During this difficult time, rest assured that your credit union is open to serve you and your financial needs. We have made every effort to follow the government pandemic guidelines by closing our branch lobbies in Totowa and Elmwood Park for walk-in traffic. However, the drive-ups are open during regular business hours at these branches. Our walk-in branch in Newark has protective glass to protect you and our staff for you to take care of all of your financial needs.
North Jersey Federal Credit Union was built on the philosophy of people helping people. We will continue to be here to help you as this situation unfolds. If you experience any hardship or difficulty as a result of COVID-19, rely on us to help you navigate through the challenge. If your finances are affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus, or you suspect that they will be, you have options – please call us to discuss ways we can help lessen the impact on your financial well-being.
We remain secure. Your funds on deposit with North Jersey FCU are insured $250,000 by the NCUA and additional $250,000 by ESI Insurance, totaling $500,000.

We take that responsibility very seriously, so we will continue to make decisions during this unprecedented time in our history based on your needs and the needs of the organization.
I want to reiterate to you again that North Jersey FCU is here to make sure you have complete access to your accounts anytime.
