Answers to the questions people ask most often about getting financial help.

Find out ways some features of your current loan might help your situation.
If you notify us of your changing circumstances, we aim to work with you side by side to help you understand your options.
To do this, we will need to understand your unique situation to be able to consider your hardship request and discuss your options.
This may include asking you:
- The reasons why you are in financial hardship
- An indication of how and when your situation will improve.
- Whether you can make any repayments to your loan and over what period
- To provide a 'statement of financial position', which means information that sets out your income and expenses, as well as relevant supporting documents, like bank statements.
For customers who are under financial assistance arrangements with Pepper Money, you will not be charged Default, Arrears or Dishonour fees during this time, and we will not apply additional default interest on amounts in arrears.
As everyone’s circumstances are different, the exact length of time for the repayment break will depend on your individual situation.
30 days before the end of your repayment holiday, Pepper Money will contact you to let you know that this arrangement is coming to an end and that your loan repayments will soon recommence. Learn more about the process here.
