Get ready for the $1,000 Whatever Loan!

Authored By: Katie Erdody on 9/30/2020

We know this year may have been more difficult than others, and it’s now more important than ever to have a partner you trust. We’re proud to be bringing back the $1,000 Whatever Loan with no credit score limit* beginning on November 2! 

Are you ready?

We want you to enjoy the benefits of the Whatever Loan as soon as possible.  Whether you’ve received the Whatever Loan in the past or you’re looking to apply for the first time, here’s a list of what you’ll need to have in place:

  • Direct Deposit of your net pay into an MFCU checking account

  • Most recent pay stub

This year is a little different than most, and our Whatever Loan process will look a little different as well. This year, we require that you schedule your appointment to apply for the Whatever Loan today!

If you are not preapproved but had the whatever loan last year and made all payments on time, can you still get $1500?
Reply From Members First Credit Union:

Thanks for your inquiry. Only members that have been preapproved for the Whatever Loan are able to get the $1,500 Whatever Loan. However, we invite you to apply for the $1,000 Whatever Loan, or one of our other lending options.

Hello! I received the Whatever Loan the last 2 years. If I get a letter in the mail telling me I am pre-approved for $1,500 this year do I still need to schedule an appointment and visit a branch? Or is this something I could do online / at the drive-thru?

-Thank you

I called today notifying that my direct deposit was going to change days and companies. Judy from the MFCU call center helped me tremendously. She offered to put on my account that I do not like confirming my account with my SS number. I have had numerous problems with this before. Additionally she recommend that I go to a branch and set up a password so I never have to deal with the SS number question.
My direct deposit had not hit my account yet. She offered to wait until tomorrow when the direct deposit hits to make sure the transfer is smooth and automated with this new timeframe and company. Shout out to Judy! Thank you so much. Helped me become aware of a solution that I did not know existed.
