Credit card assistance
This means that for the next 60 months, your credit card interest rate will be fixed at 8%. This means that if you make your first payment on time, you will not be charged for going over your limit or for paying late. If you’re having trouble making your minimum monthly payment, the credit card company may be willing to work with you. They may lower your minimum payment, as long as it’s still equal to 1/60 of your current balance.
A temporary plan to reduce your interest rate. The credit card’s interest rate will be lowered to a variable interest rate of Prime +2% for a total of twelve months. This plan will also suspend both any fees for exceeding the limit and any late fees upon receipt of the first payment after the customer enters the plan. The minimum monthly payments will be set up to be equivalent to a fixed amount of 2% of the outstanding balance for a period of time of up to twelve (12) months. This means that if you have a balance of $1000, your minimum payment will be $20 per month.
The same type of loan modification and repayment plans described above for credit cards can also be used for car loans, boat loans, and RV loans. There are other programs that may help customers with these types of loans. If you are struggling to make payments on your loans from Fifth Third Bank, you can contact the bank for more information on assistance programs.
The last option available to struggling homeowners is to modify the terms of their mortgage. This will lower their monthly payments and make it more affordable over the long term. They may be willing to change the payment amount, length of the loan, or interest rate in order to help you keep your home.
