A Letter from our President and CEO, Mark Hietpas!
We officially opened our lobbies last week– with the exception of Saturdays. We are currently offering drive-thru hours ONLY on Saturday’s to avoid moving our staff around and to lessen the potential spread of covid within our branches. Although we have come a long way since the initial closing of our lobbies in March of 2020, we still need to be cautious. We are committed to providing exceptional member service, while continuing to keep the safety of our staff, members, and our communities top of mind. We have installed plexiglass on all the teller lines and in all Member Advisor offices. We have floor stickers installed in all lobbies to practice social distancing and masks are required. We are asking that members continue to utilize our online services, ATM’s, night deposits and our drive-thru services as much as possible.
Mortgage rates continue to be at historical lows! If you are thinking of refinancing, now is the time. We offer an easy checklist and our Member Advisors can make the process quick, easy and painless! What if we could save you money on a monthly basis….AND cut some years off your loan!

Last month, over 182 members participated in our poll asking if you believed Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of 6 more weeks of winter. We had 103 members respond that you didn’t believe him and are dreaming of spring and warmer temps. Congratulations to Gary V. for being the lucky winner of a $100 Visa Gift Card.
THANK YOU for your continued membership and trust in Unison!
