Virginia Branch Closure

Eight years ago, we embarked on a new era with the opening of a TEFCU branch in Alexandria, Virginia, to expand our footprint and serve our members outside Washington, DC. Five years later, the COVID-19 pandemic unexpectedly occurred, disrupting everyday life and the economy, impacting businesses and individuals alike. Although our doors remained opened during COVID-19, we experienced a significant decrease in member volume. Three years later, TEFCU’s Virginia branch remains severely underutilized.

In light of the changing landscape, we will permanently close our Virginia branch effective Friday, August 4, 2023. The last day of operation for the Virginia branch will be Friday, August 4, 2023. With your support, TEFCU continues to thrive and grow while withstanding and embracing change. We developed and enhanced our technology for many years to bring our members a virtual banking experience that rivals larger financial institutions and creates efficiencies. As a result, we observed a preference for self-service options as an increasing number of members utilized our digital tools and services versus the number of in-branch visits.

TEFCU’s Dakota Crossing branch, located approximately 15 miles from the Virginia branch, will remain the hub for in-branch services. Additionally, nearly 30 shared branches are 3 to 15 miles from the Virginia branch. TEFCU members can make withdrawals and deposits at participating shared branches.

Most of TEFCU’s products and services are offered through Mobile and Online Banking. These convenient features put more time into your day, eliminating the need to visit a branch. In addition, we are continuously working towards making additional services available virtually. Below is an overview of some of the available digital features.
