CU offering disaster relief for Dolly victims
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (7/29/08)--Texas-based Security Service FCU (SSFCU) is offering a financial disaster relief program to help members and potential members recover from Hurricane Dolly. The hurricane, a Category 2, hit Brownsville, Texas, last week. The storm damaged some buildings in southern Texas and northeastern Mexico and caused some flooding (News Now July 25). Residents of Rio Grande Valley, Corpus Christi and Coastal Bend, Texas, will have access to:
* $1,000 pre-approved emergency relief loans at 3.95% for a maximum term of 12 months for existing SSFCU members; * $2,500 qualifying emergency relief loans at 4.95% for a maximum term of 24 months for qualifying SSFCU members; and * An emergency 30-day skip payment program with no fee.
“We’re offering these options to assist our members as they work to get things back to normal during this difficult time,” said David Reynolds, president/CEO of SSFCU. “Security Service is committed to helping our members and the community, especially when they are in need of our support the most.”
