The Board of Directors, Management and Staff of CSE Federal Credit Union are closely monitoring the rapidly- changing situation around the COVID-19 event, responding to new information as it arises and preparing for all possible scenarios to safeguard the health of our members, employees and volunteers. CSE Federal Credit Union (CSE) is committed to the safety and soundness of our credit union and understands that our members may be impacted by COVID-19 and may need financial support. We are ready to provide financial guidance and discuss solutions that may be available to you during this unprecedented hardship. In order to help members with this crisis, we are implementing the following provisions:
IF YOU HAVE A CURRENT CONSUMER LOAN
- CSE is automatically deferring your monthly loan payments for a period of 90 days as long as your loan was current as of February 01, 2020. This includes loans with payments set to pay automatically (ex: Direct Deposit, Automatic Transfers from Checking or Savings). To take full advantage of these loan deferrals, you must contact a CSE Representative to stop your scheduled automatic payments, or your payments will continue to post as scheduled. Please notify us at 337.477.2000 (local) or 800.625.5747 (toll- free) for additional questions or concerns regarding this action.
- This 90-day deferment does not include Single-Payment, Interim-Construction & Home Equity, Credit Cards, and Share Certificate Secured loans, including share secured balloon loans.
- Interest will continue to accrue during this deferral period. Members whose loan payments are deferred may make monthly or interest-only payments if desired.
- CSE FCU WILL CONTINUE TO ACCEPT PAYMENTS DIRECTED TO THE CREDIT UNION. PAYMENTS WILL BE POSTED UPON RECEIPT AND WILL NOT BE REVERSED. IN ORDER TO AVOID ADDITIONAL INTEREST CHARGES, IT IS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO CONTINUE MAKING YOUR LOAN PAYMENTS; WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO IF POSSIBLE.
- CALLS ARE NOT NECESSARY IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE YOUR NORMAL LOAN PAYMENTS AS AFTER 90 DAYS, THE ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT WILL BE RE-EVALUATED AND ANY ADDITIONAL OR NECESSARY ACCOMMODATIONS MAY BE MADE AT THAT TIME.
FIRST MORTGAGE REAL ESTATE, MOBILE HOME, CAMPS AND LAND LOANS
