Stockman Bank has implemented a plan to assist federal employees impacted by the government shutdown.

Bill Bickle, Stockman Bank Chief Credit Officer, says that until the shutdown ends, Stockman Bank is offering to defer any loan payments that are due.

Bickle says post shutdown, the bank will restructure debt for borrows as necessary. Stockman Bank says they will also work with commercial customers directly impacted by the shutdown on a case-by-case basis.

“Government shutdowns are very stressful for workers who still have bills to pay,” said Bill Bickle, Chief Credit Officer for Stockman Bank. “We are happy to make accommodations for impacted federal employees to help reduce stress and protect their credit.”

Stockman Bank is Montana’s largest, privately-held, family owned, community bank. Stockman has 34 locations throughout Montana and state-of-the-art online and mobile banking.
