AFSCME member appreciates security of the Union Plus Mortgage Program

Jeanné Larson works for the state of Alaska helping people understand and navigate Medicare and health insurance, and is a longtime AFSCME Local 52 member.

Larson recently refinanced her home of 13 years with Wells Fargo through the Union Plus Mortgage Program.

“We were able to submit a lot of the documents Wells Fargo needed through their online portal,” she says. “It’s really amazing what technology can do now.”

With financing through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, the Union Plus Mortgage Program helps union members, their parents and children purchase or refinance their homes while also offering exclusive union member benefits, including an award from Wells Fargo after closing1 and hardship help from Union Plus.

“It was a pretty seamless transition from start to finish,” Larson says. “We couldn’t have been happier with the process and how everything moved along, and the award was an extra bonus after everything was finalized.”

The Union Plus Mortgage Assistance Program caught Larson’s eye – it provides interest-free loans and grants to eligible union members to help them make their mortgage payments in the event they become disabled, unemployed, locked out, or go on strike2.

“We’re all one catastrophe away from financial ruin,” Larson notes. “That was a big concern given everything that happened during the pandemic.”

Larson encourages fellow members to consider the Union Plus Mortgage Program.

“[The Union Plus Mortgage Program] has benefited my life and given me a lot of financial security,” she says. “We receive reminders in the mail about mortgage protection and the other benefits offered through AFSCME Advantage and Union Plus, and it always gives us peace of mind. It’s amazing the wide range of benefits available.”
