Virginia Credit Union has selected Secure Settlements Inc. (SSI) to handle independent risk evaluation, rating, monitoring and reporting of settlement agents who wish to close VACU members’ mortgage loans. The credit union is now utilizing the SSI Closing Guard tool to evaluate settlement agents who close mortgage loans with VACU. A team led by Jeff Coward, Virginia Credit Union vice president of mortgage lending, selected SSI and began using the new tool in May 2015.

“We are pleased to work together with Virginia Credit Union in managing these critical vendor issues to provide the highest level of scrutiny for consumer protection and overall loan quality assurance,” said SSI President Andew Liput.

A member-owned financial cooperative serving more than 237,000 members, Virginia Credit Union provides a variety of affordable banking services, loans, mortgages, and free financial education resources. Virginia Credit Union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and is an equal housing opportunity lender.
