BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The following was released by Avadian Credit Union:
Avadian Credit Union is offering furloughed federal government employees loans at 0 percent APR to help pay the bills during the federal government shutdown.
“We know it’s hard to be without a paycheck, even when you think you will get paid eventually,” said Linda Cencula, President and CEO. “That’s why we have initiated this shutdown assistance loan program: to help employees of federal government agencies have access to the money they need to meet their financial obligations at no interest.”
Federal employees will be able to take advantage of 0 percent APR loans for 60 days plus an additional 30-day loan upon request if the shutdown is ongoing at that time.
