We understand that the Government Shutdown will affect some of our members, and we are committed to helping you through this tough time.

Will you miss a paycheck?

Chocolate Bayou members who miss a paycheck(s) due to the Government Shutdown will qualify for a 0% interest personal loan in the amount of the missed paycheck(s) to help them through the shutdown.
