Yes, we can help you with that, too

Of course, we offer great deposit accounts and low-cost loans. But you can also count on Great Erie for everything from money orders to notary services for legal documents. And don't forget to bring us all that spare change - after we cash it in, perhaps you can take advantage of our great deals on movie and theme park tickets.

Plan ahead and enjoy a little extra cash when you need it. To help stretch your budget, Great Erie offers qualified members the option to skip an installment loan payment on eligible loans.*

It's easy. Simply print the Skip-a-Pay Authorization Form here to get started and either mail, fax, or drop it off at our Orchard Park main office. If you have questions about completing the form, feel free to call us at 716.662.1311 and speak to either our lending department or member service. For each approved application there is a $30 fee to cover processing for each payment you're skipping, and payment can be made by check or by withdrawing from a Great Erie account.

Forms and payments must be received THREE or more business days before the due date of the month you're planning to skip. Interest will continue to accrue on your loan(s), and your final payment(s) will be due one month later than usual. 

PICK YOUR SKIP

Qualified accounts may utilize up to two skips per eligible loan each calendar year - choose any month!

*Home equity loans & real estate loans, share secured, revolving accounts, Residual based auto loans, and student loans do NOT qualify for this offer. Please see the authorization form for complete details. 

 

A check that comes with our guarantee

Our bank-issued checks may come in handy when you're making a major purchase or when a merchant or other business won't accept a personal check.

  • $7.50 per Certified Check

A secure way to make purchases and payments

Money orders are great options if you don't have a checking account, if you want to make a payment without revealing your banking information, or if you want to avoid sending cash in the mail.

  • Available at Great Erie locations during regular business hours.
  • There is a nominal $2 fee per money order.

Need to sign something? We can watch.

  • Notaries can also administer oaths and statutory declarations
  • This service is provided at no cost during regular business hours.

A new home for your nickels and dimes

Is there anyone without a jar full of coins in their kitchen or bedroom? At Great Erie, we provide members with a machine that can turn loose change into more usable cash.
