Local Credit Unions Help Federal Employees Working Without Pay


Three weeks in and the government gridlock is now tied as the longest in history.

Many workers are leaving work Friday with a paycheck, but thousands of federal employees are still without one.

The UARK Federal Credit Union in Fayetteville said they are now offering assistance to locals who are furloughed and seeking help. 

“If you are a federal employee, just contact the credit union. We’re waving late fees for federal employees and we’re offering low-rate fixed options to help you get a little extra money to get through,” said UARK Federal Credit Union Mortgage Loan Officer, Beth Kvamso.

Other credit unions in the area said they are continuing to monitor the shutdown and will help any federal workers looking for help managing their finances.
