< Return to Coronavirus: Guidance and information
You can ask for third-party access in all kinds of situations. For example, you or someone close to you could get a job abroad; or get rushed into hospital; or develop long-term health difficulties.
If possible, try to set up third-party access as soon as you think it'll be needed. That way, you can get things in place early and hopefully avoid problems.
When setting it up, you've a few options, both short and long-term. Choosing the right one depends on the situation, the level of help needed and how long it’s needed for.
If you're unsure how long you'll need it for, speak to us and we'll try to help.
