For the fourth time in a year, Bank of America has trimmed personnel amid slack demand for home loans. Retail originations sank 49 percent to $11.6 billion in the fourth quarter, Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson said on Jan. 15.

Affected employees were told yesterday about the eliminations, which involve workers who process new home loans, said the people, who asked for anonymity because the dismissals haven’t been made public. California locations that will lose workers include an office in Concord, and another in Pasadena that will be shut entirely, the people said.

Severance Pay

The terminations are immediate, with employees receiving salaries for two months and eligible for severance pay afterward, the people said. Other offices closed this year include sites in Las Vegas and St. Charles, Missouri, the people said.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo & Co. have also been dismissing people as higher interest rates discourage the refinancings that banks rely on to fuel profits.
