Lakeland Bancorp, Inc. and Lakeland Bank
While it is impossible to gauge the impact of COVID-19 on individuals and institutions alike, our own response at Lakeland has been guided by the same values we have adhered to for half a century – among them, a deep-rooted commitment to support our associates, customers and communities in a time of need.
We have taken decisive actions to protect the health of our associates and customers while still delivering exceptional service – by initiating remote working plans, modifying the operations of our branches and offices, and emphasizing mobile and online banking alternatives. Visit our website and social channels frequently for the latest updates on how we are providing the financial resources and services you need.
We are diligently monitoring all of the resources being made available to assist individual and business customers who are facing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. We have established online resources to help guide you through the process and our associates are working as quickly as possible to respond to requests for help. Please visit our Consumer Assistance and Business Assistance pages for resources and the most up-to-date information about relief programs and other ways we are assisting.
Lakeland is positioned to be a source of strength during this difficult time—not just financially, but because we have the most dedicated, professional and high-spirited associates committed to supporting you! Over the past five decades, we have helped our customers, associates and neighbors overcome challenges of many kinds.
We hope this will be a short-term challenge for all of us, but we are fully prepared to get through this together no matter how long it may take.
