Hurricane Updates







Two months have passed since the devastation of Hurricane Michael hit our community. Our thoughts and prayers have constantly been with everyone affected.

We know that this hurricane has affected nearly everyone in Bay County, and like all organizations, Panhandle Educators FCU had suffered some major damages. We have made great progress daily, and now five of our six locations are open, along with consumer, business, and mortgage lending.

We are very appreciative of our community, and we want to thank our employees and members for their commitment. It was essential for our members to have access to their funds and we did everything in our power to give them that with success.

Together we are rebuilding the community, one day at a time.

Greg Frith, President/CEO
