What is Financial Hardship?

Financial Hardship is when a customer is willing and has the intention to pay, but due to a change in their circumstances, is now unable to meet their repayments or existing financial obligations. With formal hardship assistance, their financial situation will be restored.


Reasons which may qualify you for Financial Hardship

Common events contributing to financial difficulty may include:

  • Changes in income and/or expenses
  • Changes in employment (such as reduced hours, loss of job, reduced pay)
  • Significant life events (such as illness, injury, relationship break down, death or disability)
  • COVID-19
  • Natural disaster
  • Legal matters such as court actions, judgement or court orders
  • Company failure or some other event such as insolvency or administration.
