EUGENE, OR, - Northwest Community Credit Union is offering special plans and benefits for those affected by the partial government shutdown.
The partial government shutdown is now officially the longest running shutdown in US history.
Northwest Community Credit is doing their part to ease the affects on furloughed worker's wallet.
All fourteen branches across the state of Oregon are currently giving federal workers alternative ways to pay the bills while not receiving paychecks.
Teams at each branch will help federal employees on furlough to adjust plans including credit advances and loan payment deferrals.
It's not just workers themselves, but any family members that are affected by the shutdown can receive access these benefits.
“These are our neighbors, our friends, our family and the communities that we live and work in," said Northwest Community Credit Union Director of Branches, Jan Griffin. "As a credit union we're member owned and operated and we're a co-op and we just want to help the people in our communities."
Northwest Community Credit Union has offered flexible plans for those affected in a crisis before, most recently when a mill in Creswell burnt down a little over a year ago.
If you are a federal worker, simply show an employee ID badge at any branch for access to these new plans.
These benefits will be available for as long as the government shutdown continues.
