VyStar Credit Union Launches Everyday Heroes Mortgage Program


Jacksonville, Florida — VyStar Credit Union announced today the launch of its Everyday Heroes Mortgage Program, which provides a wide variety of benefits, including payment and closing options, to those who positively impact their community through their employment in civil service positions. The program is available to more than 100 professions, including law enforcement/first responders, medical/health care workers, educators and other essential workers.

“Everyday heroes are selfless individuals who lead by example to make their community a better place for everyone,” said VyStar Chief Lending Officer Jenny Vipperman. “This new program is another way all of us at VyStar show our deep appreciation for those who serve, protect and care for others.”

The Everyday Heroes Mortgage Program was specially created to do more for those who make unique and meaningful contributions to the places they call home. Those who apply and are eligible for the program can take advantage of affordable terms, including:

• 98% loan-to-value (LTV)

• Up to a $10,000 grant that can be used toward a down payment and/or closing costs (restrictions apply, based on availability and approval process)

• Savings of up to $5,000 in closing costs or choose a 0.25% rate discount

• No origination fees (1% savings on average)

• Discounts of up to $7,500 available from top national and local retailers
