Assistance Available for Members Impacted by COVID-19!

  • March 26, 2020
With many communities and businesses temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus, we understand this could be a hard time financially on a lot of individuals who may be out of work without pay. Unfortunate circumstances such as this can end up putting families in a financial crisis and Astera wants you to know that we are here to help you through any hard times you may experience. Providing a consultative approach and flexibility in assisting members is a cornerstone of what Astera Credit Union does. If you need financial assistance, we have several options that may be available to you.


Some of the assistance we can offer is:

  • The “Lending a Hand” Loan – A loan designed to help fill the gap for those members experiencing a loss of income caused by the COVID-19 shut-downs. No payments and 0% interest for the first 3 months, then adjusts to the low rate of 4.99% APR for the remainder of the loan.*
  • Snap Cash – Small loan to hold you over until your next pay day. $500-$1,000; 6-month repayment term aligned with your payroll schedule.
  • Skip-a-Pay – Allows you to skip one month of your loan payment. You can access this benefit through online banking, or by contacting the credit union.
  • Line-of-Credit – Use only what you need. Pay only what you use.
  • Home Equity Loans – Use the equity in your home to pay off high-interest debt.


If you need financial consultation, we also encourage you to contact GreenPath Financial Wellness.
