Redundancy can be stressful. For many, it will mean your financial situation will change. The best way to prepare yourself is to get a good understanding of your finances as quickly as possible.

Review and manage your money

If you need support with reorganising your finances, you can arrange a personal review with one of our Banking Consultants.

They can help you identify ways to make the most of your money, reduce your discretionary spend and create lifelong financial habits to support you now and in the future. We’ll review your account together; it’s a free 1-hour session that you can arrange at a branch near you.

We also have tips and tools to help you manage your money, if you are budgeting, borrowing or saving.

Managing your money

Help with money worries

If you are worried about your mortgage, loan or other debts, we can support you. The sooner you get help, the better.

Check to see if you have Payment Protection Insurance (PPI). It's insurance that pays out a sum of money to help you cover repayments on your loan, credit card, or mortgage (product) in certain life events. It may help if you’ve been made redundant. Please bare in mind that this information is only a guide to what benefit you may be able to claim. All claims are assessed, based on your current policy terms and conditions.
