What is Financial Hardship?

Financial difficulty can mean something different for everyone. However, the following is a good guide if you have a loan / credit facility with us.

  • you have lost your job, or you have experienced a material adverse change in your employment or business operational;
  • you have an unexpected illness;
  • as a result of a relationship breakdown
  • you are behind in your loan / credit card repayments; or
  • you think you might be unable to make your repayments in the future due to some event

We want to assist you as soon as possible

MYCU urges anyone experiencing financial hardship to talk to their lender/s as soon as practicable. MYCU is here to offer compassionate, constructive help.

Whatever the case, MYCU can offer you financial hardship assistance to help protect your interest, in particular avoiding bankruptcy or the accumulation of excessive debt.

Can anyone use this service?

At MYCU all of our members are able to use the financial hardship assistance service in times of financial difficulty. We are committed to assisting and supporting our members facing financial hardship.

To do this, we will accept your application for Financial Hardship status, review it, and discuss with you options which may assist you in meeting your repayments.
