Important information

If you've had two repayment breaks, please refer to the email we'll send you around 3 weeks before your payments are due to restart for further help and support.

If your repayment break is ending

We’ll send you details of what you need to do next. This information will be sent from NatWest loans, powered by Adobe/Echosign.com.

Please do not take any action until you receive this.

  • Be sure to go through your options carefully to work out which one is the best one for you, especially as some options may affect your credit file. Additionally, some options mean that you will pay more interest overall.
  • If you can't afford to make your next payment, we can help in a number of ways, depending on whether the changes to your financial situation are temporary or more permanent. 

Please note that if you don't take any action, your payments will resume on your regular payment date.

Options to consider

If you're still temporarily impacted by coronavirus, you can apply for a repayment break provided you have not had the maximum of two already.

If you already know your circumstances won't improve, you could consider a long term repayment arrangement.

If you're struggling financially you may also want to consider independent support.

Apply for temporary support

If your finances are temporarily impacted by coronavirus and you can't afford to make your full monthly loan payments, we're here to help. You can apply for your first or second repayment break provided you have not had the maximum of two already.

I can afford to pay some of my loan

If you've applied for a repayment break, pay what you can into your loan account, whenever you're able to during your repayment break period.

I can't afford to make any payment

Even if you can afford a small amount, you should consider making reduced payments to help bring down what you'll pay in the long run.

Long term repayment arrangement

If you already know your circumstances are unlikely to improve and you wouldn't be able to start repayments after a repayment break, Cora your digital assistant can help you sort it. 

Ask Cora via the 'Help' button in the bottom right corner of  the page and quote 'payment holiday ending' in your message.
