Mortgage Payment Relief
Members who are experiencing a decline or loss in income due to COVID-19 may also have the option of delaying or lowering their mortgage payments for up to 12 months. If you have a mortgage loan through Mid-West and would like more information, email Mid-West Loan Servicing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to extremely heavy call volume, emailing is highly recommended for the quickest response. Be sure to include the following information in your email:
Name of primary borrower
Mid-West loan number
Contact telephone number
Request for COVID-19 related payment relief
If you make your mortgage payment to Advantis Credit Union directly and need assistance, please contact one of our Mortgage Loan Officers to discuss your options.
Transaction Limits on Savings Accounts Lifted
In response to the Federal Reserve’s decision to amend Regulation D requirements, Advantis will no longer restrict transactions to six per month on all savings accounts.
Access Your Accounts Online
Based on recent CDC guidance, Americans are being asked to avoid public spaces and stay home as much as possible. We encourage you to manage your accounts 100% online with Advantis. Simply log in to Online Banking or use our mobile app.
How to Bank Remotely
Check out our handy access guide to learn about other ways you can bank without visiting a branch. If you need assistance, reach out to us at 503-785-2528.
To help protect the health and safety of our employees and members, we have new protocols in place at all our branches.
When you arrive, you may be asked by a member of our team to wait outside briefly, as we are allowing a limited number of members to enter at a time.
Please maintain a distance of 6 feet from others at all times.
As of June 24, face coverings are required for anyone entering a branch, per the governor’s orders.
Please regularly visit advantiscu.org or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates, including any changes to our business hours or additional branch closures. Advantis will continue to closely monitor this situation and do all we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our members and employees.
The U.S. Federal Government is delivering a new round of economic impact payments to eligible Americans as part of an emergency coronavirus relief package. For up-to-date information about these direct cash payments, also referred to as stimulus checks, please visit IRS.gov.
If you’re expecting to receive a paper check in the mail (which will happen if the IRS doesn’t have your direct deposit information on file), make sure to follow these guidelines to ensure a smooth deposit of your stimulus check into your Advantis account.
Download our mobile app so you can deposit it without going to an ATM or branch. Checks deposited by 2 pm on business days (M-F) are processed same day. Checks deposited after 2 pm are processed the following business day.
Government checks require signatures of all payees, and are returned when not endorsed properly. To avoid delays in crediting your funds, make sure all parties listed on the front of the check sign the back of the check prior to depositing.
Write “For Advantis CU Mobile Deposit” on the check under your signature.
To deposit the check into an Advantis account, the name(s) on the account must match the name(s) on the check. If they do not, call us for more options.
