Disaster Relief Loan Program

We're Here To Help

Our hearts go out to those affected by this year’s challenging circumstances. Members who have been impacted are eligible to apply for our Disaster Relief Loan and Skip-A-Pay (skip up to two months of payments on either an installment loan, line of credit, or one month payment on a credit card). See below for details.

If you have already utilized the Skip-a-Pay option and need additional assistance with your payments, we can help. Please fill out the form, and one of our representatives will contact you to learn more about your circumstances.


Skip-A-Pay Request

If you’ve experienced a temporary financial hardship and can’t pay your consumer loan payment in full or on time, you can request to defer your credit card and/or auto loan payments with Travis Credit Union. Use code "COVID" or "Wildfire" to waive the fee.
