You will need to take this up with your IP company - you can pay back the shortfall when you have the money. It is strange times for all of us now.

As Kallis says, you need to chat with your provider. Most tag the missed payments on at the end, but I have heard of people paying in an extra 'lump', as and when, to cover arrears ---- if you do this, though,make sure it is documented --- you don't want them asking for it twice !
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
