FirstBank promotes program to help furloughed federal employees

Following the partial shutdown of the U.S. government and its possible consequences on the financial responsibilities of its employees in Puerto Rico, FirstBank has launched an assistance program with solutions for loan and credit card payments.

The
financial institution is urging its clients to call to discuss payment options for
personal and auto loans, and credit card products at 787-729-8035, and 787-282-1100
for mortgages.

“Last
year, given the situation we were experiencing after the passage of Hurricanes
Irma and María, we lent a hand to offer economic relief to customers who had
been affected, with a moratorium on their payments,” said Ginoris López-Lay, executive
vice president of Personal Banking and director of Strategic Management at
FirstBank.

“For
FirstBank, the well-being of our clients and their families comes first. We urge
our clients with personal loans, auto, credit cards and mortgages that call us
to help them with this situation they are living,” she said.
