Veridian Credit Union makes disaster assistance loans available

Waterloo, Iowa: Veridian Credit Union has set aside $3 million to offer disaster assistance loans to those who have suffered property damage or hardship due to recent weather conditions. This loan is designed to offer homeowners a low-interest way to help manage expenses resulting from weather-related damages to their home. Such damage might include, but is not limited to, frozen pipes, flooding or storm damage. Disaster Assistance Loan amounts are available up to $5,000 and have terms up to 36 months. The loan has a fixed rate between 6.75% APR and 7.5% APR, based on eligibility.

"Weather-related damages to a home can cause significant, unexpected expenses, and even temporary displacement for the owner," said Doug Gilbertson, Veridian's Senior Vice President of Operations. "The Disaster Assistance Loan is designed to offer a lower-interest option to homeowners who might otherwise turn to high-interest credit cards to make necessary repairs."

Individuals may apply for a Disaster Assistance Loan through July 1, 2014, or until $3 million is loaned out, whichever occurs first. More details and applications are available in any Veridian branch, over the phone at (800) 235-3228 or online at
