Ford Credit is offering customers affected by the recent wildfires in Southern California the opportunity to defer up to two auto payments.
Under Ford Credit's Disaster Relief Program, customers are given the opportunity to defer these monthly payments without paying extension fees. More than 215,000 customers living in five Southern California counties may be eligible because of extensive damage in those areas. The affected counties are Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura.
"Ford Credit is committed to its customers," said AJ Wagner, President of Ford Credit North America. "We understand that customers living in the affected areas may experience temporary financial problems due to the wildfires in Southern California. Our goal is to give them one less thing to worry about while they rebuild their lives."
Ford Credit customers who are eligible for the Disaster Relief Program should receive letters within the next few weeks with instructions on how to register. They must register by December 18 to qualify. The deferred payments will be due at the end of the contract term. Customers who have not received a letter but believe they qualify may inquire about the program by calling Ford Credit at (800) 723-4016.
