Government Furlough Assistance
As the government furlough continues on, becoming the longest gap in American funding ever, Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union has stepped up to provide much-needed relief to those affected.
For members who are facing financial difficulties and worries as a result of this government shutdown, Meridian Trust is offering a place to go for help.
Assistance comes in the form of a variety of options. These include 0% loans; $75 deposited into members’ checking account for each missed payroll (two per month); assistance to members in paying their home heating bills; the waiving of early withdrawal fees on CDs for full or partial withdrawals of funds; the ability to skip loan payments; interest-only payments on loans; and other financial assistance.
