COLUMBIA, S.C. – (Sept. 19, 2018) – South State Bank will dedicate $50,000 to the South State Emergency Relief Fund to directly aid communities and individuals affected by Hurricane Florence, in addition to offering a number of financial assistance programs.

“As a bank that serves many of the impacted communities in the Carolinas, we are very connected to those hardest hit by Hurricane Florence. We have team members, customers and branches in impacted areas, and we are committed to helping these communities rebuild and restore as quickly as possible,” said Robert R.

In addition, South State will offer the following assistance to customers in impacted areas: ATM fee waivers, a payment deferment program, an in-house special mortgage and unsecured loans.
