Walloped by winter weather? We can help

Winter weather medium

Hurricane Sandy’s swath of destruction showed how mean Mother Nature can be. Here in northern New England, Old Man Winter can be just as brutal, dropping snow-laden tree limbs onto rooftops, sneaking under shingles to soak the ceiling below, driving furnaces into nervous breakdowns, and turning perfectly good cars into ice skates.

Fortunately, you have a good way to cope with an unexpected winter expense. You’re a member of VSECU.

Credit unions are the best place for borrowing, as Money magazine reported a year ago1. As a not-for-profit cooperative, we usually offer better rates on personal loans, auto loans, and home improvement loans than for-profit banks can. We’re especially proud that in last year’s Northeast U.S. Bank & Credit Union Customer Experience Survey, credit unions outscored banks by nearly 30 percentage points in the category of “Doing What Is in Your Best Interest.”

In addition, because we’re local we can make quick decisions. In most cases, we’ll respond to a member’s loan request within hours. That’s important if you need a roof fixed or a furnace replaced right away.

Life is unpredictable. Fortunately, we’re not. If you ever need financial help, just give us a call, 802/800 371-5162.
