Arvest Bank understands the stress and uncertainty customers may be feeling as we all deal with the effects of COVID-19. We want to help ease any concerns customers may have about banking and/or their personal financial situations during this time.

That’s why it is important to know Arvest has expanded assistance programs available for customers dealing with hardship due to the effects of COVID-19.

Economic Impact Stimulus Payments

We are receiving many questions regarding the economic impact stimulus payments that were announced in March and want to offer a reminder that this is a government program and not a bank program.

*One of the best ways to get the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding economic impact stimulus payments is to visit this page set up by the Internal Revenue Service. It offers a variety of details about the program in a Q&A format.

Mortgage Servicing Assistance Options

We are working alongside our investor and agency partners at Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD-FHA, VA, USDA and others to help provide timely solutions to help keep you in your home.
