Living our philosophy of “Doing Good”
Blue partnered with the Blue Foundation to pledge $200k in matching funds to 9 local nonprofit organizations. The match was fully funded! Combined with the funds raised from the nonprofits, the total raised was over $500,000. Although the Double Your Impact donation period has ended, please keep donating.
See the Video here.
Several of Blue's staff members volunteered and filled over 700 care packages that were delivered to local health care professionals and first responders in Wyoming and Colorado. We can’t thank these wonderful individuals enough for all the hard work they are doing. We are so proud of our communities for sticking together during these challenging times.

Helping you is what we do
Blue is here to help you with your financial needs in both good and challenging times. If you have been affected by COVID-19 and need assistance with access to your funds or making payments give us a call at 800-368-9328 for assistance. Each situation is unique, so we’ll work directly with you to develop a plan. We have deferment programs in place for most Blue loans which include 2nd mortgage loans, HELOC’s, credit cards, auto loans, and personal loans. During this deferment period, there will be no late fees. We will make it easy to make your loan payment by visiting our online payment center.
Accessing your savings got easier
In light of ongoing health and economic conditions, the Federal Reserve has temporarily lifted the rule that limits automated transfers from savings accounts. Normally, Federal Regulation D restricts the number of automatic transfers to six per month if the funds originate from a savings share or money market account. But with this temporary suspension, members will have easier access to their savings via phone, online, and overdraft transactions. The Federal Reserve has not indicated how long the suspension will last. We will keep you informed of any changes.
Taking care of our employees
We're providing opportunities for employees to work from home and are taking extra precautions to ensure our workspaces are as clean and safe as possible for those reporting to branches. Blue ensures our staff has access to updated employee policies, resources, and regulations related to COVID-19. Our leadership team is making an extra effort to stay in contact with our deployed and branch teams to ensure everyone is doing well during these trying times. We incorporate fun, motivating, and interactive social distancing activities for all staff to participate on a regular basis.
