During the year amendments were made to the Regular Unsecured, Special Education, Tuition
Plus and Monimax Loan products allowing members to access loans up to a maximum of
$900,000 above their shares. A ceiling was established for loans secured by motor vehicles
and real estate in an effort to limit the Credit Union’s exposure in the event of impairment.
The HOPE Loan product was discontinued; the maximum repayment term for loans secured
by real estate and motor vehicles were increased while interest rates were reduced in order
to make loans more affordable to you our members.
Adjustments were made to the Delinquency Policy, to allow our members who may have had
minor challenges in servicing their loans secured by cash held at the Credit Union, to maintain
the loan but transfers could be done from the share security to clear the arrears. This is a
win-win situation has your funds are still in intact and your arrears are cleared.
