I live in Houston and we recently had some flooding as a result of Tropical Storm Imelda. FEMA just recently began to offer assistance.

Apple sent an email letting me know that Disaster Relief Assistance was available to me.

  • No interest for two months, starting with the month you enroll. After two months, your standard purchase APR will apply.
  • You can skip the payment due in the month you enroll.
  • If your account is in good standing, you will remain current while enrolled.
  • If your account is past due, your account will not go further delinquent while enrolled. However, your account will remain past due until you make all of your past due payments and your ability to make new purchases may continue to be restricted.
From my experiences with Hurricane Harvey a few years ago, most companies will work with you but you have to seek them out to see what they can do. While I wasn't affected, it's good to see that Apple is being proactive about this.
