We all know that circumstances can quickly change, so if you find yourself in a situation where you think that you may not be able to make your next repayment or you are struggling with the amount that you need to repay, there are things you can do.
Our teams understand that circumstances can change and they’re here to work with you to get your repayments back on track.
If you have had a change in circumstance, speak to your Rep. This way we can start helping you as soon as possible.
If you don’t feel comfortable discussing your personal circumstances with your Rep during your home visits or over the phone then you can contact us directly:
We appreciate that the last thing you need when struggling to pay on time is additional charges or fees. So you’ll never be charged if you miss or make a late repayment. However, missing or making a late payment could be recorded on your credit file which may affect your ability to get credit in the future.
If your finances have been impacted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic there are options available to support you. Your Rep will be able to explain these to you.
You can find out more on our coronavirus update page.
