Our Coronavirus Response

Options for KeyBank clients impacted by the coronavirus.

If the coronavirus pandemic has caused you to lose your job or a significant amount of your income, or if you’ve had to stop working because of your own sickness or because you’re caring for a sick family member, you may be eligible for financial hardship assistance.

Payment Deferrals

Generally, a deferral extends your payment due date, giving you more time before your payment is due. If you are affected by the coronavirus, you can request a deferral for a variety of KeyBank products including mortgages, home equity loans and lines, auto loans, lines of credit and credit cards.

To learn more and request your deferral, fill out the appropriate online form for each type of assistance you need.

PLEASE NOTE: if you wish to make a deferral request on more than one option above, separate requests for each product type must be made.

Temporary Assistance Loan

Our 3.00% APR, shorter term, no collateral loan is easy to apply for and quickly funded—you could have your money as soon as the same day.1 Available to existing clients only.2 Apply by May 29, 2020. To learn more and apply, schedule an appointment at your local branch.

Repossessions and Foreclosures and Evictions

Please note that KeyBank, in compliance with all laws and regulations, may resume repossessions, residential property foreclosures or evictions without notice.

Non-COVID-19-Related Assistance

Assistance with financial hardships not due to the coronavirus.

Unemployment, decrease of income, rising expenses, declining property value, divorce, injury or illness are all considered hardships. If you’re experiencing a hardship that makes it difficult for you to pay your bills, there may be help.3

Home Equity or Mortgage

To request any of the following options, use the form Request for Borrower Assistance.

Repayment Plan

If you are behind on your payments, you may qualify for a repayment plan that allows you to make your regularly scheduled loan payments, plus pay off a portion of the past-due amounts over time.

Reage

A reage returns a delinquent account to a current status without immediately collecting the past due payments that are contractually due. If you are currently past due on your payments, and are able to make your regular payments going forward, this option may be right for you.

Modification

If you are unable to afford your current monthly minimum payment, but could pay a reduced amount each month, a loan modification may be right for you.

Forbearance

If you are experiencing a temporary hardship, you may be eligible for forbearance. A forbearance is when the lender agrees to temporarily suspend or reduce a number of your loan payments to allow time to get your finances back on track in order to pay off the past-due amounts.

Extension

If you are experiencing a temporary hardship, you may be eligible for an extension. An extension is where the lender agrees to suspend a number of your loan payments for a period of time and add those payments to the back end of your loan – extending the length of your loan term. To be considered for an extension, you must be able to show that you have the ability to make future payments.

Short Sale

If you want to sell your house but it’s worth less than the amount remaining on the combined mortgage and home equity loan/line balance, a short sale may allow you to sell your house for less than the balance owed. You may be responsible for paying the difference between what the bank received in the short sale and what you owed.

Deed in Lieu

If you are not able to sell your house, you can choose to voluntarily transfer the ownership of your property to the owner of your mortgage in exchange for a release from your mortgage loan and payments. Options are available to help you leave the home immediately. You may be responsible for paying the difference between what the bank received in the eventual sale of the property and what you owed.

Boat, Auto or RV

Extension

If you are experiencing a temporary hardship, you may be eligible for an extension. An extension is where the lender agrees to suspend a number of your loan payments for a period of time and add those payments to the back end of your loan – extending the length of your loan term. To be considered for an extension, you must be able to show that you have the ability to make future payments. Please gather your financial information and contact us to discuss your situation.

Boat Short Sale

If you want to sell your boat but it’s worth less than the amount remaining on the loan balance, a short sale may allow you to sell it for less than the balance owed. You may be responsible for paying the difference between what the bank received in the short sale and what you owed.

To request this option, use the form Request for Short Sale.

Credit Card and Lines of Credit

Reage

A reage returns a delinquent account to a current status without immediately collecting the past due payments that are contractually due. If you are currently past due on your payments and are able to make your regular payments going forward, this option may be right for you.

Long-Term Hardship

If you are unable to afford your current monthly minimum payment or are currently past due on your payments, but could pay a reduced amount each month, a long-term hardship plan may be right for you. To request this option or discuss additional Borrower Assistance programs, please contact us at 1-866-947-2610 (clients using a TDD/TTY device: 1-800-539-8336).

Student Loans
