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.
