WYOMISSING, PA / ACCESSWIRE / January 15, 2019 / Customers Bank today announced that it will offer a 60-day deferment on principal and interest payments on consumer loans for borrowers who can demonstrate lost income due to the federal government partial shutdown. Late charges for deferred payments would be waived. "Following prudent lending practices, Customers Bank will work with borrowers who are experiencing hardships as a result of the shutdown," said Richard A. Ehst, President & COO of Customers Bank.
In a statement the bank said, all changes to payment schedules will be made on a case-by-case basis. Escrow would still be due to ensure that payments of property taxes and insurance are funded and made on a timely basis. Customers Bank might extend the relief program by additional 30-day increments, if the shutdown continues.
Borrowers who would like to request the deferment are encouraged to call Customers Bank at (610) 482-4283 or send an email to [email protected]. Bank team members will work with borrowers to meet their needs.
