What is Promise to Pay?
In general, when a customer is unable to make a repayment on the due date, they contact their lenders or credit providers seeking arrangements to make the overdue payment. During this time if the customer can give confidence to the lender within a reasonable duration, they will be able to pay the full overdue payment or at least part of it, it is known as ‘Promise to Pay’. After evaluating the circumstances such as during a hardship of a pandemic or a bush fire, according to the policies and procedures stated by the lender, the Promise to Pay will be acknowledged and effected.
Every Lender have their own Hardship Management Process. Hardship workflow and document management to manage Customer contact compliance and ethics is the priority of their management.
Lenders has identified that financial difficulties during crisis and hardships can be very complex and difficult and their main concern is to assist customers to overcome them according to guidelines and frameworks. Usually accounts in hardship are categorized based on their risk.
