Citi offers payment relief
Citi announced it will offer a payment holiday to credit cardholders of Citibank and Citibank Savings, as well as Citibank Savings personal loan customers. Clients who were affected by the flooding brought about by the southwest monsoon may ask for a relief of 30 days to settle their outstanding balances. To avail, impacted clients are advised to call the 24-hour CitiPhone at 995-9999. Qualified cardholders and personal loan customers will be entitled to an extra 30 days to settle their outstanding balance from their most recent payment due date. Late payment charges will be waived, but interest charges will accrue on the balance. Citi country officer Sanjiv Vohra explained that their move is intended to ensure continued access to credit for their impacted customers. “This is one way we can provide assistance to our customers, following the devastation wrought by southwest monsoon. We have been monitoring closely the situation and understand that some will need time to recover and rebuild. This program will give them time to settle their card bill or loan account as well as enjoy continued access to credit, which should be very useful to them in their current situation.” This is the second time for Citi in the Philippines to declare a payment holiday. The first time was during Typhoon “Ondoy,” when Metro Manila was also brought to a standstill, with many areas inundated by floods and homes destroyed. At that time, Citi’s payment holiday was extended to targeted areas hardest hit by Ondoy. For more information, log on to www.citibank.com.ph.
