Great Flood of 2019
More than ever, we fulfilled our mission during the Great Flood of 2019, which took a financial toll on many of our members. The flood affected Nebraska and 8 other Midwest states for most of the year, and some homes were still underwater in December. A FNCU member and his family from Bellevue, NE lost their home and everything in it. They called and let us know what happened, and while they were looking for a place to live, we deferred their loan payments, and set up an Overdraft Line of Credit to help them pay for other expenses. We received many calls like this from members, and we were able to help them by offering low-interest loans, waived fees, deferred payments and refinancing.
