Loss of a Loved One

You’ve already taken the first step toward greater financial security by joining our credit union family. Providing greater security for your family is important. We want to help you if you experience an unexpected family emergency like an accident or death. It’s always best to prepare before these things happen. Here are a few things that can help protect you and your loved ones. 

Set up Emergency Fund

It’s always a good idea to put some money away for those unexpected emergencies, putting a little bit away at a time helps you save. We have several accounts that can help.

After losing a loved one, your income may be reduced, and you may need to re-evaluate your spending. We are ready to help any way that we can.
