Please have a look at our FAQs below - we hope they'll answer any questions you have about your payment deferral ending.
How much do I need to pay?
The letter you've received will confirm the outstanding payment due on your account. Following on from this, each statement we send you will show both the full outstanding amount and the minimum amount due on your account.
Will I receive an up to date account statement?
Yes. You'll receive this within 21 days of your temporary deferral period ending. This will detail:
- Your account transactions
- The minimum payment required
- The due date for your payment
- Any interest charges incurred
Did you know you can access your statement online the day it's issued? Switching to e-statements means that your statements are available 24/7 and you can view them any time you need to. To make the switch today, click here
When will interest start being charged on my account?
This will start from the date of your next statement.
When is my next payment due?
