Disaster Relief Loan

Home Loans Disaster Relief Loan

                    First Federal Credit Union has developed a unique Disaster Relief Loan to assist members affected by the recent derecho storm.  The Disaster Relief Loan will provide up to a $5,000.00 unsecured loan at zero percent interest for up to 120 days.  This will allow a member to borrow interest free until insurance claims or other assistance is received.  If the member does NOT payoff the Disaster Relief Loan during the interest-free period, then interest will start accruing at a below-market interest rate,of 6.90% - 9.90%, depending on the borrower’s credit profile.   
          We recognize the difficult circumstances many area families find themselves in due to the impact of the storm and knew we needed to develop a quick program that will truly help these families and try to alleviate some of their financial concerns”.
          Anyone who lives, works, or worships in  Linn County, Iowa is eligible to apply for the Disaster Relief Loan.
