Planning for Disaster

In the event of a mandatory evacuation, we will operate at full capacity at our disaster recovery site. In addition, we've purchased a state of the art natural gas generator that will allow us to run locally once officials allow us to return even if electricity is still out. The natural gas generator is 100 KW and is reliable, durable, safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly. Neches Federal Credit Union will still receive direct deposit/payroll via ACH. Neches FCU will have disaster recovery teams in place in the event that a disaster is declared and we will be able to be reached by dialing toll free at: 1-800-851-5132.

The credit union encourages members to plan for a cash flow and to use their Neches FCU Debit Card with Rewards. The debit card will allow members to access cash during any situation.

In the event of mandatory evacuation:

  • After a disaster is declared, our nation wide credit union shared branch network will become available giving members access to their accounts from over 2,500 different credit union locations.
  • Members will still be able to access their cash even in the event of an evacuation.
  • Our state of the art generator will allow us to operate at full capacity once local officials give us the ok to return.
  • All debit and credit cards, online services, share drafts, direct deposits, and ACH transactions will be fully operational.
  • You can call us (even in the event of an evacuation) toll free at 1-800-851-5132.
  • Please check on a regular basis as we will be posting updates for our members.
