La Trobe Financial establishes $1 Million Flood Disaster Relief Fund to support impacted customers

La Trobe Financial has announced that it has established a Flood Disaster Relief Fund to assist customers affected by the NSW & QLD floods.
The $1 million fund has been designed to assist our customers as they deal with the crisis in what has already been a stressful last twelve months. Eligible customers whose home has been impacted by the floods will be able to access $2,000 grants for the purpose of clothing, food and temporary accommodation.
La Trobe Financial’s President & CEO, Greg O’Neill OAM commented, “I cannot imagine how these people are feeling. We have just come out of bushfires and COVID-19 and to be confronted by these floods is a real test to their Australian spirit. However, we will stand together with all of our customers and support those most in need and help them rebuild their lives as quickly as possible.”
In addition, for customers who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of their home being impacted by the floods, La Trobe Financial can defer loan repayments for up to four (4) months, reduce mortgage repayment arrangements or provide
temporary interest only payment terms. La Trobe Financial can also make it easier for customers to access their investments in the La Trobe Australian Credit Fund.
La Trobe Financial has a dedicated Hardship Help Team and hotline to help customers. Customers who have been affected should contact our team on 1800 620 639.
