COVID-19 Resource Center

Please let us know how we can help you

To help you, your family and the small businesses in our community, we have been working to add more ways to give you peace of mind during these times:

Loan assistance

If you need help with your monthly loan payment, please reach out to discuss your specific situation at 303-321-4209. We have multiple options that can be tailored to your specific needs.

Most fees are permanently eliminated

Most fees were waived for all members beginning in March 2020 to assist with the financial hardships of the pandemic and most of those fees have now been permanently eliminated.

  • Discontinued fees - These fees were permanently eliminated: overdraft fees, non-sufficient funds fees, Visa® debit card foreign transaction fees, as well as fees for ATMs outside the CO-OP Network, temporary checks, returned mail, express delivery, account research/reconciliation, printed copies/account histories, deposits of foreign items, third party returned deposit items, ATM access cards, Online Banking external transfers to another financial institution, and Regulation D withdrawal limits on savings, Money Market, and Certificate accounts.

  • Reinstated fees - Effective February 1, 2022, the Interest spending/checking fee of $10 if the monthly average end-of-day balance is below $2,500 is reinstated, as well as all business account fees (savings, Money Market and spending/checking accounts) and minimum balance fees on all business shares. The 2% fee for credit card cash advances is also reinstated.

We hope that the fee waivers over the last two years, combined with the elimination and reduction of many of those fees, has helped you, your family, and the small businesses in our community gain greater peace of mind during the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, if you need assistance, please visit any branch or call us at 303-321-4209.

Help with your mortgage

If you expect COVID-19 to impact you for a while, you may want to consider an initial relief option of a forbearance, which is a temporary stoppage of your mortgage payments for three months. If you need additional assistance after that time, we will work with you to determine the best options to resume payments. During the months of a forbearance plan, late fees are waived and missed payments are not reported to credit bureaus. The easiest way to start the forbearance process is to go directly to https://loansolutioncenter.com or call our mortgage service department directly at 1-866-657-0139.

Emergency line of credit or unsecured term loan for business members

If you have a business account at Westerra and need short-term working capital or interest relief, we may be able to assist with a line of credit. If your business does not have collateral available for a loan, ask about an unsecured term loan based upon the cash flow of your business. This loan is an excellent option for consolidating business debt and short-term financing. Ask about loan amounts from $500 to $50,000. Additional resources are available at SBA.Gov.

Get cash or make deposits

To make it easier to access cash, the daily limit for ATM cash withdrawals has been increased to $1,010. You can also deposit cash and checks through our CO-OP Network ATMs and in our branch Night Drop Boxes. Download the Westerra Mobile Banking App and you can deposit checks by taking a picture with your phone.

Partnering with our schools and our community

Contributions to school district foundations and other non-profits.

Eight Denver teachers started our credit union in the midst of the Great Depression. They pooled their funds and made loans to each other to strengthen families and our community during that crisis. Today we carry that mission forward to help families and communities through the financial hardship of this COVID-19 crisis. We have made donations to the Foundations for Denver Public Schools, Douglas County Schools, Jeffco Schools, Mapleton Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools, as well as area food banks and other non-profits in our community.

School grants awarded

Westerra has awarded 98 grants for the 2020-2021 school year for extremely valuable and worthwhile causes. We are honored to support our schools in helping students work toward academic and personal success. Click here to see the schools that received grants and how they will use them.

Support for small locally owned businesses

If you follow Westerra on social media, you likely saw our Yes Denver, We’re Open campaign, which helped bring awareness — and business — to the small locally owned businesses that had remained open to serve our community. Westerra put its own marketing dollars behind boosting the Facebook posts in the targeted areas where the businesses are located. Watch for Phase Two coming soon to help support education and non-profits that are making a difference in our community.
