Disaster Relief Program

Cobalt Credit Union has launched a comprehensive Disaster Relief Program in response to the recent devastation. This initiative introduces a range of new products and services to assist individuals affected by the disaster.

Central to the program is the introduction of the Disaster Relief Loan, offering a low interest rate starting at 6.49% APR*. This specialized loan is designed to provide immediate financial assistance to those impacted by the tornado.

Additionally, we are offering a Skip-a-Pay option, allowing eligible members to defer loan payments during this challenging time. This temporary relief measure aims to ease financial burdens and provide breathing room for affected individuals and families.

Cobalt Credit Union remains committed to supporting its members and the broader community during times of crisis. Through the Disaster Relief Program, we stand ready to assist tornado victims on their path to recovery and resilience.

Food Donation Drive

Join Cobalt Credit Union in making a difference with our Food Drive! From May 1st to May 10th, you can bring non-perishable food items to any of our traditional (non-retail) branch locations. Your generous donations will support local food banks, providing relief to those in need within our community.

Donate Blood

Did you know that approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells are required daily in the United States? Blood donors often feel a great sense of satisfaction after donating blood because helping others in need feels good. Additionally, a single blood donation can save up to three lives in just 60 minutes. You are invited to participate in a blood drive with the American Red Cross on May 8th at our Headquarters in Papillion, NE.
