Banks Are Helping During the Government Shutdown

Banks are in the business of serving their customers, especially when unexpected hardship strikes. Even before the partial government shutdown took effect, banks across the country were prepared to help those impacted. 

The assistance offered to customers depending on their individual circumstances has included fee waivers, loan modifications, payment deadline extensions, payroll advances, low-rate and zero-rate loans as well as other accommodations. We applaud banks of all sizes for helping their customers during this challenging period, and encourage federal employees and others in need to reach out to their financial institutions to see what help may be available. Some of the banks offering assistance are listed below.
