Government Shutdown Assistance

If you're affected by the shutdown, we're here to help.

Shutdown Assistance Loan*

This is a short-term loan with no fees or interest to help eligible Federal Government employees cover personal expenses due to delayed paychecks during the shutdown.

You may borrow from $1,000 to $5,000 per person for up to 60 days at 0% interest. This is a single-pay loan, which means there are no payments until the final due date when the full balance of the loan will be due.
