Hardship assistance

Caring like a neighbor is one of our core beliefs when serving customers and team members. To support our customers and communities, we have implemented new measures to alleviate the economic impact of the coronavirus.

  • For customers
    Mortgage and Home Equity payment deferrals: If you are facing hardship due to sickness or workplace closure, we are offering payment deferrals on TCF mortgage, home equity loans and home equity line of credits with no credit bureau impact and no late fees. Some mortgages may be eligible for additional payment deferrals.

    Payment Forbearance Assistance: Under the CARES Act, borrowers with a Federally backed mortgage loan who are experiencing a financial hardship due, directly or indirectly, to the Covid-19 emergency are eligible for a payment forbearance of up to 180 days, which may be extended for an additional period of up to 180 days, for a maximum forbearance of up to 360 days. Borrowers also have the option at any time to shorten the forbearance period and resume payments. (A “forbearance” is a temporary workout option for borrowers with a financial hardship that provides for a period of reduced or suspended payments; this may be followed by either a full reinstatement, loan payoff, or workout option to enable the borrower to resolve the delinquency.)

    To request assistance, please contact us Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST at 1-866-866-6577. Due to high demand, call wait times may be longer than normal. You can also email us at and we will contact you about your situation.

    Personal loans: We have developed a hardship program so those affected by the coronavirus can immediately skip up to two monthly payments, without incurring interest or late payment fees during that time. These payments will not be due until the end of the loan. Longer term hardship plans are also available if this emergency continues.

    To apply, borrowers need to complete a hardship assistance request form that may be found by:

  • For TCF team members
    In recognition of the challenges that essential front-line employees faced as they continued to support the critical banking needs of our customers we provided a temporary wage increase for more than 2,900 team members who are unable to work from home.

Government economic impact payments

As part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, recently signed into law, a third round of stimulus payments are being distributed to eligible Americans. The new round of payments will vary in amounts based on IRS criteria and eligibility. To learn more, see if you qualify, learn how you will receive your payment or check payment status, please visit the IRS website.

  • Direct deposit

    If your prior tax refund was deposited into a TCF Bank account, your economic impact payment will be deposited into the same account, (if it remains open). Eligible customers can expect to begin receiving the funds beginning March 17. However, not all stimulus payments will be disbursed at the same time. Those who don’t receive direct deposits can expect to receive payment via paper check or prepaid card, delivered over several weeks beginning mid-March.

    You can verify if your payment has been deposited through:
  • Paper checks

    If you’re expecting a paper check you can easily deposit it into a TCF account through:
