Frequently Asked Questions

The primary savings is considered the membership account which provides our members with voting rights at the credit union and will always need to remain open and active as long as there are share products or loan products listed under the housing account.

There are two options to make principal only payments. (Excludes first mortgages and VISA Credit Cards)

You can pay an extra amount at the same time you make your regularly scheduled payment. The extra amount paid will automatically be applied to the principal balance. The regular payment and the extra amount must be applied on the same date with this option.

You can make principal only payments at other times as long as your loan is current. Please note, a principal only payment will not advance your due date, and will not take the place of normal monthly payments.

When mailing a check for principal only payments, clearly indicate in the memo section of the check, "PRINCIPAL ONLY" and the account number. Any payment applied as principal and interest, that is not notated "PRINCIPAL ONLY", cannot be reversed and reapplied later.
