Big Kitchen. New Pool. It’s Up to You!

Take your house for a spin with a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) from Interra Credit Union. Is it time for a new car, a college education, maybe a new kitchen or a new pool, a great vacation or to refinance higher-rate debt. A HELOC from Interra credit union can help make it happen!

A special promotion is coming for members who already have a HELOC, and for members who open a new HELOC at Interra by July 26, 2019. The new promotion starts August 1, 2019.

• You’ll get a special low rate on all advances you make between August 1 and November 30, 2019, with that great rate in effect until December 31, 2020.
   Contact Interra for the rate and other details.
• Then, beginning January 1, 2021, the amount remaining on the advance(s) made during the promotional period will go back to your regular HELOC rate.

You’re in charge! Use the money for almost any purpose – so many possibilities it could make your head spin! 

Your dreams are waiting. Look to the trusted loan professionals at Interra to help you every step of the way.

Save Big with Low Mortgage Rates!

Great news! Mortgage loan rates are once again at near historic low levels. That means now may be the best time for you to make a move.

Shorten the term. 

You may be able to refinance to a lower-term, lower-rate mortgage with little or no impact on your monthly payment.

Lower your rate. 

It doesn’t take much to make a big difference, both in your monthly payment and in total interest dollars.

      We’ll See You At the Fair!

      County fairs are important in our communities, including the Elkhart County 4H Fair. Again this year, Interra Credit Union is the grandstand Jumbotron sponsor for the concert series.

      You could have a chance to win cash and coupons in the Money Machine! We’ll be set up before the five concerts, Friday, July 19; Saturday, July 20; Monday, July 22, Tuesday, July 23; and Wednesday, July 24; all beginning at 6:00 pm. Look for Interra’s tent, our mascot truck, Louie, and the money machine, just east of the Dairy Bar II.

      There’s more! You could win one of two pairs of front row track seats that Interra will give before each of the five concerts. The contest will be in a text-to-win format. Watch the Jumbotron on the stage before each concert, until the winning announcement just prior to show time.

      Be a part of it all! We’ll see you at the fair!

      Withholding Notice (form 2317)

      Payments from your IRA are subject to federal income tax withholding, unless you elect no withholding. 

      You may change your withholding election at any time prior to receipt of a payment. To change your withholding election, complete the appropriate form provided by your credit union. 

      Withholding from IRA payments, when combined with other withholding, MAY relieve you from payment of estimated income taxes. However, your withholding election does not affect the amount of income tax you pay.

      You may incur penalties under the estimated tax rules if your withholding and estimated tax payments are insufficient.

      NOTICE: Changes on Holds

      Effective September 1, 2019, the 24-hour everyday debit card transaction period will change from 24 hours to 72 hours.
