As a cooperative, we have a responsibility to do what is in the best interest of all our members.  By closing our lobbies, SEC is limiting the direct exposure of our employees and members.  Even though our doors will be locked we will continue to do business as normal. Our service and field personnel will also be employing “social distancing”. 
Members are still able to conduct necessary business through our SmartHub app, website, phone, mail, and night deposit box.  When dropping payments into the deposit box, please include your name, account number, and phone number.  Cash payments will be accepted in the deposit box, however, NO change will be made available. 
If you are experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic, please contact our office to make payment arrangements.  Every effort will be made to assist our members during this time.
SEC is dedicated to finding the best solutions for our membership and our communities. We will continue to post updates on social media and our website
