Wings Response to COVID-19

For the past several weeks Wings has been closely monitoring the information surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic around the world. Our top priority is the safety and health of our members and employees, and we wanted to let you know some of the things we’re doing to protect our branches and headquarters.

Wings Continues to Serve Members

Today, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz mandated that all non-essential services lock down and for residents of Minnesota to shelter in place for a period of two weeks as we try to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. Credit Unions like Wings and the entire financial services industry are exempt from this lockdown considering the vital role these services play in our economy.

Wings is ensuring our members have complete access to their accounts with the superior service you have come to expect while helping keep both our members and employees healthy. Current updates with details on branch locations are below.

What Can Members Do?

We always welcome members to visit our branches, but if you are concerned, we have many options for conducting most of your banking needs. As you plan your visit, we ask that you assess your personal health condition.

To protect other members, our employees and the public in general, if you have concerns about your health or are ill, we ask that you stay home and look at other options that you have to manage your accounts with Wings. In most cases, it’s faster and easier to manage your accounts with our online and mobile banking options.

Is my money still safe?

What is NCUA?

Created by the U.S. Congress in 1970, the National Credit Union Administration is an independent federal agency that insures deposits at federally insured credit unions, protects the members who own credit unions, and charters and regulates federal credit unions.

How is it different than FDIC?

The FDIC is the federal regulatory body overseeing banks while NCUA oversees credit unions. Both insure the deposits of individuals up to $250,000.

Answers to Common Questions

Why is Wings changing branch operations?

The spread of the COVID-19 virus has caused concern all over the world. Federal and State government officials have said one of the best ways to prevent the spread of this virus is to limit face-to-face contact with others and to practice “social distancing”. To protect the safety of both our members and our employees, we made the decision to close our branch lobbies and provide service exclusively through our Drive-Up lanes for the time being.

What is changing with Wings branch operations in light of COVID-19?

Effective March 20, 2020, we are expanding some drive-up access hours, increasing our call center staffing, and reminding all members of the various capabilities available through our digital channels and ATM networks.

We will also be closing our branch lobbies effective Friday, March 20, and we ask all members to use the drive-up for branch transactions.

What are the hours of operation of your Drive-Up?

Effective March 20, 2020, All of our Drive-Ups are open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday Central Time and from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturdays Central Time.

What will happen to branches without Drive-Ups?

Branches without drive-ups will close and will have limited services available by appointment only. ATMs will remain available. These branches do not have drive-ups:

  • Blaine, MN – Alternatives include Coon Rapids, and Central Avenue office in Minneapolis
  • Eden Prairie, MN – Alternatives include Chaska and Edina
  • Minneapolis, Chicago Avenue, MN – Alternative is Edina

The following branches are currently closed due to diminished area traffic:

  • Downtown Minneapolis – Rand Tower and Government Center – Alternatives include Brooklyn Center, Minnetonka, and Edina
  • Delta Air Lines Building C in Bloomington - Alternatives: Apple Valley and Edina
When will Wings Financial branch lobbies reopen for business?

We are closely monitoring the situation. As soon as we believe that we can reopen our branch lobbies safely, we will do so.

What services can I get going through the Drive-Up?

Virtually all services you can get inside the branch are available when using one of our Drive-Ups. In certain cases, things like debit cards or cashier’s checks may not be available at a Drive-Up. In those instances, please follow the instructions posted on the door of the branch.

Can I access my safe deposit box inside the branch?

Yes. You can make an appointment to visit your safe deposit box either using CU Online or the Wings Mobile app. Click on the “Contact” tab in CU Online or the “Schedule An Appointment” tab on CU Online to schedule your visit.
