Financial Center First CU providing assistance to government and military employees during government shutdown

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (January 3, 2019) — Financial Center First Credit Union is offering financial counseling and assistance to its members and other government employees whose payroll may be affected by the current government shutdown.

“If your pay is disrupted by this shutdown, we want to help ensure that your life isn’t,” says Financial Center’s Chief Operations Officer, Sven Leander. “Whether you are a current Financial Center member or not, we have solutions to help you.”

Financial Center members with government direct deposit have several options including potential eligibility for a 0% interest loan for 60 days.  Non-members with government direct deposit, who are within Financial Center’s field of membership (greater-Indianapolis), are eligible for a furlough loan.

Financial Center has been nationally recognized for its adult financial literacy program and always recommends a credit review with one of its Certified Credit Union Financial Counselors prior to making any decisions about taking on debt.
