Neighborhood Credit Union to Help Those Affected by Government Shutdown
Published January 16, 2019
As the government shutdown goes through its third week, many Americans are finding themselves missing paychecks and possibly not being able to make financial obligations.
Originally a postal credit union with deep roots in the federal worker community, Neighborhood Credit Union is working to aid those affected by the government shutdown by offering to defer a loan payment or waive certain fees to help make this time easier for those who need it.
Neighborhood CU is also extending assistance to the members of Dallas Federal Credit Union, which just recently merged into the Neighborhood CU system. Dallas FCU began as the regional federal credit union for Social Security Administration and Health and Human Service employees and still counts federal employees as a majority of their membership.
“Our mission is to build financial relationships.” said Chet Kimmell, President of Neighborhood Credit Union. “And as a credit union, we have more flexibility to help out during the hard times of that relationship.”
Neighborhood CU has encouraged members to stop by their local branch or call to discuss the different resources available during this challenging time.
“We have already been able to help those members who needed assistance after their missed paycheck.” said Mike Roark, Senior Vice President of Lending.
