Bridge to Retirement Loan

The bridge to retirement loan was created especially for our federal government employees who are ready to retire.* The receipt of your first government-issued retirement check can take a while — sometimes as long as a 3-9 month process. Our loan can offer a financial solution for any expenses you may incur. Apply to see if we can help bridge the time span from your last day of work until the receipt of your first check.

To apply for a Bridge to Retirement loan, please contact our Member Service Contact Center at 800.374.2758 or visit one of our branch locations.
