Message from the President/CEO


All open lobbies have been fitted with Plexiglas shields to protect both members and employees. Proper safety and cleaning procedures are being followed. To further protect both employees and members, we have purchased and are regularly treating our facilities with a CDC approved sanitizing system. Employees are wearing masks and following recommended CDC social distancing guidelines; we ask members who visit our facilities to do the same.

Contact center hours have been permanently extended (click here for available hours).

With the exception of the two offices located inside Veterans Administration Medical Centers (Gainesville, Lake City), Radiant Credit Union lobbies and drive thru lanes are open regular hours. Our two offices located inside Veterans Administration Medical Centers will remain closed for the foreseeable future. 

Please, know it is our hope, my hope, that you and your families remain safe.

We greatly appreciate your patience during these continued trying times.

Scam Alerts from Federal Trade Commission

From Alachua County Sheriff's  Office:
The Security Team has been alerted by state and federal authorities of malware being spread by posing as a COVID-19 update.   A malicious website pretending to be the live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by Johns Hopkins University is circulating on the internet waiting for unwitting internet users to visit the website. Visiting the website infects the user with the AZORult trojan, an information stealing program which can exfiltrate a variety of sensitive data. It is likely being spread via infected email attachments, malicious online advertisements, and social engineering. Furthermore, anyone searching the internet for a Coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website.
