Where a member has found themselves in these kinds of financial difficulties, we may offer an interest-free loan. This can be paid back through deductions from salary for up to five years.
If we are not able to help with a loan, we can assist with debt counselling. Members can make an appointment to see a specialised debt counsellor who works very closely with PayPlan.
We can give guidance and support on how to deal with debt such as ways to maximise income, debt management plans, Individual Voluntary Arrangements and even bankruptcy.
We can also point members to other agencies and charities who may be able to help them, starting with the Useful Links page.
