CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE -
One area bank is lending a helping hand to local government employees who are not getting paid during the shutdown.
Furloughed employees who have a TD Bank account are able to take part in the TD Cares program.
The bank is allowing those account members to access with no fees, up to $1,000 of their funds not currently available, receive refunds on TD Bank late fees, and options for a mortgage assistance program.
"TD is doing this because we understand that our customers are concerned with the government shutdown how they're going to meet their financial obligations," said Scott Campbell, VP of TD Bank.
To take advantage of this offer, customers must present a government ID and furlough letter at any TD Bank location.
