Back by popular demand was OE Federal’s Create-A-Greeting Card Contest held specifically for employees’ children and grandchildren. This contest gave employees’ children and grandchildren the opportunity to submit holiday themed artwork for the 2016 greeting card. There were two categories; Category 1 for kindergarten through second grade and Category 2 for third grade through fifth grade. All artwork submitted was judged by a committee of OE Federal employees and the winning artwork will be the 2016 OE Federal Credit Union Holiday Card.

We were delighted by the number of entries and the creativity of the children. Great care was given when the children created their artwork.

The winners for the 2016 Create-A-Greeting Card Contest are as follows; winner in Category 1 for kindergarten through second grade: Kaetlyn and winner in Category 2 for third grade through fifth grade: Gabriel.

Thank you to all the children who submitted artwork!

Wells Fargo has been fined $185 million for illegally opening accounts for existing customers. More than 2 million accounts were opened without customer permission. The financial ramification to consumers is still being sorted through, and many people have questions about their accounts, credit report, and the financial impact. OE Federal wants members who may also be Wells Fargo customers to know the Credit Union is here to help.

It’s important to understand that if you’re a Wells Fargo customer, you may be a victim. In many instances, Wells Fargo customers do not realize their accounts have been compromised, or they may be experiencing other credit issues related to the incident such as paying a higher interest rate on a loan due to a negatively impacted credit score. 

OE Federal partners with a financial fitness program called BALANCE to provide you with free access to expert financial education, resources, and counseling. BALANCE is available to assist our members with determining if their Wells Fargo accounts have been affected by these illegal practices.

BALANCE certified counselors will work one-on-one with OE Federal members to review credit reports and determine if you were affected, and if so, recommend a course of action to repair your credit.

OE Federal is continuing to improve fraud security by extending embedded chip technology to all of our Visa Debit Cards.

Our members’ financial security is at the forefront of everything we do, which is why we are proud to offer this additional security measure. In order for us to make this switch, we will be automatically issuing new OE Federal Visa EMV Debit Cards in batches over the next few months. Members receiving a new card will receive a notice prior to their card being issued so the member will know when to expect it.

Once the new Visa EMV Debit Card is received, please activate it immediately as the old Debit Card will be deactivated shortly after. To learn more about the EMV Chip Card technology and to view frequently asked questions, click here.

If you have any questions regarding the switch over to EMV Chip Debit Cards, please call us at 800.877.4444 to speak with an OE Federal Member Service Representative.

  • 102 vehicles sold
  • 816 hot dogs eaten
  • 1,400 waters and 1,184 sodas were consumed
  • 1,000 happy members were served

We know that our members look forward to this event each year, so be sure to keep an eye out for an announcement of our 2017 Auto Sale date in future MoneyWise newsletters!
