Meet Our Newest Employee:



Phil is our newest “employee.”


He’s an artificial intelligence (AI) powered digital assistant whose sole job is to help you.

Whether that be answering a question, checking your balance, or transferring money, Phil can help.

Benefits & Convenience of Using Phil

At Financial Resources FCU, we’re always leveraging the newest innovations and providing our members a variety of options to communicate with us. Phil offers a quick and efficient way to provide answers without the wait, including via phone or SMS (text), 24/7.

Phil can help you with the following, 24/7:

  • Checking & Savings Balances
  • How to Open an Account
  • Product Questions
  • Finding the Nearest Branch or ATM
  • Hours of Operation
  • How to Register for Digital Banking
  • Loan Application Process
  • And So Much More!

When you dial our number, you’ll be greeted by Phil. Although he’s a digital assistant, you can speak to him naturally, asking your questions as you would speak to anyone else. If Phil doesn’t understand your request or can’t help with it, you’ll be forwarded to a Member Service Center Representative to make sure you get the help you need during business hours. After hours, you’re welcome to access your accounts via Online Banking or our Mobile App.

Phil will need some time and a bit of patience to get acquainted to all the new efficiencies and technological advancements available to better serve you. Not to mention, getting to know you, our members. So, as we embark on this task of training Phil, we ask for you to try it and experience his service for yourselves. We promise he will get much better over time and while he’s in training, he has the full support of our entire team at Financial Resources FCU who are ready to jump in. Each of those pinch-hit efforts by our team members will be learning experiences for Phil and will make him better equipped to serve you.
