To participate, simply complete and return a skip-a-payment application along with a $25 processing fee for each deferred loan payment. (June 3rd -August 30th, 2019)

*Interest will continue to accumulate on your loan during the month you skip your payment. Each member is allowed to skip a monthly payment after six months worth of payments have been applied. Credit cards and loans secured by real estate do not qualify for this program. All loan payments must be current to qualify. All accounts must be in good standing to qualify.

Risk Alert

Vishing Scam Leads to PIN-Based Debit Fraud.
Members are being targeted in a vishing (phone-based phishing) scam in which fraudsters spoof phone numbers making the calls appear to originate from the credit union. The members are duped into providing CVV2/CVC2 codes and expiration dates for their debit cards. The fraudsters, already possessing the counterfeit mag stripe debit cards, use the information to change the PINs through voice response units. Then, they use the counterfeit cards to make ATM withdrawals, as well as purchases at Wal-Mart in Florida and Georgia. Credit unions in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Virginia have been impacted by the scam.

Never give personal information over the phone.

Use "credit" not "debit" on all transactions (except ATM cash withdrawals). This can protect you from potential PIN access fraud.


Account Verification Letter

The Credit Union’s independent auditors, Nearman, Maynard, Vallez, CPAs, PA., are conducting an annual audit of our financial statement. This is an important part of fulfilling the audit requirement established by the National Credit Union Administration, the governmental body that regulates all federally insured credit unions. If you receive a letter asking to verify your account balance as of March 31, 2018, please complete and return as instructed.
