Bank offering help during shutdown

PROVIDENCE — With an estimated 800,000 federal employees facing a potential loss of income due to the federal government shutdown, Citizens Bank has announced a program to assist its customers who work for the federal government and may be directly impacted by the shutdown. The program will run from Tuesday, Oct. 15 through Nov. 4, or the end of the government shutdown, whichever comes first.

Eligible customers are encouraged to contact a Citizens Bank representative through the 24/7 contact center at 800-922-9999 or visit a branch location to request assistance including rebates on certain checking account, savings account and credit card fees, easy access to CDs without incurring a fee, and assistance with loan payments.

“We routinely work with customers to help them manage financial challenges and we also are committed to supporting local communities,” said Brad Conner, vice chairman for consumer banking at RBS Citizens Financial Group. “Because everyone’s situation is different, we encourage customers to call or visit us so that we can design an assistance package that best meets their needs.”
