Over $1.2 million paid to First Financial members this year

Despite the disruption brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, First Financial Federal Credit Union has distributed more than $1.2 million to its members in the first half of the year.

Through First Financial’s quarterly rewards program, its members received over $586,000 in dividends and rebates in just the second quarter alone. The rewards are one of the many ways the credit union returns profits back to its members.

“This year has been far from normal and has presented a lot of new challenges for our members and community,” said Eric Church, First Financial President/CEO. “With over a million dollars already returned to our members, our quarterly rewards are structured to not only provide extra relief during these unprecedented times but also to show our appreciation for their membership. Today, tomorrow and every day, we’re committed to helping them every way we can.”

First Financial checking account holders earned over $183,000 in dividends for the second quarter. Members with the Better Rewards checking account earned the highest dividends and were eligible for additional Visa® debit card rebates. First Financial credit card holders were also eligible for cash rebates. Altogether, debit and credit card holders received over $403,000 in cash rebates.

In addition to the ongoing quarterly rewards, First Financial continues to offer resources to provide its members with financial relief during these challenging times. This increased support includes loan payment deferral options, increased availability of funds, no penalty early withdrawals from share certificates, and free financial education.
