Covid-19 has an impact on everyone's lives and also on a lot of people's economy. Financially, some people have lost jobs or experienced a sudden drop in income. For this reason, we decided to share with you some things to take into account during this pandemic.
First of all, you should be aware that the government is giving help and, perhaps, you meet the requirements for some stimulus checks. Federal, state and local governments have taken a number of steps to address the financial impact of the coronavirus. For example, the Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Support.
Check with your creditors to see if they have announced relief policies or, if not, what accommodations they may be able to make if you have been impacted by the coronavirus. More than 100 cable, wireless and phone companies have signed on to the Federal Communications Commission’s “Keep Americans Connected” pledge to waive late fees for customers affected by the impacts of the coronavirus.
Policies vary around the country, but many major gas and electric companies have temporarily agreed not to turn off service to customers unable to pay. If you’re struggling to make rent payments, contact your landlord directly. The new federal stimulus law offers some protections from evictions if the mortgage is federally backed and the property owner accepts any type of forbearance. Many cities and states have halted evictions due to the impacts of the coronavirus.
You can also explore your options for emergency cash. If you find yourself short on the cash you need to cover day-to-day expenses, consider some borrowing options. You can apply for a personal loan, extent your credit card limit or you can tap into using a home-equity line of credit. There are multiple options you just need to choose the one that fits you better.
