COVID-19 Updates

Meeting your needs while addressing the health concerns of our members, our staff and our community.


Updated November 29, 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges to all of us, especially given the recent increase in cases in our local communities. Cinfed is working diligently to ensure the safety and health of our members and staff.

With everyone’s health a priority, Cinfed employees are required to wear masks or other facial coverings, maintain six feet of social distance whenever possible, wash or sanitize their hands regularly, and self-assess their health before reporting to work each day. No employee is permitted to come to work if they have known symptoms of COVID-19. There are additional cleaning protocols in place to ensure high-touch areas are sanitized multiple times each day.

If we learn that one of our branches has had possible exposure to COVID-19, we may temporarily close the location out of precaution, and reopen once it has been determined safe to do so.

We continue to ask you to comply with all current safety guidelines and regulations as mandated by the state of Ohio and Commonwealth of Kentucky, including the wearing of masks or facial coverings when visiting our lobbies.

You can use our drive thrus, ATMs/ITMs, online banking or mobile app, and mobile deposit to complete your transactions from the safety of your home or car. Most lending needs can be completed online or by phone.

If you have questions, call Cinfed’s Member Services department at 513-333-3800 or click here to learn more about our online banking services.

Due to the continued elevation of COVID 19 cases in our region, beginning on Monday, November 2, our branch lobbies will be open by appointment only. Our drive-thrus remain open, and our ATMs and ITMs remain active and available. Of course, you can complete transactions any time using our digital services such as Online Banking and the Cinfed Mobile App.

To schedule an appointment, click here. You will choose a convenient branch, then submit an online form that includes:

  • your contact information
  • the reason for your visit
  • the dates and times available

You will then receive an email message that confirms your appointment details. You will also have the option of receiving notification via text.

COVID precautions must be followed with any visit to a branch, including wearing a mask, checking your temperature beforehand, and being symptom-free.

Under the current conditions, we recommend optimizing the use of our digital tools. As a Cinfed member, you have numerous secure options for accessing your account and conducting transactions.

Cinfed is a federally insured institution. "Federally insured" means that the safety of deposits is assured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and affirms that the participating credit union is a safe place for members to put their money.


All deposits at federally insured credit unions are protected by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, with deposits insured up to $250,000 per individual depositor. Credit union members have never lost a penny of insured savings at a federally insured credit union.


Cinfed members exceeding the maximum level of coverage provided by NCUA are insured up to an additional $250,000 by the Excess Share Insurance Corporation (ESI). Cinfed added this benefit to help ensure complete coverage for our members and provide them with peace of mind, knowing their deposits are insured and safe.

Cinfed was founded with the goal of helping our members protect and grow their personal finances. You can use Cinfed's resources with confidence knowing that data security is a top priority for Cinfed. Remember that we will never contact you for your social security number, account number or password by phone, email or text.

As the economic impact payments (stimulus checks) have been delivered over the past few weeks, questions have arisen. One of the most common questions is: if the recipient is deceased, does the payment need to be returned? The answer is “yes,” and the return should be completed as soon as possible.

If the payment was a paper check:

  1. Write "Void" in the endorsement section on the back of the check.
  2. Mail the voided Treasury check immediately to the appropriate IRS location listed below.
  3. Don't staple, bend, or paper clip the check.
  4. Include a note stating the reason for returning the check.

If the payment was a paper check and you have cashed it, or if the payment was a direct deposit:

  1. Submit a personal check, money order, etc., immediately to the appropriate IRS location listed below.
  2. Write on the check/money order made payable to “U.S. Treasury” and write 2020EIP, and the taxpayer identification number (social security number, or individual taxpayer identification number) of the recipient of the check.
  3. Include a brief explanation of the reason for returning the EIP.

For your paper check, here are the IRS mailing addresses to use based on the state:

  • For Indiana and Ohio residents:

Kansas City Refund Inquiry Unit
333 W. Pershing Rd.
Mail Stop 6800, N-2
Kansas City, MO 64108

  • For Kentucky residents:

Atlanta Refund Inquiry Unit
4800 Buford Hwy
Mail Stop 112
Chamblee, GA 30341
