At Redstone Federal Credit Union, the safety and well-being of our members and employees remain our highest priority as we continue to monitor the coronavirus health threat. This page will be updated as new information is available. We understand many members are taking precautions and limiting face-to-face activities outside the home. Be confident knowing you can continue to conduct your daily finances without visiting a branch.

We are happy to announce that all Redstone Federal Credit Union branch office lobbies will open and serve members in a limited capacity beginning Monday, April 27th.

The health and well-being of our members and employees remains a top priority as we continue to practice appropriate social distancing measures. Staff will be wearing face masks and we encourage you to do the same.*
