News & Events

Get around, get around, we get around. You're almost as likely to find a CoVantage worker at a charity brat fry or debt reduction workshop as you are in one of our branches. Check this page frequently for info on credit union news and events.

What's going on with us? A lot. Here are the highlights.

 

Lobby Closures

With the health and safety of the community and members in mind, CoVantage is adjusting our in-person services.

We are temporarily suspending walk-in lobby traffic at all locations starting Monday, September 28. Even with this change, CoVantage will continue to be available to serve you the following ways: 

  • Drive ups ARE OPEN during regular hours,* which can be accessed by car or temporarily as a pedestrian (pedestrians please be alert and utilize the closest lane to the building). 
     
  • Appointments are available inside our branches if you have specific needs that require meeting with a staff member or getting into your safe deposit box. Call 800-398-2667 to schedule one at a specific branch.
     
  • Our Contact Center can assist with a variety of requests. Representatives are available from 7 am to 7 pm Monday-Friday, and Saturday 8:30 am-noon. Please call 800-398-2667 for assistance.
     
  • Our digital services including transferring money, depositing checks, applying for and signing for loans, and opening accounts are all available 24/7/365 through MyCoVantage.  

We will re-open our branch lobbies when the number of COVID-19 cases are no longer on the rise. Watch for future announcements regarding our plans and thank you for your understanding as we take appropriate precautions to ensure your safety. 

*The drive-up in Crystal Falls is currently closed but will reopen on Saturday, October 3.

CoVantage Credit Union has announced plans to relocate their current Rothschild branch

According to CoVantage Credit Union President Charlie Zanayed, “Our Board of Directors believe now is the opportune time to build a new branch in Rothschild to serve our growing membership. More and more members in Marathon County are trusting CoVantage with their financial needs and we’re so grateful to provide this new convenient office.”

CoVantage has purchased land at the corner of County Hwy XX and Trailwood Lane in the Village of Rothschild. In the spring, construction will begin on a new 2,700-square foot branch that will feature a modern design. This office will offer a combination of digital services and personal interactions with staff to ensure members are served in an efficient and friendly manner. The new Rothschild branch will have staff available to assist members with loans and deposit accounts. The branch will also offer Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs) to provide fast, convenient service. The ITMs will allow members to interact with live, local tellers using video technology, where they can complete a wide range of services.
