We understand that circumstances and unexpected events can challenge your household budget. And, sometimes this challenge is just too much to keep current with all of your obligations. If you have a loan with the Credit Union and find you are falling behind or struggling to keep up with payments, contact us!
The sooner you contact the Credit Union, the more options you may have available to you. In certain situations, we may be able to offer a short-term extension on your payments or a modification to your loan. Additionally, the sooner you contact us, you can lessen the impact on your credit standing with the Credit Union and the credit bureaus. Let us work with you to find ways to help you with your situation.
The right option depends on individual circumstances. We can determine if you qualify for temporary or long-term relief, including solutions that may allow you to stay in your home (refinance, repayment, forbearance, loan modification) or leave your home while avoiding foreclosure (short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure).
