Hardship Assistance

Here at the Broken Hill Community Credit Union (BHCCU) we focus on making sure we lend responsibly, however we understand that your circumstances can change and place you in financial hardship.

These circumstances may include:
– Unemployment
– Reduced working hours
– Relationship breakdown
– Injury or illness
– Unfortunate financial choices

COVID-19 Loan Relief Package

Should you believe that you may be unable to meet your BHCCU loan or overdraft repayments due to any one of these circumstances or for anything else that life may throw at you, please contact us as soon as possible, the best thing you can do is take action.

We encourage all members to consider our financial hardship service. By allowing us to work with you, we can make an assessment of the best way to assist you and your family. We will always be open and committed to discussing the best options available.

The type of assistance available varies depending on individual needs and circumstances, but may include:
– Tailored repayment arrangements
– Deferred or reduced repayments
– Extending the term of the loan contract
– Referral to external financial counselling services
