To All of Our Greater Metro Members,
Update March 24, 2020
We hope everyone remains Healthy and Safe during these unprecedented and trying times.
Greater Metro remains open EVERY DAY to serve our members. We have, however, curtailed some of our face to face services. The VA Branch will operate M- W- F from 9AM to 1PM with regular hours on Payday Fridays. Please remember that we have a Surcharge Free ATM in the VA lobby. Although we are running with regular hours (8:30AM-4PM) in Long Island City, our Cash Teller Service Window will close at 2PM. Please call ahead for cash withdrawals greater than $1,000.

The nation is under siege as everyone tries to navigate through unchartered waters. We at the Credit Union hope that you and all those close to you are healthy and safe.
So far, it is business as usual here at Greater Metro. We have plans in place, should the need arise, for all staff to work remotely and continue to serve our membership. The Teller Window in Long Island City remains open as does our Branch at the VA Hospital.
Our Shared Branch Network is still available to members, but that service may be curtailed based on the respective actions of the credit unions offering this accommodation. Drive-thru’s should be operational.
The recent FED interest rate cuts will impact Variable Rate loan products as of April 1.
12 month at 1.75% or 60 month at 2.45%
Due to market conditions, we needed to reduce our CD rates which are still among the highest available.
