Chase Provides Details for Tapping up to $5 Billion in Additional Capital for Businesses Impacted by Superstorm Sandy

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chase today further outlined specifics for businesses impacted by Superstorm Sandy to take advantage of the company's commitment to lend up to $5 billion in additional capital. They include:

  • Any business impacted by Superstorm Sandy can apply for expedited credit by calling 1-800-CHASE38 (1-800-242-7338), visiting a Chase branch, or contacting their banker
  • Special pricing and benefits may be available to qualifying businesses applying by January 31, 2013

In the past two weeks, Chase Business Bankers have called nearly 90,000 customers in the storm's path to inquire about their well-being and ask how Chase can help.

The $5 billion capital commitment to small and mid-sized businesses is on top of ongoing business lending at Chase.
