We understand that sometimes times are tight. We also understand that unexpected life events can arise and throw you off-guard.
If you can not pay your loan, the sooner you take action the better.
If you find yourself in one of the following situations, you may qualify for help under our hardship program to get you back on track:
- a loss of employment or reduced hours
- prolonged illness or injury
- a relationship breakdown
- being overcommitted
- natural disaster
- lost of a loved one
Ways we can help
We may be able to help you to repay your debt by varying your contract (for example, changing the amount or timing of your repayments).
Take care of your credit file
It is important to always pay on time. If you make a late payment which results in your loan being 14 days or more in or arrears this will be reflected on your credit file.
This may affect your credit score.
This is not the case if you have been approved for financial assistance with us. For the duration of your assistance, we won’t report you as late.
If you need further help and information about your options for managing your debts, ring 1800 007 007 from anywhere in Australia to talk to a free and independent financial counsellor. This is a free service.
What you should do
If you are in financial difficulty or are behind on your loan, you should get in touch with us on 1300 008 003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our team will provide you with an application form for financial assistance and, if you qualify, help tailor a solution relevant to your situation.
You should also get in touch with your utility companies, and any other lenders you have a relationship with to see how they can also help you.
