Covid-19 Resources

AVAILABLE RESOURCES

You may not know this, but there are a lot of resources available to us by the companies we use every day. Here are a few resource ideas to help you in the midst of this crisis. With these resources, be prepared to show that the COVID-19 Coronavirus has adversely affected you financially.

1. Credit cards: Did you know that you can call your credit card company and ask them to postpone your payments for at least one month. Many CC companies will do this without increased interest, with no late fee, and without reporting to credit agencies. Contact you CC company and see what help is available to you.
2. Mortgage: Some mortgage companies will allow people to forebear payment. If your payment is actually “late” there may be even more options available to you. Contact you mortgage company to see how they can help.
3. Car Loans: Most car loans are through banks or the car companies themselves. Did you know that in most cases, you can postpone making car payments for 3 months if you can cite the financial effects from the Covid-19. You can do this for each car you own.
4. Personal Loans: This depends on your bank: but most banks and credit unions will defer loan payments for up to 30 days without penalty. Contact you bank and see what is available to you.
Here are some other resources that may be able to help as well.
