Sparkle with a ViaGEM Loan
 
The ViaGEM Loan is a line of credit requiring a one-time application.  It can be used to purchase gifts for family or friends, fuel up the sleigh for holiday travels, or just enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a little extra jingle in your pocket!

Apply for ViaGEM Loan:
Once approved, you may access your money as you need it, up to your approved limit* by advancing the loan in ViaConnect or ViaMobile, calling or visiting any branch, or even setting up overdraft protection to protect your ViaChecking.

If you are interested in contributing to Nurse's Aid, please contact Michelle Peterson at 765.674.6631.
 
International Credit Union Day
 
How do you get from where you are to where you want to be?  Maybe you aren’t ready for kids, a big house, and two cars in the driveway—maybe you are.  Maybe you will be someday.

Maybe you dream of traveling the world, running marathons in every state, raising horses on a small patch of land in rural Montana, living in an 800-square-foot house you own outright, opening a small coffee shop on Main Street that also sells used records, retiring in your 40s, or zooming to work on a new scooter.

Maybe you just want to pay off all your student loan debt.

The point is, wouldn’t it be nice to know that regardless of what you want today, tomorrow, or years from now that you’re ready?

As a credit union, we care more about you than chasing huge profits.  So if debt is holding you down, or you want to learn how to nail the basics, or you simply want reassurance you’re on the right track—come see us.

On October 19, Via Credit Union will, along with more than 56,000 credit unions around the world, celebrate International Credit Union Day (ICU Day), and the philosophy and achievements of the credit union movement.

Via Credit Union celebrates ICU Day because it believes the not-for-profit structure and people-first principles of credit unions make them the ideal financial partners for all people. This year’s ICU Day theme is “Dreams Thrive Here,” a celebration of how credit unions help people achieve their biggest goals in life.

Members are welcome to bring a friend or family member to any branch to enjoy cookies and celebrate a worldwide movement that’s made helping people its No. 1 priority for more than 160 years.
 
Financing Now Available at Local Businesses
 
Via Credit Union has recently partnered with local businesses to provide fast and convenient financing for anything from golf carts to automotive repairs to dental work. Here’s how it works:
  1. Visit a participating business
  2. Let the business know you’d like to finance your purchase with ViaCU.
  3. The business will take your credit application and forward it to a ViaCU Loan Officer. 
  4. Once the application is processed, you’ll complete loan documents and be on your way.
 
Docu-Shield Community Shred Day
 
Community Shred Day is Saturday, November 4, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.  This service is available for individuals, not businesses.  Docu-Shield is part of the Carey Services’ sheltered workshop located at 2724 South Carey Street in Marion (across from Lowe’s on the Bypass). No magazines or newspapers, please.

Question for ViaInsurance Agent: Beth Combs
 
Does my Homeowner's Policy cover flood?

No, it does not. Flood is an excluded peril. Flood insurance is a separate policy governed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  Generally, the mortgage lender will advise you if your home is in a flood zone. 

Flood is defined as surface waters & standing water either from a lake, river or pond, even rain. The back up/sewer endorsement available for homeowners policies refers to city water/sewer systems or septic systems issues. Contact your agent and inquire about the exposure for back up damage at your home.
