Topic: Federal Government Shutdown: What are Banks Doing?
Start time: 1:18

An American Bankers Association (“ABA”) webpage highlights the efforts of American banks to support individuals and their families experiencing hardships from the government shutdown. The ABA webpage states that banks are in the business of serving their customers, especially when unexpected hardship strikes. Some of the banks’ websites instruct individuals to contact the bank if they are experiencing financial hardship due to the shutdown while others offer specific assistance such as loan modifications. Over one hundred banks are listed.

Watch for episode 38 of This Month in Banking to be released on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. We release a full episode plus a lite episode on the last Wednesday of every month.
