Debt Collection Activity and Economic Impact Payment Funds
While the U.S. Department of Treasury continues to deny having the authority to protect EIP funds from debt collection activity, and Congress remains bogged down in partisan politics, we maintain that a uniformly applied federal solution is the best way to resolve the issue of debt collections against EIPs for all of our banks - a growing number of states have and will continue to take independent and unilateral action to prevent such activity. We continue to work with ABA staff to press decision makers in Washington for action on this issue and we will continue to monitor state efforts here and across the country. A ny issues you encounter relating to customer EIP funds being subject to debt collection activity, please contact WVBankers General Counsel/Director of Government Relations, Loren Allen.
WVBankers wants to hear from Banks on PPP Customer Response
As part of WVBankers  efforts to collect and share stories on the West Virginia banking industry's response to the coronavirus pandemic, we want to emphasize how our bankers continue to support their communities and serve their customers during this time. If you have a story, testimonial or photo you should like to submit from a customer that has been helped by the PPP, please contact aboyd@wvbankers.org.
ABA Seeks Info from Banks on Coronavirus Response
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread in the United States, with effects both on individuals' health and the U.S. economy, ABA is compiling a list of actions individual banks are taking to support their retail and business clients, protect their employees and support the economy. The running list will help ABA educate both the public and policymakers about how banks are helping customers affected by the crisis. Banks looking to share details on their initiatives can email CoronavirusResponse@aba.com or complete this survey. The list will be updated as more information is received from banks across the country.
Attention Members:  Nationwide our hospitals are suffering from a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our hardworking healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of this pandemic. Some organizations may have a supply of masks on hand as part of their Pandemic Response Plan - check your inventory and if you can, contact your local hospital to donate today.
