Everyone’s needs are different, but below are a few steps we’re taking to provide relief assistance. Please call and talk to a banker regarding your specific needs.

Pandemic Assistance Loans (PAL)

This program provides qualified consumers with up to $10,000, unsecured, at a low interest rate of 5.99% APR with no payment for 90 days.  Repayment will be for 36 months and loans will be made available based on the most current monthly income – even if an individual has been laid off or lost their job after March 15, 2020.

Annual percentage rate is accurate as of 04/01/2020. Payment for each $1,000 borrowed on a loan would be $30.43 monthly, if optional deferral is not accepted. Allows for first payment due date 90 days from origination. There will be a minor adjustment to fixed payment amount for borrowers taking advantage of deferred first payment due date, to fully amortize loan. Loan amount is capped at two-times applicant(s) gross monthly income. Must have a Denmark State Bank Checking account (new or existing). Loans subject to qualifications. Subject to change without notice.
