COVID-19 Update

The credit union is lobby is now open with no restrictions. However, if you are sick, or feeling sick, please do not enter the building. Please call us from your car for assistance. Members can still wear masks if they feel more comfortable. We have sanitizer available and will be cleaning member areas often. Members can still request to do their transactions through the window if you prefer. Hopefully there will be no changes and we will all have safe fall and winter months ahead.

Winter Weather

Luckily, our winters have been relatively calm lately. In those rare instances when the weather calls for heavy snow and treacherous travel, please call ahead to make sure we are open. The safety of our membership and employees is our top priority when weather turns bad.

Unclaimed Property

If there is no activity (deposits or withdrawals) on your share account for three (3) years, the credit union, by law, is required to turn these funds over to the Department of Financial Institutions. Dividend postings and renewing regular or IRA CD’s is not considered activity. If you receive a letter stating that your account is inactive or if you believe it to be, please contact the credit union immediately.

Call Ahead if Visiting

With some COVID restrictions still in place, when coming to the credit union, please call ahead so we can take care of your transactions ahead of time. This will also allow us to explain our current procedures as they may change based on CDC and Illinois Department of Health information.

Statement Fee - Please Read!!!    

Back on January 1, 2015, the Synergy Partners Credit Union began charging a $2.00 statement fee. Four years later, we are still receiving calls and questions regarding what this fee is. This fee will only be charged when a statement is required, by law, to be issued. We do apologize for this fee, but the rising costs for postage, envelopes and paper, along with regulatory requirements, have almost tripled our statement costs. You can avoid this fee by registering your account online and selecting the e-statement option. To sign up, please visit the following: www.shareteccu.com/synergypartners or visit our website, synergypartnerscu.org and click on the online banking link. Once you sign up for online access and enroll in E-statements, your statement will be sent directly to your online account for you to view and/or print. You will receive an email notification when your statement is ready. Also, if you decide E-statements are not for you, you can opt-out at any time to resume receiving paper statements. However, you will then be charged the $2.00 fee.
