As the U.S. government shutdown entered its 21st day on Friday, January 11, hundreds of thousands of government workers did not receive their expected paycheck. For some, that means bills are piling up and they aren’t able to make their payments.
To help alleviate some of the stress that comes along with a missed or late payment, Discover is stepping up to offer assistance. For our customers who have been furloughed or are working without pay, we are offering them support by allowing them to skip a payment or waiving late charges and interest fees on late payments due to the impact of the shutdown.
If you know a government employee who has been impacted by the shutdown, they can call about assistance any time at 1-800-DISCOVER. Our 100% U.S.-based customer service team is always ready.
