COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates from Langley


Branch Re-Opening Update

5/08/20 12:00pm

We are excited to announce that all Langley branch lobbies will reopen on Monday May 18, 2020. However, it won’t be business as normal. You’ll notice a few changes in place to protect our staff, members and visitors.

We will be limiting the number of people allowed in a branch at any given time and this will vary by location based on branch size. As Members and guests enter the branch you will be asked to maintain social distancing by following the markers on the floor. Plexiglass barriers have been installed on the teller line and in offices to help provide protection. The Langley team will be wearing facemasks and they would love it if you would too. We recognize that wearing a mask may seem like an inconvenience, but while you may only spend a few minutes in our branch, our employees will interact with hundreds of members throughout day.

Our team would encourage you to continue to utilize our online & mobile banking and our Appointment Concierge to schedule a phone appointment as we can serve nearly every need you have by telephone. However, should you need to visit a branch, we will check you in at the front door and ask you to wait in your vehicle to be called. As with all of you, we look forward to a day when things return to normal.

We appreciate all of your cooperation and continued support as we adapt to this challenging environment. Thank you for being a member of Langley.

Access to Your Stimulus Checks

4/16/20 11:00am

We are here to help you access your stimulus funds. When the Economic Impact Payment is deposited into your checking account, you can access it using your debit card or through online or mobile banking.

If your stimulus funds have been affected by a negative balance in your checking account, our employees are prepared to work with you to access your funds.

The IRS Get My Payment page allows you to check the status of your payment and update any information the IRS needs from you. To check the status of your Economic Impact Payment, click here.

Information about Stimulus Checks

4/13/20 1:00pm

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has begun issuing Economic Impact Payments (stimulus checks). They are coming in the form of direct deposit for those people who filed electronically in 2018 or 2019 and provided a bank account for direct deposit. We expect that these payments will continue to arrive every Friday until the IRS has completed the distribution.

Langley is processing these payments within minutes of receiving them through an automated process. There is no need to call as we do not have any additional information on when your payment will arrive, how much it will be, and into what bank account it will be deposited. Please use our online and mobile banking for real-time access to check whether the IRS has sent your payment.

For more information, we refer you to the IRS web site specially designed to answer your questions. Please remember, It is important to guard your personal information closely, as criminals will use events like this to take advantage of people.

The CARES Act will give most adults a $1200 stimulus check and $500 for each child. If you don’t have an immediate need for this money (overdue bills or loan payments), then this represents a great way to start your emergency savings fund.

Member Update

4/2/20 4:00pm

With the ongoing threat and risk of COVID-19, we are continually evaluating our business practices. Utmost consideration is being given to the health and safety of our employees and members.

Service at a Branch

You will experience long wait times if you visit one of our branches with drive-thru service. We would encourage you to use the night depository, ATM service, and Online Banking service as an alternative.

Effective today, we are suspending notary services at the branches. Access to Safe Deposit boxes will be restricted to emergency access only, for instance to conduct a Will search. We will resume this and all other branch lobby services once the COVID-19 situation has stabilized.

Service at the Contact Center

We have increased our capacity to serve you over the phone. Although we are handling a greater number of calls, we are ready to serve you quickly and effectively.

You may call our contact center on Monday to Friday from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm. Saturdays our contact center is open from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.

If you would prefer to schedule a phone call, click here to select your time. You may choose your preferred branch, but feel free to select an available time at another branch if it suits your schedule.

Online Banking Services

Online and mobile banking remain the fastest and easiest way to do business at Langley. It is available 24/7, extremely secure and easy to use. The mobile app allows you to check balances, transfer funds, deposit checks, pay bills and more.

Member Relief Programs

NEW - Home Equity Lines of Credit: Langley is advancing due dates for Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit except for those products outlined below. For eligible loans, your monthly payments due in April will now be due in May. There are no fees associated with this skip-a-payment option; however, interest will continue to accrue. If your income has not changed, we recommend that you continue to make your monthly payments.

This process has been automated and does not require the assistance of a Langley staff member.

EXCEPTION - If you are in the initial 2-year draw period of your 7-year, 12-year or 17-year fixed rate HELOC and making interest-only payments, you will not be eligible for the skip payment. Unfortunately, the interest-only nature of these payments would create a significantly larger payment when the payments resume and would not provide the relief intended. Please contact us at 757-827-5328 if you would like to discuss alternative payment options for these products.
