Nebraska AFGE member hits the jackpot with Union Plus Mortgage

Becky White, a pharmacist with the Veterans Administration in Lincoln, Nebraska, said she never usually wins anything. So when she received an email from Union Plus announcing she had won $1,000 in a Union Plus Mortgage Program sweepstakes, she says, "I couldn’t believe it."

Nebraska AFGE member hits the jackpot with Union Plus Mortgage


White, who is a member of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), acknowledges she also got lucky with her home loan through the Union Plus Mortgage Program a few years ago.

With financing available through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, the Union Plus Mortgage Program helps union members, their parents, and their children purchase or refinance their homes while also offering exclusive union member benefits.

When White and her husband, Kaleb, were in the market for a new home, she remembered reading about the Union Plus Mortgage Program and decided to check it out.

"We had found a house we really wanted, and we started looking at our different options," White recalls. "I noticed that there was a Union Plus Mortgage Program connected with Wells Fargo. They helped us get all set up, it was great. It went really smoothly; it was very straightforward."

One benefit of the Union Plus Mortgage Program is the security the program offers. The Union Plus Mortgage Assistance Program provides interest-free loans and grants from Union Plus when members are out of work due to a union-approved strike, lockout, involuntary unemployment, or disability.1

White said the sweepstakes money came at the right time. She and her husband are putting it toward school tuition for her younger son.

"It's a good blessing that wasn’t expected," she says.
