Payment holidays for mortgages
If you’ve been financially impacted by COVID-19 and are worried about making your next payment to your mortgage – we could support with a 3 month payment holiday, for eligible borrowers. Once agreed this will have no impact on your credit rating.
Increased contactless limit
Contactless limits have increased from £30 to £45 on contactless enabled Credit and Debit cards. Retailers will be updating their 'point of sale' card terminals over the coming weeks to accept the new limit.
Early access to fixed savings
Customers facing financial difficulties as a result of Covid-19 will be able to access their Fixed Rate Saver accounts early. We've waived our usual fees so you can access your funds early without penalty. Please note it could take up to 5 working days to close the account. This is a temporary measure to help our customers and may be withdrawn at any time in the future. If you require early access to your fund please get in touch.
Business customers support
HSBC is taking part in the government-backed business disruption loan scheme announced by the Guernsey, Isle of Man and Jersey governments. If you are a HSBC business customer please contact your Relationship Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on the support available for our eligible business customers.
Beware of Fraud
Some criminals are using the coronavirus outbreak as an opportunity to scam the general public. Please continue to always be vigilant and remember that HSBC will never call you to ask you to generate a Secure Key code or ask for your PIN number. You should never share your security details with anyone else.
