NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OneMain Financial, the leader in providing responsible access to credit to non-preferred customers, has implemented a Borrower Assistance Program to assist customers in Kentucky affected by recent flooding. The program, which took effect on August 2, will provide options for eligible customers, including the deferral of loan repayments. Support will be available through September 2 for customers in 13 Eastern Kentucky counties: Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Johnson, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike, and Wolfe.
OneMain will be hosting a community relief event on Saturday, August 13 at the company’s branch in Hazard, KY to distribute supplies. Additionally, OneMain team members are leading online and in-person fundraising campaigns to gather food and other necessities.
“The damage in Eastern Kentucky is devastating, and we are committed to helping our local communities through this difficult time,” said Tracey Woodyard, who runs OneMain’s office in London, KY. “As part of the state, we want to support our fellow Kentucky and important recovery efforts.
OneMain has 35 branches in Kentucky in addition to the company’s London location, employing approximately 500 people. The company serves nearly 54,000 customer accounts in the state.
In addition to possible deferment, the program ensures that eligible borrowers who have contacted a OneMain representative and been accepted into the program do not incur late fees and repayment charges.
