Banking Relief Package for clients impacted by COVID-19

Package eligibility 


If your BOQ Specialist personal lending facilities are up to date, you are eligible to access our Banking Relief Package. Once you have submitted your application, written confirmation of the changes to your facility will be sent to you within. If your circumstances differ, a member of our team will be in touch with you to discuss your options.

Package deferral period


BOQ Specialist’s Banking Relief Package gives eligible customers the option of deferring your retail loan repayments for up to six months, with a three month check-in.

If you’re not in a position to re-start your regular loan repayments after six months, you can apply to extend your repayment deferral period by up to a further four months. A member of our team will discuss this option with you when we check-in towards the end of your current repayment deferral period. Alternatively, if you would like to discuss your options sooner, you can contact our dedicated team on 1300 160 160.

The extension of your Banking Relief Package by up to a further four months is not automatic or guaranteed. If you choose to apply for an extension beyond your six month repayment deferral period, we will complete a financial assessment and will notify you whether or not your application is approved.

 

The financial consequences of deferring your loan repayments


It's important to understand that while you are deferring your repayments, interest will continue to accrue on your loan balance. Your loan balance will increase as interest is added to the loan, which means you may end up paying more.

To reduce the total amount you will need to repay over the term of your loan, it’s a good idea to return to making your regular repayments as soon as your circumstances allow. You can also choose to make repayments of any amount to your loan at any time during your repayment deferral period. These repayments will not affect your access to BOQ Specialist’s Banking Relief Package.
