Avadian Offers 0% APR Loans to Federal Government Employees During Shutdown

We are offering furloughed federal government employees loans at 0 percent APR to help pay the bills during the federal government shutdown.

“We know it’s hard to be without a paycheck, even when you think you will get paid eventually,” said Linda Cencula, President and CEO. “That’s why we have initiated this shutdown assistance loan program: to help employees of federal government agencies have access to the money they need to meet their financial obligations at no interest.”



Federal employees will be able to take advantage of 0 percent APR loans for 60 days plus an additional 30-day loan upon request if the shutdown is ongoing at that time.

Employees affected by the government shutdown wanting to take advantage of this loan offer should stop by their local Avadian branch, visit, or call 1.888.AVADIAN (1.888.282.3426).
