you’ve received your refund and would like to move the funds to a higher yield CD, you can do so by opening an account and transferring the funds. You can check our most current rates here and open a new Certificate account online.
