Fayetteville Branch Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Delta Community recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Fayetteville branch, marking the occasion with employees, Fayette County business partners and elected officials.

"This milestone is a testament to our Fayetteville team's dedication to our members and the neighborhoods we serve," said CEO Hank Halter. "The Fayetteville branch is one of our largest and most successful locations, and we look forward to an exciting future of continued growth and service in Fayette County."

The Fayetteville branch was Delta Community's first free-standing location, built after the Credit Union expanded into community membership in 2005. Today, more than 19,000 people consider the Fayetteville branch their "home" bank, and nearly 30,000 Fayette County residents are members of Delta Community.

Quick Balance Feature Added to Mobile Banking
Our Mobile Banking service now features Quick Balance, which allows members to easily check their account balances and up to five recent transactions at any time - without having to login to their accounts.

Once enabled, Quick Balance is available with a simple "swipe" from the middle of the Mobile Banking login screen.
Like Touch ID, Quick Balance is an optional feature that must be activated within the app's Settings command, which is located under More in the app's footer menu bar.

Visit DeltaCommunityCU.com/NewFeatures to learn more about Quick Balance. Members can also download the latest version of our Mobile Banking app, which may be required for Quick Balance, from their devices' App Store.
 
What Should You do With Your 2016 Tax Refund?  
It’s the time of year when many of us are awaiting a tax refund check from the IRS. It is money that we earned in 2015, allowing Uncle Sam to hang on to some of it in the form of withholding taxes – a little at a time deducted from each paycheck throughout the year.

Read our blog for suggestions as to how best to use your tax refund.
