Furlough Assistance

The following furlough relief options are available to eligible Transportation FCU members impacted by the partial government shutdown. Please check with your agency to determine if your pay will be affected. If you are a Transportation FCU member, employee, retiree, or qualified DOT/FAA federal contractor who will not be receiving a paycheck due to the government shutdown, you may be eligible. Membership eligibility and proof of furlough are required.

We will continue to monitor and make modifications to any of our furlough assistance programs to meet the needs of our members.

If you need to speak with us to discuss these or other available options, all of our branches and Member Contact Center are open regular business hours and our staff is ready to assist you.
