Coronavirus Impact and Response

Your wellbeing is our priority during this unprecedented event.

We're Here for You

COVID-19 has presented all of us with an incredible challenge. Beyond the already worrisome threat of illness, there's the financial disruption that we're all feeling. Jobs have been changed dramatically or lost outright. Businesses have shuttered. Services have slowed.   

And yet the bills are still coming. The rent's still due on the first of the month. It's scary and hard in ways we may not all feel prepared to manage.

That's why we want you to know that you're not alone.

MMI is here to support you through the challenges ahead. Our team of financial counselors are available to help, not just with today's emergencies, but with the difficult work that will inevitably surface down the road, when we're ready to find our way back to "normal".

In the meantime, this page exists as a resource for crucial information, updates, and answers during this difficult time. Check back often.
