Holiday Skip-A-Pay

Celebrating the holidays is fun, but it can be expensive.  To help our members get some extra cash, we are once again offering an opportunity to Skip-A-Payment on up to two of your loans.

Choose the loan(s) and the month that you want to skip - November, December, or January* - and we'll take care of the rest.

*There is a $25 processing fee per loan skipped.  Offer is not available on Home Equity, Mini-Mortgage, Holiday Special, and Signature Loans.  Loans must have originated 6 months prior to be eligible.  If recent data shows that you have been delinquent on the requested loan(s), we reserve the right to deny your application to Skip-A-Payment.  Loan interest will accrue and the maturity date of all loans affedted by the program will be extended.


Christmas Club Accounts

The perfect way to save for next year's holiday season.

  • Deposits of any amount can be made at any time.
  • We allow one emergency withdrawal each year.
  • A $2.00 fee will be charged for each additional withdrawal.
  • If your 2015 Christmas Club was funded through direct deposit or payroll deduction, we will automatically begin a 2016 account unless we are notified otherwise.
  • Christmas Club checks are included with the third quarter member statement.


Credit Union Week October 13th - 16th "People Helping People":

Credit unions stand for the power of people helping people.  Each year in October, we celebrate this cooperative spirit during Credit Union Week to show our appreciation to our members.

  • Drawing for two $25 VISA gift cards - every member who comes into the office during the week to conduct credit union business will be entered in the drawing.
  • Member Appreciation Day: Thursday, October 15th - treats will be available in the lobby.
