PROTECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.

We strongly encourage our members to avoid visiting a branch if you’re feeling ill, have been exposed to COVID-19 and/or experience any coronavirus symptoms. If you do visit a branch, please practice social distancing, wash your hands and take the necessary precautions. Thank you for your understanding as we help protect our members, community and team during this time of uncertainty and concern.

SPECIAL CLEANING PROCEDURES.

As always, our branch teams are available and happy to help you with your banking needs. With virus prevention in mind, we have augmented our daily cleaning procedures by using stronger antibacterial/anti-microbial disinfectants on high-touch surfaces. We are also educating our team members on best practices recommended by the CDC, and hand sanitizer is available for use in each branch.

BEWARE OF COVID-19 SCAMS AND FRAUD.

Thieves and scammers may be taking advantage of the coronavirus outbreak to prey on credit union members. Remember, we will never ask our members to disclose personal account information through email, text and/or phone! If you receive a suspicious communication claiming to be from Desert Financial, do not respond. Contact us directly at (602) 433-7000 or use one of our other fraud reporting options. For more information on scam and fraud awareness and tips to protect yourself, visit DesertFinancial.com/Security.


  • To help minimize contact, Desert Financial team members who are able to perform their job remotely have been set up for success at home.
  • We are providing supplies and support for our employees to help keep their spirits up during the outbreak.
  • Desert Financial and our subsidiaries are offering a variety of leave options for employees who are ill or need time off to care for their family.

WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY:

  • We are amazed at the way local nonprofits have rallied to help people in need! To help these organizations distribute essential resources during this crisis, we are donating $550,000 in emergency funds to six Valley nonprofits supporting critical community needs amidst the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • $150,000 each to United Food Bank and St. Mary’s Food Bank
    • $50,000 each to Midwest and Desert Mission Food Banks
    • $100,000 to Valley of the Sun United Way
    • $50,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
  • We are continuing to work with nonprofit partners and the community to identify and address the emergency needs of local families.
  • The Desert Financial Foundation is currently developing programming to help members and individuals facing financial difficulty, including webinars on crisis budgeting, resources for employers and more.
  • Our Random Acts of Kindness and Teacher Appreciation programs are still important to us and continuing with new restrictions following social distancing guidelines.

Desert Financial will continue to monitor CDC updates on the virus, and we will evaluate any additional measures that might be needed to support you.

For additional information about COVID-19, we encourage you to read the latest Center for Disease Control reports at cdc.gov.

Details on Arizona’s response can be found on the Arizona Department of Health Services website at azdhs.gov.
