Department Urges Help for Federal Employees During Government Shutdown

Harrisburg, PA - Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann has issued a letter asking banks, credit unions, and financial services companies to extend their support to federal employees affected by the partial government shutdown.

“Many hardworking federal employees who live and work in Pennsylvania are being impacted by this shutdown,” said Wiessmann. “As they cope with the challenge of temporarily delayed income, I am asking financial services organizations to consider ways they can be responsive to the hardships these employees are facing.”

The letter was directed to all Pennsylvania state-chartered, licensed, and registered financial services companies, and federally chartered banks and credit unions.
