Dear Receiver’s Name,
I am enrolled in your English Literature 101 class and have been absent for the past five weeks because of injuries I sustained in an automobile accident.
You have kindly accommodated my situation by allowing me to turn in my homework late, and this has helped make it possible for me to remain enrolled in the university and not lose a semester, and I am very grateful to you.
I have been released from the hospital, but still need to walk with crutches for the next month. Because of this inconvenience, it will be very difficult to do the required research for the mid-term paper that is due on DATE. I would like to ask for an extension of 10 days to complete the paper. It is my intention to submit the paper to you on DATE.
Thank you again for the kindness you have shown me during this difficult time and for taking the time to consider my current request.
I would be happy to answer any questions, and have enclosed a letter from my doctor explaining my current physical condition. You can call me at 555-123-4567 or email me at [email protected]

Subject: Request for an extension of loan payments
Dear Name of Lender:
This email is a formal request to have a five-month extension on my car loan. I have made payments of $200 per month for the past 18 months, and the loan is for 12 more months.
I have just lost my job and cannot make payments at this time. I need my car to find another job, and hope to do so within five months at the most. I understand that the interest still accrues and intend to pay this debt in full.
I was working as a personal trainer for the Name of Company, when they let go seven trainers including me. I am a qualified physical trainer and believe I can get another job soon. I have applied to three local gyms. I would like to make my last payment on DATE and resume payments on DATE.
Thank you for considering my request for a five-month extension of my car loan. I can be reached at Phone Number or at Email Address. I hope to receive a favorable reply from you soon. I will call to arrange an appointment next week.
