If you’re currently paying above your repayment amount, you can simply stop paying the additional amount and revert to your advised payment amount. You do not need to call or email us as long as you are maintaining your payments.

If you’re not paying above your repayment amount, you will need to apply for hardship. We review and assess each customer’s needs on a case-by-case basis, however, if you change your payment amount the following general guidelines will apply:

  • The specifics of your loan will change i.e. the term and/or payment amount, and this will be communicated to you in writing
  • Interest will continue to be charged on amended or deferred loans
