US agencies urge creditors to be flexible with govt workers

AFP, Washington

US banking regulators yesterday urged creditors to be flexible with government workers affected by the shutdown who may need more time to pay mortgages and credit cards.

About 800,000 federal workers have been furloughed without pay for three weeks in what soon will be the longest US government shutdown ever.

Five federal financial and state regulators encouraged institutions to work with consumers affected by the shutdown by modifying loans or extending new credit.

“While the effects of the federal government shutdown on individuals should be temporary, affected borrowers may face a temporary hardship in making payments on debts such as mortgages, student loans, car loans, business loans, or credit cards,” the agencies in a joint statement.
