If you are one of the many affected by the on-going government shutdown, R.I.A. Federal Credit Union can help. We know how frustrating and frightening it is to lose a paycheck, and how that’s compounded by not knowing when an end is in sight. As a service to our members who have had pay suspended due to the current shutdown, we offer the following:
1. If you currently have a loan with us, we can defer your loan payment up to 60 days, or work with you to reduce the rate/payment for up to six months. All you need to provide us is proof of your furlough status.
2. We are also offering a special payroll-impaired loan. You can get up to $5,000 at a special low rate for up to 18 months. You need to be a current member of R.I.A. Federal Credit Union, and provide proof of furlough status and your most recent paystub.
In addition to those programs offered specifically to help our furloughed members, there are other options that can help you through these times. Open to any member at any time, you may consider refinancing any current loans you have (to include mortgage) or getting a home equity loan.
Please do not hesitate to call us to discuss your current financial situation. We’re here to help. 1-800-742-CU4U.
