Health Education

GCS Credit Union is carefully monitoring the developing information related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our management team actively communicates regarding the most current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local authorities to make business adjustments as needed.

GCS will continue to update this webpage with information.


GCS Credit Union, along with other local credit unions, has been carefully monitoring information related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). It is important to us to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone while providing the financial services that you need.   

For the continued safety of our members and team,  we will temporarily be suspending lobby access at our Pontoon Beach and Lee Avenue branch locations. These changes will go into effect Wednesday, July 29, 2020. Drive-thru service will still be available during normal business hours at all GCS branches.

To optimize your experience, we strongly encourage scheduling an appointment to visit a Member Service Representative, or for using the coin machine, by calling 618-797-7993. We will continue to offer our expanded services in the drive-thru.

Select lobbies are now open for normal business hours. For the safety of our members and team, lobbies will have restrictions that could result in longer-than-normal wait times.

To help protect our members and team, we have instituted several precautions. Here’s what you can expect when visiting a branch:

  • Floor markers placed six feet apart
  • Limiting the number of members in the lobby at once
  • Asking for ID with all transactions
  • GCS staff members wearing masks
  • Glass coverings at teller lines and in offices

Thank you and see you soon!

Online Services

To help control the spread, we recommend that you take advantage of our available online tools for self-service banking and 24 hour account access through our mobile, online, text and phone banking services. Through these channels, you can check balances, transfer funds, deposit checks, or find the nearest ATM.

GCS Employee Wellbeing

GCS has asked all employees to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace. These steps include staying home when sick, washing hands often, wearing a mask, and cleaning frequently touched surfaces.

GCS Member Wellbeing

GCS will provide hand sanitizing stations in the lobby of each branch location. Please stay safe, wash hands frequently, and stay home if you are not feeling well.

While it is impossible for anyone to predict the spread of the virus and its impact, GCS will remain dedicated to our commitment of providing financial services to our members.
