JN Bank offers savings and loan products to all UK residents, but knowing that you are a member of the JN Group will allow us to structure future product offerings in a bespoke and tailored manner to best meet your personal needs.

From March 2020 UK banks are implementing a “Confirmation of Payee Service” as a way of helping their customers and ensuring that they are making payments to the intended recipients.  For banks not yet set up for this service, such as JN Bank, a message will be displayed informing you that the intended payment details cannot be verified. Until the system is extended to all UK banks, including JN Bank, we ask that you carefully verify that you have entered the JN Bank Sort Code and Account Number correctly prior to confirming your payment instruction.

The interest on your savings accounts is calculated using your daily balance. With a JN Bank Easy Access Savings Account this interest is paid to your account on the first day of each month. With a JN Bank Fixed Term Savings Account this interest is paid to your account on the anniversary of the initial deposit. The rate at which the interest is calculated can be found on your Summary Documents or in the Historic Savings Rates.

If you are either employed or self-employed, we are happy to review your loan application. We may need to request additional information and documents to verify your income, but we will make this clear during the process.

Yes, benefits can be included within your income.  

 

However, we do not accept unemployment related benefits such as Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) or Employment and Support Allowance (ESA). Your income must be regular and sustainable during the term of loan.
Cash based income is acceptable provided it has been declared to HMRC on your tax returns (SA302s) which we will need to see. As a responsible lender, we need to ensure your income is regular and sustainable for the duration of the loan.
Yes, all JN Bank customers must have a valid UK current account that can process Direct Debits.

You will need to create an online profile as part of your first application.  

In the next stage, we will take some personal details and ask you to state the amount you would like to borrow and over how long. We will then carry out a quick eligibility check to see how likely we are to accept you. This will not affect your credit file. 

If you are eligible, we will ask you some more details, to assess your ability to repay your requested borrowing. We will also run a full check on your credit file at a leading credit reference agency. 

If your application is successful, you will be made a loan offer.  

Please note, the loan amount and interest rate we offer is based on your personal circumstances and may differ from the original amount you requested and/or the rate advertised. 

During the process, we may ask you to upload some documentary support – see above.

By completing a full application for a loan, we will request your credit file report from a leading credit reference agency. They will provide us with information about your credit history and this search will be visible to other lenders. There may also be a change applied to your credit score as a result. 

If your application is successful and you take out a loan with us, failure to repay your monthly payments on time would be shown on your credit file and may harm your score.  

We will always try to help if you are finding the repayments difficult to meet. If that happens, never hesitate to call our Customer Services team on 0808 196 1945  

You can check your credit report by contacting any of the credit reference agencies in the United Kingdom. Your credit reference file should include information from the electoral roll and other public records. It will also reveal any current County Court Judgments, insolvency and bankruptcy data.
Once we have approved your loan, the funds will be credited to your nominated UK current account within a maximum of 2 working days, although this can often happen much sooner.

Being eligible for a loan does not guarantee you will be approved after the full application is submitted. 

The full application requires obtaining a full credit file report, assessing your ability to repay the loan you have applied for, and we may also need to re-validate your eligibility if some time has passed since the first check was carried out. 

You may need to give us some more information to support your application, such as proof of your identity or address. This can be done easily online via our website. 

In some circumstances, we may have to decline your application as part of our commitment to be a responsible lender.

Yes. Applicants must have a UK bank account registered in their own name. 

We may at any time conduct checks against various industry databases to verify your details to comply with money laundering regulations to protect against identity theft and fraud. 

Our address verification system electronically validates that your bank account is registered in your name and at your current home address. Therefore, if you have recently moved it might be a good idea to contact your bank with your new address.

No, neither do we apply any fees to the loan advance, or include them in your repayments. 

Our borrowers receive the whole amount of the loan offered. Before you take out the loan you will always know the interest rate and the total you will have to repay over the life of the loan.   

We may apply fees if you miss scheduled repayments or they fail to be cleared in the time stated within your agreement with us. However, we will try to contact you to ensure that you are aware of this at the time.  

With a JN Bank Personal Loan, you will always know its total cost. 

Before you apply, our loan calculator provides an illustration of your monthly repayments - based on the amount you hope to borrow, over your chosen repayment term.

If your loan application has been accepted, we only need your assistance in specifying how you would like to make repayments. This is done by setting up a direct debit to your nominated bank account.  

We will let you know if we need to check anything else regarding your application. This may require documentation to be provided to help verify some of your details. These documents are known as JN Bank Acceptable Forms of Identification and are used to confirm your identity, home address, income or bank account. This protects you from criminals who might try to use your identity without you knowing. 

If you are asked to provide this documentation, please make sure that: 

  • The name and address detailed on your identification is the same as the name and address you provided us during your application
  • Your proof of address is dated within the last three months
Your proof of bank account shows name, sort code and account number

The interest on your JN Bank Personal Loan is calculated daily on your remaining principal balance and charged within your monthly repayment.

What happens when you have complained?

On receipt of your complaint, we will provide a written acknowledgement within 3 working days.

Our complaint process has two stages:

Stage 1 – Straightforward Resolution

This allows us to quickly resolve complaints that require little or no investigation. We aim to do this within 3 working days. Should the complaint be more complicated than we originally thought, we will conduct a more detailed investigation. In the event that your complaint will take more than 3 working days to resolve, we will provide a written update to confirm this.

Stage 2 – Detailed Investigation

Detailed investigations are those that are complex in nature and may take longer to resolve.

For detailed investigations, we will:

  • Provide written confirmation of the timeline for resolution
  • Where appropriate, discuss your complaint with you to further understand what went wrong
  • Give you a full response to the complaint as soon as possible, preferably within 4 weeks.

If the investigation is particularly complex and we need longer than 4 weeks to resolve, we will tell you. In the event that this is the case, we will keep you updated on progress. We always aim to send a final response within 8 weeks.

If we cannot reach an agreement or conclude our investigations within 8 weeks, then you will have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. They can be contacted at:

The Financial Ombudsman Service

Harbour Exchange

Phone: 0800 023 4567

Email: complaint.info@financial-ombudsman.org.uk

 

If no correspondence is received within eight weeks of our final response to you, we will regard your complaint as closed. We will include the details for the Ombudsman within our final responses to all complaints, should you need them.

COVID-19 Support

Sorry, we couldn’t find any results

The Financial Conduct Authority has recently set out rules for firms which aims to support customers impacted by COVID-19. Customers can make a request to defer their loan repayments for the next 3-months if they are experiencing financial difficulty due to the pandemic.

If you have been impacted and would like to discuss a payment deferral, please contact us at CustomerEngagement@jnbank.co.uk and provide as much information about your current situation as possible. Alternatively, you can call our Customer Service team on 0808 196 1945.

Our commitment is to work with you on an individual basis, understanding how you have been impacted and doing everything that we can to help you through these difficult times.

You can still apply for a payment deferral if you are behind with your loan repayments, however any deferred payments must be paid in the future and you may pay more overall than originally expected. If you are struggling to maintain your repayments or considering a deferral, please contact us as soon as possible using the above email address.

Interest will continue to be charged for deferred payments, so for some customers a payment deferral may not be the best option. At JN Bank we will work with all of our customers to find the right solution depending on their circumstances, helping you to find a way.
