Coast Guard families are going without paychecks during the government shutdown. In the past, military banks would step in and honor expected paychecks - that isn’t happening this time.

USAA is one of the largest military-serving banks. During past shutdowns, USAA would offer zero interest loans in place of expected paychecks for military members. Instead, USAA is telling Coast Guard families they should apply for low interest personal loans that require high credit scores. Many Coast Guard families are unable to get these loans, even with great credit in the 700-750 range. Meanwhile, Navy Federal is offering Coast Guard members interest free loans that coincide with expected paychecks. Coast Guard members shouldn’t be singled out. Tell USAA to stand up for all service members and honor shutdown paychecks.

In past shutdowns, all branches of the military would be affected. But unlike other branches of the military, the Coast Guard falls under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Homeland Security is not being funded during the shutdown. Servicemembers shouldn’t have to choose between paying their bills and putting food on their tables. Tell USAA to honor expected Coast Guard paychecks during the shutdown.

No one knows how long the shutdown will last. Coast Guard families may have to go without paychecks for months. Tell USAA to honor expected paychecks and help Coast Guard families during the shutdown.
