Wildfire disaster relief available

In response to the devastating wildfires in October, Patelco has activated its Disaster Relief Program to provide immediate financial resources to members in good standing who are affected by a natural disaster. This program includes access to no– or low-cost loans, reimbursement of non-network ATM fees, deferred loan payments, and more:

  • An immediate $500 personal loan at 0% interest for up to one year
  • Waiver of early withdrawal fees on any share certificates you may have with us
  • Reimbursement of any ATM fees for non-network ATM withdrawals
  • Reversal of NSF or late fees
  • Low interest loans at 5.5% APR for loans up to $10,000 (5-year term)
  • Payment extensions on your existing consumer loans and/or credit cards if they are paid current

We created this Program to help members return to financial and personal stability as quickly as possible in the event of a disaster. Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent fires. If you’ve been affected, give us a call at 800.358.8228 to let us know how we can help you at any time.
