In the aftermath of the Hurricane Florence, we provided you with steps to help you get started on the road to recovery. But for members who do not qualify for government assistance or need assistance beyond what FEMA offers, your Credit Union may be able to fill the gap.
Four ways LGFCU can help
Small loans. If you need a personal loan for immediate essentials, repairs, or to get you through to your next paycheck, your Credit Union can make $500 to $2,500 loans you can pay back over time.
Vehicle loans. If you lost your vehicle because of the storm, we can help you contact your insurance company and adjuster. Representatives in the branches are ready to help guide you through the loan process for a replacement vehicle.
Real estate loans. As a result of the storm, we recognize your home may have been declared a total loss and you may not be allowed to rebuild. We will provide as much assistance as we can. If you financed property with LGFCU, and can rebuild or have minor damage, let’s discuss your options.
Loan extensions. Hurricane Florence may have impacted your ability to repay your loans in a timely manner. We may be able extend your loan payment to help you get through this period.
If any of these options would help improve your financial situation if you were impacted by Hurricane Florence, come in to a local branch so we can discuss which options are best for you.
Watch out for auto buying scams
When you need to buy a car to replace a vehicle you lost in the storm, some individuals may try to sell you a flood-damaged vehicle. Please be aware of this practice and make sure you ask if the auto you are considering buying has suffered flood damage. Before approving an auto loan, branch staff will obtain a Full Vehicle History Report as circumstances warrant.
