    Are you aware how the $150k income requirement is determined/assessed? If your household income meets that, would it be sufficient? Or does it need to be individually? If individually, if your recent fortnightly pay shows the correct amount say would that suffice?

      Hello Lenny,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Yes, Citi Prestige has set their income requirement to $150,000 p.a. Your income is an important eligibility requirement that the issuer will use to assess your ability to repay. You will have to provide information about your current income, spending habits, and any existing debts to help the credit card issuer determine whether or not you can manage more credit.

      It is more likely to assess you individually, hence, better to lay all your possible income. You may want to check our article about income requirements to get more idea.
