We are grateful for your patience and loyalty during this time, when our partner for international wire transfers and foreign currency services, Travelex, suspended their world-wide services on December 31, 2019.  Since that date we have been actively working with Travelex to ensure services are being restored with the utmost focus on the integrity and security of and Travelex systems.

Please be assured that BFSFCU systems have not been affected by this event, and BFSFCU continues to closely monitor the response and restoration of systems performed by Travelex.
