OUTCOME

If we request information about your circumstances and it’s not provided to us, we may not be able to make an assessment about your eligibility under our Financial Hardship policy. Once all requested information (if applicable) has been provided, we will make an assessment within 5 business days and advise you of the outcome. We will not charge you for this assessment.

Your Financial Hardship assessment will be subject to a review every three months, to make sure the arrangement is still suitable to your financial position. If your financial position changes, for better or worse, please contact us at your earliest convenience to discuss your situation.
