Many Australians experience Financial Hardship. It's okay if you do, we're here to help you.
What is Financial Hardship?
Financial Hardship is a change in your life that can make the cost of living very difficult. This can include:
- loss of a job within a household
- injury or illness
- domestic violence
- natural disasters
- relationship breakdowns
If this occurs, it's a good idea to get in contact with us so we can help.
How can Unloan help with Financial Hardship?
We treat every situation individually. Depending on the circumstance, we may:
- Reduce your repayments for a period of time
- Pause your repayments for a month or two
- Develop a unique plan for you to follow
Whatever we do, we want to ensure you get back to your normal repayments as soon as possible as interest may still grow on your loan.
How to get support
To help find the best solution possible, we may need you to provide the following for us to better understand your circumstances:
- Income statements
- Previous/ongoing expenses
- Medical certificate
- Employment separation certificate
If you find it difficult to talk about your Financial Hardship, you're welcome to have a representative such as a financial counsellor or family member speak to us.
