Relief is available for Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union customers feeling the financial pinch of the COVID-19 crisis.
On Monday, April 6, the Shuswap-based financial institution announced the launch of its Payment Relief program, created, in the words of SASCU CEO Barry Delaney, to help families and businesses who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the virus.
““We strive to be our members’ life long financial partner — which is why, in challenging times such as these, we continue to be there for them,” commented Delaney in a related SASCU release.
The program include mortgage deferral options for up to six months, as well as increased flexibility for existing or new lines of credit to meet cash-flow demands of personal and business members.
“By removing the ‘business-as-usual’ requirements of applications and signatures, we were able to accelerate a remedy for our members’ financial distress,” commented SASCU vice-president of operations and strategy Ken Hawrys.
SASCU members interested in the payment relief program are asked to call 250-832-8011.
