Whereas the Crisis Loan system has become obsolete in the UK, it is still in operation in Northern Ireland. The system has been replaced in the UK by budgeting loans and for existing applicants there is a much stricter process to follow. In order to discuss this further, it is advised that you call the customer service team on the Crisis Loan Contact Number – 0843 487 1802.


The Crisis Loan system was set up by UK government in order to help those who were receiving social benefits on a long term basis and were still struggling to pay for the essentials such as furniture, clothes and accommodation costs.. In their initial guise, the Crisis Loan became popular for many who were still struggling even whilst on benefits. Unfortunately many people who took out the loans failed to replay them in a timely manner and this lead to a collapse of the system. Whereas many still owe money on Crisis Loans and are in the process of repaying them, new applicants will find it even more difficult to apply for the newly formed Budgeting Loan. For more information on this benefit, it is advised that you call the customer service team on the Crisis Loan Contact Number – 0843 487 1802.

What are the terms and conditions of a Crisis/Budgeting Loan?

If you are an already existing customer of a Crisis Loan, then you will have to ensure that your previous account has been cleared in full before reapplying for a new account. This is due to the high amount of unpaid loans that have been discovered across the country. Traditionally the loans will last up to 104 weeks and are interest free. You will have been claiming benefits for over 26 weeks at this point and struggling with essential payments. The maximum loan is £1500 and the loans begin at £100.
