MARQUETTE COUNTY — The government shutdown is affecting many lives and creating financial problems for many people, even in the U.P.
For any member that goes through Honor Credit Union, they will have the opportunity to receive loans that can help them during the government shutdown. Although to be qualified you must show supporting evidence that you are being affected by the shutdown.
“Well we really wanted to step up and do the right thing,” said Honor Credit Union Marquette Branch Manager, Adele Jacobson. “These are people who have committed to serving our communities and they work for the government. They have been put into a spot where they are losing income and we basically just want to offer them a little bit of relief. We want to be able to keep our local economy going because this would have a huge trickle-down effect. We want to help basically serving the ones who serve us.”
With these loans comes helpful support including benefits such as offering a 0% interest personal loan equal to the amount of your lost pay.
You will also not need to make any payments for 90 days.
If you are not a current member and are seeking relief you can go and sign up to become a member at either Honor Credit Union branch in Negaunee or Marquette.
