Members Impacted by the Government Shutdown

Market USA's mission is to serve the diverse financial needs of our members throughout their lifetimes. We understand that sometimes things happen that are out of their control and we have put the following plan in place to help during this difficult time.

If you have been impacted by the shutdown, we are offering a no-cost one month skip a pay. You will just need to provide a copy of the letter from your employer that states that you will not be paid during the shutdown. The loan due date will then be advanced by one month.

If you have protected your loan with Involuntary Unemployment debt protection through MEMBER'S CHOICE™ Borrower Security, you can also file a claim for assistance.

If you have any questions, please email Member Services or call 800-914-4268.

Have a Question? Send Us a Text!

Exciting news! You can now text Member Services at 301-586-3400 or Payment Solutions at 301-586-3401 for assistance. We will respond as soon as possible during normal business hours. For your security, do not send sensitive information through text, such as your account number or social security number. Instead you can use the Secure Message option in our new mobile app. Please note we will never ask for your account information through text. Message and data rates may apply.
