Coronavirus Update

As the COVID-19 situation continues to change and evolve, we know it’s creating lots of uncertainty for our customers, colleagues and Agents. We’re truly sorry that this is affecting you, your family and friends and we will do what we can to help get you through these troubling times.

Agents are still working and are there if you need them. They'll keep in touch with you by phone, however they might not be able to visit you whilst the government restrictions are in place. If that's the case, your Agent will make you aware of the various alternative payment methods available and do what they can to help you with these.

If you need to speak to your Agent please call or text them.

Help with your loan

If you’ve found yourself in a situation where you’re not able to make your next payment, please don’t worry. Provident won’t ever charge you for missed or late payments, but you’ll need to let your Agent know as soon as you’re affected so they can help you.

How to pay without a home visit

If your Agent can't visit you there are a few alternative payment options available. Your Agent can discuss these with you. You can:

  • Call your Agent and give them your card details, and they can take the payment for you. This payment method is completely secure, but if you have any concerns please speak to your Agent and they can explain it to you in greater detail
