When a storm threatened to sink her plans, Morgan found security. See how Natco helped float her through trouble.

Are you worried about your emergency fund running out? Learn what Morgan did…

Despite everything in 2020, Morgan felt lucky. She had been able to keep working, and having moved into a home she loved a few years earlier, didn’t even really mind staying at home. She was happy, making her finances work despite never really being able to get ahead and set aside some savings for an emergency fund.

Things were going well.

The Turning Point

Then a big storm changed things.

In a double-whammy of calamity, the sump pump in her basement failed and hail pummeled her roof and car.

After the storm, Morgan had a problem on her hands. Her insurance deductibles were going to be hard enough to cover. But when she found out the flooded basement wasn’t covered, she knew she needed to find a solution.

After getting some advice from a friend, she went to Natco Credit union and applied for a home equity line of credit.

The Solution

Morgan applied for a home equity line of credit (HELOC). Since she was able to draw on the credit line for only what she needed, she was smart about cleaning up the mess. She paid the deductible to get her car and roof fixed. She bought a new sump pump and found a good contractor to help her restore the basement.

With rates lower than a credit card, Morgan is paying off the balance faster, too.

Best of all, Morgan now knows that she has access to emergency funds if she ever has to use them again. And since she only pays back the principal and interest of what she uses, she can rest easier knowing it’s there.

Rates as low as:

8.50% APR

Natco home equity lines of credit include a 10 year draw period plus a 15 year repayment period.

Home equity lines of credit (HELOC) can be used to accomplish many goals. Here’s a couple more examples…
