Once you’ve logged in to your My whg account, you won’t need to enter or remember your PRN number – it’s as easy as entering the amount you wish to pay and confirming your payment details.

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is an easy and convenient way to pay. Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly, four-weekly or on a calendar month basis, on a day of your choice.

If you pay by Direct Debit you know that your rent is always paid on time and that any changes are managed for you without the hassle of going to the bank. The Direct Debit Guarantee means your payments are secure and protects you in the rare event that there is an error.

  • To set up a direct debit, you will need a bank, building society or credit union account and if you don’t already have one, our Money Advisors can help you to set one up.
  • Simply complete a Direct Debit Form and return it to us. We can also set up a Direct Debit over the phone between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Call us on 0300 555 6666.
  • We will send you a rent statement every 13 weeks. Please contact us if you require a copy at any other time.
  • Your rent to whg is payable every week and all rent is due in advance for the week ahead. It is important that you pay regularly and do not fall behind with your payments, known as arrears. With the introduction of Universal Credit benefits, it’s important you manage your money correct and ensure bills, including your rent is paid. To work out a budget or how the Universal credit system might affect you take a look at our budget calculator.
