Coronavirus – how we can help you

The Society is monitoring the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) closely to ensure we are taking all necessary steps to protect our colleagues, maintain our services and support our customers.

We have taken a proactive approach to our business continuity and have tested a range of contingency measures to minimise any foreseeable impact of COVID-19. Please be assured, we are still available to you, offering our full range of savings and mortgage services.

Following advice from the UK Government and the NHS, in common with many other UK businesses, we have reorganised how our team at head office is working. As a result, if you would like to get in touch with us for any reason, we recommend that you send us a message using our Contact page. This will ensure that your enquiry can be dealt with, without delay, by the appropriate department.

We know you love our branches and we’re doing all we can to keep them operating albeit for essential transactions only, e.g. cash and cheque withdrawals, cheque deposits and electronic transfers. Following advice from the UK Government and the NHS, we ask that you do not visit any of our branches if you have COVID-19 symptoms, have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or you have travelled to any of the high risk countries detailed on the UK Government’s website.

Instead of conducting transactions in branch, you can operate your account by post or ask a third party to act on your behalf. Please contact your local branch for more details.

We expect the COVID-19 disruption to continue for some time and we are aware that our borrowers may be financially impacted. If you are experiencing or foresee any financial difficulties, our advice is to get in touch with us as soon as possible using our website. We will look at every customer’s situation on an individual basis to determine what solutions we can offer.

If you are a mortgage customer and wish to request a mortgage payment break you can do so on our website. You may also find these FAQs regarding mortgage repayment breaks useful, as well as information from the government for those who are buying or selling private residential homes in which they intend to live.

Colin Fyfe, Hinckley & Rugby chief executive, said:

“We know that mortgage payments can be the largest monthly outgoing for the vast majority of households. We are keen to reassure our members that the Society, in line with the industry, is working hard to put supportive measures in place, including payment holidays where suitable.”

The wellbeing of our colleagues and members is very important to us and we appreciate your support during these uncertain circumstances.
