NYS DFS Guidance For State Chartered Banks Regarding Hurricanes Maria & Irma
  October 5, 2017

We are passing along the Guidance issued yesterday by the New York State Department of Financial Services regarding Hurricanes Maria and Irma and their impact on Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. DFS is encouraging state chartered banks to "consider all reasonable and prudent steps" to assist consumers and businesses affected by these devastating storms. 

We have attached for your information both the Department's Guidance, issued by Superintendent Vullo, and a press release from Governor Cuomo.

We hope this proves helpful, and please feel free to contact us with questions.
