Horizon Branch Lobbies to Reopen June 8

Horizon branch lobbies will reopen next Monday, June 8. To ensure a safe environment for our members and employees, the following steps will be in place for our reopening:

  • Counters and desks will be continuously wiped down with disinfectant wipes.
  • Face masks or appropriate mouth and nose covering will be encouraged for all members and mandatory for employees while in the branch.
  • Branch occupancy will be limited, and appropriate signage and floor clings will be on display to ensure we can continue to practice social distancing.

While we are managing the number of members in the branch lobby, we continue to recommend members conduct their transactions electronically, when possible. We will continue to evaluate branch lobby activity and policies and follow the lead of government and health experts.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue to navigate during this unprecedented time.

Your financial well-being is our top priority:

  • The funds in your Horizon accounts are federally insured by NCUA up to $250,000 per depositor, per account type. To calculate coverage for your funds, use NCUA’s Share Insurance Estimator.
  • Storing cash at home comes with risks including a loss to fire, theft, or water damage, which would not be insured by homeowners or renter’s insurance.
  • Keeping large amounts of cash could prevent you from paying essential bills from home like your mortgage, car payment, or electricity bill.
  • Debit and credit card purchases continue to be the preferred way to make purchases, reducing the necessity to carry cash. Card purchases are a more sanitary way to interact with retail businesses.
