How Will 7-Day Processing Affect Your Credit Union this Holiday Weekend?

Beginning Thursday, July 1st, CU*Answers will be running daily processing 7 days a week, 365 days a year!  That means we will no longer be skipping processing on Federal holidays, even if our normal operations are otherwise closed to observe the holiday.

What does this mean for the weekend of July 4th?

Sunday, July 4th and Monday, July 5th will both be handled as normal processing days.  Both days will include the production of daily reports.
