As a community bank, Starion Bank is committed to helping its neighbors in times of trouble and one way the bank can do that is by deferring consumer loan payments for federal employees.

Recognizing that the partial government shutdown may be impacting people’s ability to make loan payments, Starion Bank is allowing payments on existing consumer loans to be deferred for the first quarter of 2019.

“We understand that some of our customers may be under financial pressure from the partial government shutdown and we want to help them feel a little more secure in their finances,” said Arnie Strebe, Starion Bank president. “It is our hope that this deferment option will help ease the burdens of federal workers during this stressful time.”

Federal employees who are interested in the program can talk to a Starion banker by calling 888-258-6050 or visiting www.starionbank.com/defer for more detailed information.
