United Teletech Financial is not just for your banking and financial needs, but to help you and your family through difficult times. We’ve put together a list of local resources to help you manage the impacts of COVID-19. Together, as a community, we will get through this.

For banking needs, if you run into challenges during this time please reach out to us and visit our COVID-19 Hardship assistance page. If you are recently unemployed due to the pandemic or experienced other hardship, we have programs that may help you. From waiving late fees on loan payments, to deferring loan payments, we can help. Find out how by calling 732-530-8100.
