Supporting you and your clients through the Coronavirus outbreak

Last updated 24 July 2020

Getting help with your client's mortgage

We’re committed to supporting our mortgage members who’ve been financially affected by coronavirus. There’s a number of ways we can help.

See our Home Support Package

If they’ve already been on a mortgage payment holiday

All the options in our Home Support Hub are still available to them, including our new mortgage payment break. It’s very similar to our previous mortgage payment holiday, but the application process has changed. 

They’ll also be able to choose between a full or a partial payment break.

Fraud protection

Be aware that some criminals are using Coronavirus to trick people into sharing personal or financial information.

Watch out for:

  • Cold calls from criminals pretending to be from Nationwide or other respectable organisations.
  • Emails that ask you to click on a link to log in, update information, or to access important news.

Stay safe:

  • Remember that Nationwide will never ask you to move money to a safe account.
  • Do not click on links within emails – go direct to the site using the web address you know to be correct.
