Having your role made redundant is one of life’s biggest challenges. How will I pay my mortgage? How will my family cope? How will I find a new job? We want you to feel you can talk to us about your concerns and know who you can contact for further advice.

Rent and Mortgage payments

Check your policies to see if you’ve taken cover for income protection and make a claim with your provider. You might also be entitled to receive benefits to help you.

Income

You may receive redundancy pay that could cover your outgoings until you start a new job. There may still be benefits that you can claim in the meantime

Financial difficulty

Once you know what your income will be, you should work on a Budget Calculator – if you’re registered for Internet Banking, you can log on and use the template on our site. If you have debts with us and feel you are struggling, you might want to speak to one of our advisors about your circumstances and see if we’re able to help. More information about this is available here.
