Bank offers shutdown assistance

HOULTON, Maine — Officials at Katahdin Trust recently announced special financial assistance to customers affected by the United States government shutdown.

“We realize the impact that the shutdown is having on our local community,” said Jon J. Prescott, Katahdin Trust president and CEO. “We want our customers to know that we are here for them and ready to help in any way we can.”

Customers who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the shutdown may contact their local branch to discuss their options until they begin receiving their regular government pay. The bank has already assisted a number of government employees by waiving fees, providing access to additional funds, and offering payment deferment on existing loans.

“For more than 100 years, Katahdin Trust has remained committed to doing what we can for our local communities and want to help during this difficult time,” said Prescott.
