Banks in Northwest Arkansas are dedicated to serving our customers and supporting our communities. During this time of great uncertainty, we are united in a common goal of assisting customers impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus. We are actively monitoring the situation on the local and national level and remain a trusted resource for our customers.
Through the guidance of medical and governmental leadership for social distancing, many banks across the region have restricted lobby access. Fortunately, we are equipped with drive-through banking facilities, ATMs, telebanking and online and mobile banking platforms.
If you have been financially impacted by COVID-19, we may have customized solutions available. From individuals struggling with mortgage payments to small-business owners impacted by mandatory closures, we recommend working directly with your financial institution to tailor a personalized solution. Every situation is unique and there is no right answer for everyone.
Here are some strategies to keep in mind as you consider your options:
Keep the Communication Lines Open
Situations can change by the hour. Keeping your banker up to speed is vital.
Work with Your Banker on Strategic Decisions
Every situation takes on a different set of circumstances, both for you and your bank. Reach out to your personal banker and update them on your current status, changes and any pending decisions. There may be multiple options to consider as we navigate this critical time.
There are also many resources at the state and national level that may provide financial assistance for individuals and small businesses in need of support. Check with your local banker to identify a program that might work for you.
