Attention, Previous Chatham Federal Credit Union Members:
You may have seen several announcements or received a call over the past year stating the routing and transit number, 261271982, previously used by Chatham Federal Credit Union members will soon be retired and replaced with the MembersFirst routing number, 261174432.
This was originally scheduled for April 30, 2021; however, with the IRS/Treasury posting of COVID relief payments based on tax return information, MFCU has decided to delay this date until further notice in the best interest of our members.
Although the retirement date has been delayed, we encourage you to prepare for this change soon as once the new retirement date is set, any associated ACH transactions after that date will be declined or returned.
If you previously received a call regarding this change or if you are unsure whether your checks display this number, locate the numbers at the bottom of your check(s) and compare the first nine digits with the number soon to be retired. If you currently own checks that display the routing number 261271982, to avoid interruption in check payments, please collect all unused checks and checkbooks and securely shred and dispose of them or bring them to a branch near you for secure disposal.
To order new standard checks at no cost to you, please call (912) 352-2902 or stop by for assistance.
We understand this may be an inconvenience; however, we believe the benefit of replacing your checks at no charge is well worth the investment. If you have questions, please give us a call at (912) 352-2902 or stop by any branch for assistance.
