General tipsFinancial concernsIf your income is disrupted, take a deep breath. There is help for you. It is a good idea to call each of your bill providers now and ask for a payment suspension. (Say your income is disrupted due to coronavirus. Some customer service agents may not be allowed to help until you say "coronavirus"). Even lenders who are not legally required to do so might delay due dates, but you need to call. Call early (not the day the bill is due) because there will probably be longer hold times. Keep as much money in your account as possible for medical supplies, food, etc.

General tipsPrivacy concernsBe careful of calls, emails, posts that may be taking advantage of people in a vulnerable situation. Do not give out account info or personal details via email. Do not give this information to anyone who calls you. When calling a trusted source, you may need to provide some personal details - but be careful. If you feel pressured to make a decision right away, step away and look into whether this is a scam. Watch out for unknown entities selling face masks, etc.; make sure they are reputable.

Moratoriums on payments - housingmortgages12-month mortgage forebearance for loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (don't need to pay, no evictions, applies to most mortgages). 60-day moratorium for other federal lenders (such as USDA). This applies to mortgage, not rent. Some cities have issued moratoriums on renter evictions, but not Hawai'i or Maui County. Still, residents can call their landlord to inform them of mortgage moratoriums and request relief. To take advantage of this, call and set up arrangements with your lender. Renters can also seek financial support through other services listed here. DHHL offering 6-month deferrals for their direct loans (1200 loans in the Hawai'i).

Stimulus check - federal coronavirus stimulus bill
cash payment$1200 per adult, for those earning less than $75K/year. (a couple filing jointly can earn up to $150k/year. For those who have already filed 2018 and 2019 taxes and whose information is up to date and accurate, there's no need to do anything at all. If the government has your direct deposit info from past taxes or social security payments, the payment may come through within 3 weeks of 3/27/20. Otherwise, will take longer.

Many with lower incomes do not usually file taxes - these people need to file a form to get their stimulus check. If you have moved, you need to update the IRS, and it may take a while to get your check.

(The amount paid goes down by $5 for every $100 over $75K earned, so after $99K/year for individuals and $198K/year for couples there is no payment)
