Bank Fees Waived Due To Hurricane Sandy
Both Chase and Citibank are giving their customers a break by waiving fees for those who may find themselves along the path of Hurricane Sandy. Chase customers were informed on Sunday that select fees are waived through Wednesday, October 31 – allowing you to keep your account up-to-date until the end of business day Thursday.
What Fees Are Waived?
Waived fees include overdraft, ATM and/or late fees for all customers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. More so, Citibank is also waiving fees for New York City residents who use another bank’s ATM. This will allow many customers to make deposits and withdraw cash without getting charged an extra fee.
Hurricane Sandy To Make Landfall
Hurricane Sandy, a category 1 hurricane, is currently expected to hit the Northeast part of the United States with great impact from Monday night to Tuesday. Power outages due to strong winds and flooding rainfall may affect parts of New York City, New Jersey and other nearby areas.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has advised those in lower Manhattan and Queens to evacuate since this is considered to be a “serious and dangerous storm.” Federal offices in Washington D.C. are closed on Monday, October 29, as well as public transportation until further notice.
Stay Safe, Stay Home
For Chase and Citibank customers who need to make bank deposits or cash ATM withdrawals early this week, it is strongly recommended to do so as soon as possible. Because up until Wednesday, it is advised that it will be best to remain indoors.
