Typically, a “repayment holiday” is a temporary suspension to your loan repayments because of temporary financial stress.
At Pepper Money, you can apply to us for either a reduction to your loan repayment amount for a set period or a repayment break which involves putting a pause on making scheduled repayments on your home loan for a set period of time.
If you have applied for assistance with Pepper Money and we agree to pause your repayments, your scheduled repayments will likely increase once the repayment break has ended to ensure that your loan is repaid within the remaining loan term.
Please take the time to read about the hardship process and repayment holiday terms here in our Fact Sheet.
If you are eligible for financial assistance from Pepper Money, this will not negatively impact your credit history during this period.
Your repayments will be paused during the repayment break; however, it is important to note that interest will continue to accrue and will be added to your loan balance. At the end of the repayment holiday, your loan repayments will likely increase to ensure your loan is repaid within the original loan term. We will contact you prior to the end of the repayment break to discuss your circumstances.

30 days before the end of your repayment holiday, Pepper Money will contact you to let you know that this arrangement is coming to an end and that your loan repayments will soon recommence. Learn more about the process here.
