Disaster Relief Loans


Helping Members Affected by Hurricane Florence

North Carolina is reeling from the effects of this storm. Recovery will be a long process as eastern NC manages the aftermath of flooding, displaced families, shuttered businesses and the tragic loss of life.  Many of the affected counties have been declared disasters, all in areas served by Self-Help Credit Union.

As a first response to our members, we have created the Disaster Relief Loan.

Here’s how it’s structured:

  • Borrow up to $5,000 at 6% interest for up to 36 months.
  • Loan purpose must be related to Hurricane Florence recovery and may include home repairs, replacement of personal belongings, and cash flow interruption due to loss of work time and pay. Paystubs and other verifications required.
  • Only available to existing Self-Help CU members.

How to Apply

Contact your local branch to apply. Members may also apply online by logging into online banking and clicking "Loan Application" under "Online Services"  -- please indicate in the application that is for disaster relief.
