As the whole country goes into lockdown due to the increasing cases of COVID-19 patients, many businesses have closed while others decided to continue. For businesses who continued their operations, they had their employees working from home, while others did not work at all.
And for some employees, no work means no pay. This is a big problem especially to employees who are relying on their salaries to pay their bills.
There is also no assurance as to when this lockdown will end.
Fortunately, government agencies, banks, and companies offering essential services took the initiative to extend their payment deadlines for all their customers.
If you are one of those who are anxious about how to pay their bills, here is a list of companies who are waiving their payment deadline for a month.
Government agencies such as SSS, PagIBIG, PHILHEALTH, have extended the deadline for membership contributions. Deadline for government loans has been extended as well.
Water and Electricity
If you are residing in Angeles City, Angeles City Electric Corporation and Angeles City Water District have extended their payment deadline. Angeles City Water District also waived penalties for late payment.
Phone and Mobile Plans
You don’t have to worry if you are not able to pay for your phone or internet bills. These providers have extended their payment deadlines as well.
Internet and Cable
Internet and cable providers in the country also extended their payment by 30 more days from the due date.
Banks (credit cards, housing loan, car loan, etc)
As a assistance to their customers, these banks have also extended their payment deadlines for credit cards, housing loan, auto loan, personal loan, etc.
These are just some of the companies that have extended their payment deadlines for their customers in the midst of the national lockdown.
If you are a customer of these companies, make sure to coordinate to these entities to avail the payment deadline extension.
