cPort Credit Union to Provide Government Shutdown Assistance to Members

By | Member Assistance

Update 7/5/17: cPort has concluded our shutdown assistance offering with the passing of the state budget and reopening of state government.

cPort Credit Union wishes to assist members who may be directly affected by the potential government shutdown. Affected members may skip a month’s payment on a loan without paying the $25 skip-a-pay fee. cPort is also offering an interest-free loan for the amount of one month’s missed pay.

Formerly the Government Employees Credit Union of Maine, cPort’s core membership includes federal employees and active duty members of the military. “We want to support our members during this time of uncertainty,” says cPort’s President and CEO Gene Ardito. “We hope that with these options, we can help our members and their families through what can be a very challenging situation.”

Proof of state employment is required to apply for shutdown assistance. State employees who open new memberships at cPort are eligible for assistance. To apply, members can call 1-800-464-0253 or stop into one of our branches.
