Car Loan For Disability Pension

Looking at buying a new car? Jacaranda Finance can provide car loans for disability pensioners.

Everyone is different and we understand how that makes every financial circumstance different. Our team will take a realistic look at your individual financial situation and take the time to properly assess your application to ensure we find the best possible solution for you. If you have the means to pay back the loan we may be able to approve you for a car loan as a disability pensioner. Jacaranda’s commitment to responsible lending means we will never lend you an amount of cash that we do not believe you can repay.

Loan For Single Parent Pension

At Jacaranda Finance, we appreciate how difficult it can be to live off a single parent income. Let’s face it, kids cost a lot of money and sometimes you just need an extra hand.

Do We Conduct Credit Checks

Yes, at Jacaranda Finance we do conduct credit score checks for pension loans. Our commitment to responsible lending means we will always check credit scores. The good news is, this is not the only thing we look at and it’s definitely not the deciding factor. Our team is down-to-earth, so we understand that bad credit can hang around for up to 7 years – a lot can change in that period of time. That’s why we take a deeper look at your financial situation. Usually, if we can see you have made considerable effort to rectify the situation, you could be eligible for a personal loan as a pensioner.

Can I Get A Loan On Centrelink?

Unfortunately, there is no ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to this question, every applicant is different. That is why our team takes a personal approach to the loans assessment process. We like to see what makes up your regular expenses and income. As we are committed to responsible lending, our team will never approve a loan that is impossible to pay back. Our goal is to get you out of financial stress.

Here at Jacaranda, we are all about fast outcomes and work hard to process all client applications promptly.

Do Jacaranda Conduct Employment Checks?

Yes, Jacaranda does conduct employment checks. However, there is no need to stress. This is just part of the process. Since we do not base our assessment solely off credit score checks, our lending team likes to get a better understanding of the whole picture. We will contact your employer to verify that you have a means of paying back the loan amount – but this is just a routine check and we will not share any of the details of your loan application with your employer. For those on a pension or Centrelink, this may be considered as income. There isn’t just one rule for everyone, so our team will take a better look at this while assessing your application. If you are unemployed we suggest still submitting an application as it doesn’t cost anything and you could have a fast outcome. What have you got to lose?

Why Do We Need to Provide Online Banking Details?

This is a question we get a lot. Basically, Jacaranda Finance uses your online banking details to get a better understanding of spending habits, regular deposits, and income. There’s definitely no cause for concern though, we will only ever access read-only copies of your bank statements (not your actual bank account). Jacaranda uses the latest in safe banking technology. Your information is always encrypted, so no one will ever see passwords or personal information.
