Press Release (www.RedEnergyPR.com)



In the midst of the pandemic, Ent Credit Union continues to help members by approving more than $24 million in emergency loans, deferring more than $90 million in loan payments, eliminating and reducing fees and doubling business lines of credit. In addition, it has prioritized the safety and welfare of its employees from the beginning.

“We began to prepare for this scenario weeks before the social distancing and shelter-in-place mandates were instituted,” said Chad Graves, CEO. “We knew this would be a huge undertaking and worked to make sure the bulk of our staff could work safely from home, while still serving our members at the highest possible level - sometimes in new and creative ways.”

Ent rapidly implemented several COVID-19 Member Relief Programs that have resulted in:
• Deferred loan payments on business loans totaling $89 million
• More than 5,000 emergency loans totaling more than $24 million
• Increased lines of credit by more than $1.6 million for Colorado small businesses
• More than 30,000 monthly consumer loan payments skipped (including personal, auto and home equity line of credit)
• More than $1.7 million in deferred mortgage payments
• Fee relief for thousands of members with eliminated and waived fees Ent also worked diligently to protect employees when social distancing and stay-at-home mandates began, and provided them with the necessary resources to work remotely. Some extra measures Ent has taken include:
• Ordering new laptops and other equipment for people to work remotely
• Paying front-line staff interfacing with the public and call center staff at time and a half for the added risk they’re taking to serve members
• Paying staff while home sick, in quarantine or caring for young children without counting it against paid time off (PTO)
• Extra levels of sanitizing and cleaning measures

“Approximately 45% of Ent staff members are working remotely for the first time,” Graves added. “It shows their level of professionalism and passion that they’ve adapted so quickly to new processes serving members, as well as the dedication of our service center team members working at our drive-up locations and call center.”

In addition to physical safety, the mental well-being of staff is also a priority for Ent. Like many companies, regular check-ins on Zoom meetings are key, but it has also offered employees free mental health days that don’t count against their PTO. “We want to make sure our staff has the tools they need to not only take care of our members, but to also take care of themselves and their families,” explained Graves.

Following the Governor’s Executive Order on Saturday, the Secretary of State’s Office has set up a process that will enable Coloradans access to notary services without in-person contact.  

“Stopping the spread of COVID-19 while still providing the services Coloradans rely on has been our main focus over the last two weeks,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold.  “Remote notarization is the latest of these important services.”

On Saturday, Governor Polis issued an Executive Order that ordered the temporary suspension of the personal appearance requirement before notarial officers to perform notarizations due to the presence of coronavirus disease in Colorado.

Today, Secretary Griswold has issued emergency rules that outlines the procedures and requirements for remote notarization in Colorado during this state of emergency.

For the Notice of Temporary Adoption for the Colorado Notary Program Rules (8 CCR 1505-11), please click here. The notice includes the adopted rules, a statement of basis, and statement of justification. For an unofficial copy of the notary rules as adopted and effective 3/30/2020, please click here.

The Secretary of State’s Office has worked with stakeholders, including the Colorado Bar Association, on legislation on remote notary service over the last several years. The emergency remote notary process builds on this work.

Press Release

While the devastating financial impact of COVID-19 continues to escalate, Ent Credit Union responded by eliminating fees, reducing loan rates and launching emergency loans to help ease its members’ financial and emotional stress.

“Until further notice, we are suspending or drastically reducing fees,” said Chad Graves, Ent CEO. “This includes eliminating fees for excessive transactions for savings and money market accounts, minimum account balances, Skip-A-Pay and credit card usage for loan payments. Our overdraft/non-sufficient funds fees are now just $0.01. And we are also waiving early CD withdrawal fees to help members access their money for immediate needs.”

“We are also temporarily eliminating limits for the number of transfers from savings and money market accounts,” Graves said.

Ent wants members who are now without income and struggling to make their mortgage payment to reach out for help. Members won’t be charged late fees or have their credit impacted due to slow payment during this crisis. “They just need to talk to us. We’re here to help,” he said.

Included in the extensive list of ways Ent is taking action to help reduce financial strain for members are long- and short-term emergency loans of $1,500 to $10,000 with a 0.00% to 5.99% annual percentage rate. 

In order to help keep Colorado businesses strong, Ent is also offering emergency business loans, doubling its business line of credit limit (up to $50,000) and offering assistance programs to corporate banking members.

“I’ve said it before, but as this pandemic progresses, I feel it’s worth repeating. At times like these, I am especially thankful we are a not-for-profit financial institution. This allows us the flexibility to do what is in everyone’s best interest – rather than what’s best for the bottom line,” Graves said.
