• Read your contract of employment to understand your rights to redundancy pay. The statutory legal minimum currently stands at one week for every complete year worked, up to a maximum of 12 weeks.
• Check whether you have any payment protection insurance (PPI) for your mortgage, personal loans or credit cards. PPI covers your monthly repayments if you suffer an accident, sickness or unemployment (it’s sometimes called ASU cover).
• If you're struggling with your mortgage repayments, let your lender know as soon as possible. They may agree a reduced payment plan, or let you repay the interest only until you have another job.
