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 email@example.com. 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.

Downtown and Lloyd Branches Closed; ATM available with limited hours of operation We have temporarily closed our Downtown and Lloyd branches. The ATM is available with limited hours of operation at these locations. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. We’ll update you when we reopen in the future. All Other Branches Remain Open, but with New Safety Measures in Place 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.

Oregon Emergency Relief Funds Program
The Oregon Legislature’s Emergency Board recently allocated $35,000,000 in Coronavirus Relief Funds to provide $500 one-time payments to Oregonians who are still waiting for their unemployment claims to be resolved.
While the Oregon Emergency Relief Check Program has now ended because all funds are obligated, assistance may still be available. If you need rent or mortgage assistance, food or utility help, please call 2-1-1.

During these unprecedented times, we’re here to help.
We’re leveraging Grow: The Advantis Community Fund to address the immediate, critical needs of our communities’ most vulnerable.
To help address the far-reaching impacts of COVID-19, we’ve awarded $100,000 to five local nonprofit organizations to bolster their immediate response efforts.
