At NEFCU, we respect all of the work our military members do for our communities, and we encourage them to consider us for a Veterans Assistance (VA) Loan for purchasing a primary residence.  

What is a VA Loan?

A VA Loan is a mortgage loan that is guaranteed by the US Department of Veterans Affairs to current and former miliary service members who qualify. The program is for veterans, members currently enlisted, reserve members, and some of the surviving spouses of deceased, missing, and POW service members.

The purpose of the program is to offer affordable home loans to veterans with no down payment requirement. The Department of Veterans Affairs establishes the guidelines for lenders to abide by for applicant qualification. The rules also determine which financial institutions may and may not offer VA Loans.
