As Metro Manila remains under enhanced community quarantine, most banks in the country are offering some form of payment grace periods for clients. The hope is this allows families to focus on their health and safety without the stress of having to visit a bank branch and make a loan payment or their settle credit card bill.
It is important to note that no one is waving payment and you will be expected to pay what you owe in full at a later time. The new due date may vary, so be sure to ask your bank for more details if you have any questions.
