Assistance During the Government Shutdown



If you’re facing a financial hardship, we’re here to assist. For more than 128 years we’ve been helping our clients through challenges of all types—manmade and natural—and we’re here for our clients today who are impacted by the partial government shutdown. If you’ve been impacted by the partial government shutdown that began December 22, please reach out to us however it works best for you.

We’re ready to listen and work with you to find a solution that will help ease your financial burden during this time of uncertainly that’s no fault of your own. Here is a partial list of the solutions that may be available to you:

  1. Short term, no interest credit in amounts up to $10,000, is available (subject to credit approval). We know it’s vital for you to get a quick decision and expedited access to funds.
  2. If you have a consumer loan with us, payment deferrals may be possible. We are not applying generic criteria as we know every person’s situation is unique. You can count on us to sit down with you and review your options.
  3. If you have a payment due on your Banner Bank consumer or mortgage loan, an advance might be right for you. If approved for this solution, you will repay your advance once your payroll is reinstated. This is available to clients with a Banner checking account that is already set up with payroll deposit from your government employer.

For more details about how we may be able to assist you, please call or visit any member of your local branch team or your commercial banking relationship manager. Or, send us secure message in online banking or live chat with our online banking team. If you’re unsure how to get started, please call us at 800-272-9933 (7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday-Friday PST).
