Government Shutdown Relief

Government Shutdown Relief

California Coast is here to help

The partial government shutdown has been creating a financial hardship for many families in our community but California Coast Credit Union is here to help by offering emergency loans to those Cal Coast members who have been affected. If you’re not a member yet, you still may qualify for assistance.

Here’s how we can help:
  • We’re offering a 0% APR 90-day personal loan for the amount of your last net payroll up $5,000.1,2
  • Or you may choose a 90-day loan payment deferral for existing Cal Coast loan holders.3

To take advantage of this Government Shutdown Relief Loan, you’ll be required to provide confirmed payroll prior to the furlough. If you’re not currently a member, you’ll need to open a Checking account with direct deposit.

Please let us know how we can help by clicking the Contact Us button, visiting a branch, or by calling (877) 495-1600.

Your Fraud & Security Checklist

In a world of ever-changing technology, transaction methods, and ways of communication, it is more essential than ever to protect yourself from fraud and scams. The checklist below contains common situations taken from the FBI that might mean you are at risk. If any of the following scenarios seem familiar, please contact a California Coast Credit Union representative immediately.

Protecting yourself from fraud:

Have you responded to any emails asking for you to provide information, confirm, or update your account?

Are you the “winner” of a lottery that you did not enter?

Is someone instructing you to wire or send money to a large city or different country?

Have you been asked to pay in order to receive a deposit from another country?

Are you getting paid for facilitating money transfers with your account?

Protecting yourself from check scams:

Are you receiving a check for an online purchase?

Is the amount of the check for more than the price the item was sold for?

Will the check be shipped to you through an overnight shipping service?

Can you verify the identity of the person sending the check, or have you only met over email?

Is the check drawn on a different account or type of account than what the buyer would be expected to use?

If you have answered “yes” to any of the questions above, and feel you are at risk, please call us at (855) 631-2496 or toll free at (877) 495-1600.

Great branch and customer service at this location. I preferred sticking with this branch instead of joining Navy Fed or USAA after joining the military. I've never had a problem here.
