Pega Collections special circumstances for Financial Services

Updated on September 10, 2021

When a customer is subject to a special circumstance (such as bankruptcy or a health issue), an organization might want to process their case within the collections application. These cases might or might not be delinquent. The entry rules also might need to accommodate entry to collections of cases based on a specific status, regardless of the days past due or arrears balance.

Examples of special circumstances

A collection strategy for an account with special circumstances is most likely different than the strategy for a similar account without special circumstances. Examples of special circumstances include:

  • Military service
  • Death
  • Illness
  • Incarceration
  • Bankruptcy
  • Hardship

Flowchart for special circumstances

The following flowchart identifies the special circumstances that can affect a customer’s ability to pay. The available list of circumstances is determined by business needs. The customer can have more than one special circumstance, in which case the user should capture all relevant details.
