If you’re experiencing financial distress and are potentially facing foreclosure, let United Trades Federal Credit Union help. Depending on the type of loan you have and your individual circumstances, there are many options that may be available to you.
- United Trades FCU may be able to modify your loan to make your payments more affordable.
- You may be able to refinance your loan, extending the payment period, and/or reducing the interest rate, thereby lowering your monthly payment.
- You may be able to sell your home and repay your loan in its entirety. If your home’s value is less than what you owe, United Trades FCU may be willing to accept less money than you owe and develop a repayment plan for the remaining amounts due.
UNITED TRADES FCU IS WILLING TO EXPLORE MANY POSSIBLE OPTIONS BUT PLEASE ACT IMMEDIATELY. CONTACT OUR MEMBER SERVICES TEAM AS SOON AS YOU REALIZE YOU ARE UNABLE TO MAKE YOUR PAYMENTS.
