TIPS FOR WRITING A FINANCIAL
HARDSHIP LETTER

- Keep It Short
Keep your letter short and to the point. Try not to exceed one page. A long, wandering letter will
water down the essence of your case and will lose the reader.

- Make It Personal
Make sure that you personalize your letter as much as possible by including details about you and
your family that will get the reader to identify with your situation as a fellow human being.

- Clearly State Problem


Early in your letter, summarize the specific situation that has prompted you to write the letter.
Provide more details in the later paragraphs.

- Give Enough Information


Your letter should provide enough detailed financial and related information so that the reader
can easily understand your situation. Attach clarifying documents as necessary including: cash
flow statements, bank statements, income tax statements, invoices, letters, etc.
TIPS FOR WRITING A FINANCIAL
HARDSHIP LETTER

- Make Your Request


In the subject-line and the first paragraph of your hardship letter, state exactly what you are
requesting. Reiterate this request in slightly different words at the conclusion of the letter.

- Be Humble and Thankful


To reach the point where you have to write a financial hardship letter means that you are in deep
financial trouble and this is basically your last resort. Don't get into any blame games or side issues.
Be respectful and thank the addressee in advance for considering your situation.
