Haven’t been on your HCE FCU OnLine Account for awhile and now it won’t let you in?
The system is set up via our programmers to shut down the access to OnLine if you haven’t gone into it for 30 days or more. This is to protect your account. If this has happened to you just give us a call and we can re-enable your account. To avoid the problem altogether just log into your account on a regular basis, check your balances and make sure everything on your account is correct. Please contact our office if you need more information.

BIZ KID$ Program
In celebration of our 65th Anniversary we were looking for a way to give back to our membership community. We submitted a grant to the National Credit Union Foundation to purchase Biz Kid$ kits for each of the 21 middle schools in HCPSS. We won the grant and will be presenting the kits to the middle school FACs teachers at a Presentation Event in December. Go on line to Biz Kid$ to see the fun financial education programs that our middle school students will get a chance to enjoy.
Join us as we welcome Chad Tidgewell to the Board of Directors, Keith Richardson to the Supervisory Committee and Dumebi Adigwe as Student Representative to the Board of Directors.
