Credit Cards

Fluid Credit Card

Persistent Debt

Q: What happens if my account falls into Persistent Debt?

The FCA now requires us to monitor your account to check it’s not falling into Persistent Debt. If you do, we will contact you to let you know and suggest ways that you can increase your payments. You can still use your card as normal as long as you stay within your credit limit but we won’t be able to offer you any credit limit increases. If your account is still in Persistent Debt after 36 months we are required to take additional measures to help you pay off your balance in a reasonable period. In certain circumstances, we may need to freeze your card until you increase your repayments.

Q: How do I avoid my account being in Persistent Debt?

Regularly making payments higher than the contractual minimum payment will help to avoid your account being in Persistent Debt. To help you do this, we have introduced Boosted Payments. This is a variable higher payment that will clear your balance faster and help you save on interest. You can of course make additional payments whenever you choose.
