With wildfires raging through Oregon, many PCFCU members have been affected. To help, we have a few relief options available to our members.
Emergency Skip-a-Payments: During this time we are considering all PCFCU loans for emergency skip payments. We’re also waiving the normal $35 skip fee. Submit our regular Skip form or contact us at 541-343-6238 | 800-477-3328.
Wildfire Relief Loans: We are offering wildfire relief loans up to $2,500 for wildfire related financial hardships to our existing members. These loans have:
- a zero percent interest rate (0% APR);
- a maximum term of 24 months; and
- up to 90 days to make your first loan payment.
These loan funds can be used for purposes related to this wildfire hardship. For example, rent and/or deposits to obtain housing, hotel costs, car rental, clothing, etc. Call us at 541-343-6238 | 800-477-3328 to apply or apply online.
Other Options: We will review each member’s circumstances individually to see where we can suggest other options as well. Members may take advantage of all options or a single option determined by their individual circumstances. But, we can’t help if you don’t contact us.
