The Golden 1 Credit Union, which counts about 100,000 state workers among its members, on Friday said that it will offer "State Budget Payroll loans" to members with checking and direct deposit if their pay is withheld to zero or the federal minimum because of California's budget impasse.
For more information, contact The Golden 1's call center at (916) 732-2900 or (877) 465-3361. It's open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Schools Financial Credit Union also announced a "Budget Impasse Loan" program for members with direct deposit. "In addition, extensions of loan payments are available for existing members with a Schools loan whose loss of income has resulted from the budget impasse," according to the Sacramento-based cooperative's press release.
Call (916) 569-5400 or (800) 962-0990 for more details about those programs. Hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
