1/15/19 Announcement by Bayer Corporation regarding PGH Headquarters
While deeply saddened by the announcement of Bayer Corporation’s decision to close their Bayer Robinson Twp. Headquarters in Pittsburgh by 2021, we want to reassure our Bayer Heritage FCU members that our credit union branch located on the Bayer campus will remain open and fully functioning. Our credit union is not affiliated with Bayer Corporation. We are a separate entity.

You can rest assured that your funds are safe and secure.
With that being said, we recognize the stress and financial uncertainty that our members who are currently employed by Bayer in Pittsburgh will face. We have a Financial Advisor, Rob Duffy, available to assist you in the coming months. In addition, our financial counselors are available to offer their help. You are valued members and we will do our very best to serve you during and after this transition.
Please Keep Your Mailing Address Updated With The Credit Union
It's very important that you notify Bayer Heritage FCU of any changes to your mailing address. If you've had a recent address change, please contact us and we'll be happy to update your information in our records.
