We’re committed to doing everything we can to help you during this time.

We’re here for you.

At Clearview, we’ve always been committed to helping you enjoy a better life. That mission doesn’t stop now. The health and wellbeing of our members and employees is still top priority.

Given the current increase in positive cases across our region, and in the interest of public health and safety, our financial centers will be available by appointment only beginning Tuesday, December 1, 2020. In order to efficiently serve your banking needs and make sure everyone feels safe when visiting one of our financial centers, we're asking anyone who plans on stopping by to please schedule an appointment first.

We recommend in-person appointments for the following transactions:
  • Withdrawals with large denomination bills (50, 100, etc.) or coin
  • Deposits that includes coin
  • Medallion Stamp (signature guarantee) service
  • Gift cards
  • Cash advances from credit cards
  • Official checks
  • Money orders 
Here's an overview of what you can expect at a financial center if you need to do your banking in person:
  • Masks are still required for both in-person transactions, appointments, and Takeout Banking.
  • Our staff will monitor how many members can safely be inside each financial center at the same time and ensure that appropriate distance is maintained. If a financial center is at capacity, you may have to wait in line outside before you're allowed in.
  • Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. will be reserved for members over age 60 or those who are immunocompromised.
We've upgraded our Clearview Live® technology to make it even easier and convenient to bank with us without leaving the safety of your home. Now you can video chat with a friendly Clearview face and get your banking done from wherever you may be — all from your phone or computer!

Schedule an appointment

If you're running late or cannot make your original appointment time, please call to reschedule. We're working hard to ensure that each appointment does not overlap in order to maintain physical distancing.

Please refer to your specific financial center’s location page for its hours.

 
All you have to do is call and schedule an appointment, and we’ll ask about your transaction and do all we can ahead of time.
 
Once your appointment time comes, simply come to the door with your ID, sign for the transaction, and you’re off! Can’t come in? Let us know when you call – we're happy to bring what you need out to your car.

Please note: anyone participating in Clearview's takeout banking must be wearing a mask. Our employees will do the same! 
 
Takeout Banking

  • Make loan payments
  • Pay bills

Unfortunately, some people choose to try and exploit others during difficult times. We want to remind you that we’ll never ask you for password, PIN, or other account information when reaching out to you. We recommend you read the Federal Trade Commission’s helpful tips on how to keep scammers at bay.

Fraudsters are leveraging fears over the coronavirus as an opportunity to for new scams. We’re taking steps to warn and protect our members.
  • Individuals and businesses selling fake cures for COVID-19 online and engaging in other forms of fraud.  This includes going door-to-door around the Pittsburgh area.
  • Phishing emails from entities posing as the World Health Organization or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Malicious websites and apps that appear to share virus-related information to gain and lock access to your devices until payment is received.
  • Seeking donations fraudulently for illegitimate or non-existent charitable organizations.
  • The IRS urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social media  asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.
  • Scammers know that finding a job can be tough. To trick people looking for honest work, scammers advertise where real employers and job placement firms do. They also make upbeat promises about your chances of employment, and virtually all of them ask you to pay them for their services before you get a job. But the promise of a job isn’t the same thing as a job. If you have to pay for the promise, it’s likely a scam.
Criminals will likely continue to use new methods to exploit COVID-19 worldwide that could include payment relief, job opportunities, and payday loans to name a few. Also, the federal government will never ask for personal information such as a bank account or social security number.

If you think you are a victim of a scam or attempted fraud involving COVID-19, individuals can report it through a number of platforms:

We’re participating in the Paycheck Protection Program to help our business members during this challenging time.

Paycheck Protection Program

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) was enacted on December 27, 2020. The new law, the federal government’s follow-up to the CARES Act, provides for renewed stimulus payments to individuals and businesses and includes significant provisions relating to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The CRRSA allocates approximately $285 billion for a new round of PPP loans. First-time borrowers and prior PPP borrowers are both eligible for this funding, regardless of whether any previous PPP loans have been re-paid or forgiven.

The loans are available to businesses with 300 or fewer employees, and the maximum loan amount is now $2 million.

Previous Paycheck Protection Program Loan Participants With Clearview

If you received a previous PPP loan from Clearview and need another PPP loan for $150,000 or less, please complete this form.

If you received a previous PPP loan from Clearview and need another PPP loan for more than $150,000, you will need to provide a financial statement that indicates that your 2020 earnings were at least 25% less than your 2019 earnings. Once you have this financial statement, please complete this form.

If you have other questions about the Paycheck Protection Program, please complete this form to contact our Business Lending Department 

Clearview will only accept PPP loan applications from existing business members. Membership must have been established by December 31, 2020. Applications must be received by March 31, 2021.

Additional information on Coronavirus Relief Options can be found on the SBA website.

Please keep in mind that the program guidelines were authorized by the Treasury Department and the Small Business Administration. Clearview Federal Credit Union did not establish the eligibility rules, lending guidelines, forgiveness guidelines, or loan terms.

For additional information about COVID-19, get the latest report from the Centers for Disease Control at cdc.gov or your local health department website. We’re also regularly updating our blog with helpful financial information related to COVID-19.

I used the Clearview Live machine at the Moon location the other day, keeping my social distance and it was great. I was in my warm car and well away from the teller. Robert, Member since 2013
