YOU NOW HAVE UNTIL 5 PM ON 28 FEBRUARY 2022 (THE CLAIMS SUBMISSION DEADLINE) TO MAKE ANY CLAIM FOR UNAFFORDABLE LENDING FOR RELEVANT LOANS. ACT NOW.
The relevant loans are loans made by any of Provident, Satsuma, Glo or Greenwood (a Lender) between 6 April 2007 and 17 December 2020 (inclusive).
If you do not make your claim for unaffordable lending for a relevant loan by the Claims Submission Deadline, you will lose any right to do so. This includes any right to (i) receive cash compensation; (ii) reduce the amount of any outstanding loan that you have to repay or (iii) stop making payments under any guarantee. If you are in any doubt about whether you have a claim, you should submit a claim to ensure that it is considered.
You can submit a claim:
If you are in any doubt as to whether you have validly submitted a claim you are encouraged to submit it again. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. The details are on the "Contact Us" tab above.
IMPORTANT: The best way for you to make a claim is directly with Provident via our Claims Portal which can be accessed via this link. Making a claim via a third party, such as a Claims Management Company (‘CMC’), could potentially incur additional costs and result in you not receiving the full amount of compensation that you are owed. We have made the process really straight forward, and you will not need to have access to any of your loan details in order to make a claim directly with Provident. Should you need assistance in completing your claim form our contact centre team will be happy to help. They are available on 0800 056 8936.
A scheme of arrangement (the “Scheme”) is being proposed for the purpose of assessing and paying compensation claims against Provident Personal Credit Limited ("PPC") (which traded under the brand names Provident, Glo and Satsuma) and Greenwood Personal Credit Limited ("Greenwood") for unaffordable lending. The Scheme would cover customers to whom loans were given by Provident, Glo, Satsuma or Greenwood, or who may have guaranteed a loan from Glo, between 6 April 2007 and 17 December 2020.
It is important that customers take the necessary action if they believe they may have a claim as failing to do so may result in customers not receiving compensation.
The following timeline shows the indicative key Scheme dates and what action you need to take.
If you did not vote do not worry, you will still be able to submit a claim now that the Scheme has been implemented.
You have 6 months to submit a claim before the final deadline for claims which is 5pm 28 February 2022. Please note, even if you did register a claim when you voted, you will be able to amend the details of your claim at any time before the deadline.
