Financial Relief Program


For more than 150 years, Busey has delivered on a promise of trusted customer relationships and community support. Busey’s storied history of supporting associates, customers and communities continues in today’s fluid, ever-evolving landscape. 

COVID-19 is not only impacting our health and safety, it is causing significant economic disruption that will have implications for both individuals and businesses, making our promise of support even more important to customers during this time. 

Busey's Financial Relief Program is designed to alleviate some of the hardships you may face as a result of the pandemic itself or the resulting economic impacts.

In late March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was signed into law, providing financial aid to individuals and businesses impacted by the economic repercussions of COVID-19. To see how this act may impact you, visit Busey's CARES Act page

For more information, we invite you to view President & Chief Executive Officer of Busey Bank, Robin Elliot's message of reassurance or see the informational tabs below.

Unemployment Insurance Identity Theft 
 
Amid the highest unemployment rates in nearly a century, a new threat has developed—unemployment insurance identity theft. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act temporarily expanded unemployment benefits through July and many states now participate in an interim unemployment payment program launched in August by the Trump administration. While the payment programs were designed to help the jobless, they’ve provided additional incentives to scammers.
 
According to the FBI, many unemployment insurance victims do not know they have been affected until they file for jobless insurance benefits—and surprisingly, individuals don’t have to be out of work to fall victim to unemployment fraud.
 
For a list of precautions, tips and resources related to unemployment fraud, visit our Unemployment Fraud Prevention blog post. 
 
Busey promises to protect your information and identity by providing resources that offer practical, effective suggestions for avoiding security issues and scams.
