RBC Royal Bank customers who are affected by flooding might qualify for special financial support.
According to a news release issued on July 7, RBC customers may postpone residential mortgage and personal loan payments by up to two months. In addition, clients may be eligible to have their credit card minimum monthly payments set to $0 for up to four months.
Sandy Kwong, RBC Royal Bank marketing and communications co-ordinator, said customers who feel they could qualify for these services should contact their local branch or call the bank’s
customer support at 1-800-769-2511.
She said each customer’s situation will be considered to determine if they qualify.
As well, the bank has made a $30,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross in support of Canadians affected by extensive moisture and rising floodwaters in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Anyone interested in making donations to the Red Cross may do so at any RBC Royal Bank branch, earmarking the funds to either the "Manitoba Floods" or "Saskatchewan Flood" appeals.
