Holloway Friendly is offering members the ability to pause their insurance and payments for up to six months in response to the cost of living crisis.
The option will be made available to members who have had their insurance in place for at least three months.
The mutual introduced a similar option during the Covid pandemic for members experiencing financial difficulties and has also introduced a member support fund.
It will use this, at its discretion, where it identifies members who might benefit from some financial help.
Stuart Tragheim, CEO at Holloway Friendly, said: “This has been a difficult year for many people, and we’re seeing an increasing number of our members impacted.
“We’re aware that things may continue to get worse in the short term, as we see the consequences of high levels of inflation, rising energy prices and potential increases in mortgage payments, for example. So we feel it’s the right thing for us to be introducing these measures now to do what we can to help.
“Our members will be able take a breather from payments if money is tight for up to six months and, we hope, will reactivate their valuable protection when they’re ready. And we’re looking forward to being able to make a difference to people with our new Member Support Fund.”
