COVID-19 Member Assistant Programs
During these uncertain times, Austin Telco is committed to working with you. Many members of Austin Telco have been adversely affected by the virus and the financial burdens associated with the rapidly changing conditions.
To assist those that have been impacted by a reduction or total loss of income due to the pandemic, Austin Telco has implemented the following temporary measures to help ease the burden that they may be facing:
- No share certificate early withdrawal penalties:
Members who withdraw at least $5,000 from their certificate (or the entire certificate if the current balance is less than $5,000), will not have to pay any early withdrawal fees. This program will remain in effect thru June 30, 2020.
- No loan late payment fees:
Late payment fees on consumer loans, home equity loans, and commercial loans will be waived thru June 30, 2020.
- Home Equity/Home Improvement Payment Deferral:
Members with a home equity or home improvement loan that have been adversely impacted by the current situation can apply to have a loan modification and defer their payments by 90 days.

Please note that your skipped payments will be added to the end of your loan term and normal interest charges will continue to accumulate and may extend the loan maturity. Loans must have been open for at least 2 months with a minimum of one regular on-time payment made.
For members with Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) on their vehicle loan, skipping payments may reduce the amount of any potential claim; please refer to your GAP Policy for complete information. Other restrictions may apply.
