1. A number of banks are offering payment deferrals on credit cards, mortgages, etc. They don't want

your house, car, etc. So, I'm sure they aren't doing it altruistically. They'd rather defer payments a few months to avoid taking expensive actions and perhaps driving people into bankruptcy.

Here is what one large bank was doing a few days ago:

" . . . . . . Credit card holders concerned about making payments on time can submit an online request for a payment deferral and, if you’re up to date on your accounts, those late payments will not be reported to credit bureaus. XYZ Bank has also paused foreclosures, evictions and repossessions."


I believe all federally backed mortgagees can get up to 12 month deferral of their mortgage payments. You do have to contact the mortgage holder.
