Financial Relief During the Coronavirus Crisis

The first known case of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the U.S. happened in January, 2020. Ever since, it has been spreading and the public has been taking precautions throughout March to slow the spread. School, daycare and non-essential business closures have caused a drastic change of the day-to-day life that Americans are used to.

In Ohio specifically, schools are to remain closed until May 1st and Ohio is currently under a Stay-at-Home Order through April 6th. Although necessary to promote social distancing, protect resources and save lives, these new rules are causing some Ohioans significant financial hardship. In these times of uncertainty, Bridge is here to help and committed to helping our members maintain financial stability.

We are offering the following assistance options to members:

 

  • Skip-a-Payment
  • Auto Loan Payment Assistance
  • Homeowner Payment Help
  • Credit Card Payment Assistance
  • Emergency Relief Loan
  • Credit Card Emergency Line of Credit Increase
  • Waiving Early Certificate Withdrawal Penalties
  • The Bridge App
