We're here to help.
These are unprecedented times. We want to provide some relief.
We've heard your questions, listened to your needs, and took the time to put together these programs to ease your financial burdens. Here are some steps we're taking to help you live more comfortably.
We get it – you have bills to pay. That's why we're offering a no-interest, no-hassle Emergency Loan for members who have been directly impacted by a loss of income caused by the coronavirus. This includes, but is not limited to, layoffs, unemployment, or a hardship due to the care of an immediate family member. Featuring:
Limits from $1,000 to $5,000
Terms up to 12 months
Please note that the Emergency Loan program is only designed for hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applying is easy. Simply click the link below and select "Emergency Loan" from the drop down.
*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rates and terms available on new loans only. Certain relationship criteria are required to receive rates – ask for details. Credit union membership required with $25 minimum deposit – certain restrictions apply. Check with a Visions Federal Credit Union representative for membership eligibility details. Loan amounts range from $1,000 - $5,000. Emergency Loan payment would be $416.67 on a $5,000 loan at 0.00% APR with a 12-month term. Must be 18 years of age or older to qualify; proof of income required. All applications are subject to creditworthiness. Effective March 23, 2020. Offer subject to change without notice.
We Care 3-Month Skip-a-Pay
We don't want you to worry about your loans. If you're struggling with making your consumer loan payments, you can skip up to three consecutive monthly payments – penalty-free**.
And, we're waiving the policy of no more than two Skip-a-Payments in a 12-month period for this program. That means that if you took advantage of our Double Skip over the summer, you're still eligible to apply.

Mortgage Forbearance/Modification Program
We’re offering a 3-month forbearance on mortgages for those who have been affected by this crisis***.
By requesting this program, your principal and interest payments will be suspended for three months and these deferred payments will not negatively impact your credit standing.
SBA Paycheck Protection Program
Visions is now accepting applications for the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program. Learn more and apply today by clicking the link below.
90 Days No Payments on New Auto Loans
We understand that you may need a new vehicle during this time. We also understand that it might not be in your budget. That's why – effective March 23, 2020 – you have the option of delaying your first payment for 90 days on new auto loans****.
New or used, cars, trucks, and motorcycles – any new auto loan you take out on or after March 23, 2020 qualifies. Ask your lender at closing how to take advantage of this offer.
Important Information for Vehicle Leases
If you have a Visions auto lease and have been directly impacted by a loss of income caused by the coronavirus, including, but not limited to, layoffs, unemployment, or a hardship due to the care of an immediate family member, please give us a call at 800.242.2120, ext. 10282. Representatives are available Monday-Friday, 8 am – 5 pm to discuss your options.
Fee Relief and Rebates
To further help our members, we will be temporarily waiving and rebating a number of ATM, overdraft, and credit card fees.
Suspension of Regulation D Transfer Limitations
Effective April 28, 2020, we’ve suspended the Reg D requirement which limited members to six monthly automatic transfers/debits from savings accounts. This change was made with our members' interests in mind, but please note that Reg D is a federal mandate and may be reinstated at any time.
