It can be expensive to borrow small amounts of money and borrowing may not solve your money problems.

Check your options before you borrow:

How does a ClearCash Loan work?

ClearCash loans range between $500 and $3,000. The loan terms vary between 4 to 12 months. Applicants can apply for a loan online and must meet the eligibility requirements. If approved, customers can receive funds within one hour of accepting the contract.

Borrowers are required to make repayments weekly, fortnightly or monthly, which are debited directly from the nominated account. Borrowers will also be charged an APR of 47.8% APR. As an ongoing line of credit, it will remain open until it's repaid and the borrower asks for it to be closed.

Features of a ClearCash Loan

  • Loan amount. Credit limits range between $500 and $3,000.
  • Top-up or redraw. Customers can log in to the member's area to see if they are eligible to increase their credit limit or top-up their cash.
  • Fees. Applicants will be charged an interest rate of 47.8% APR and the other fees and charges depend on the frequency of their repayments. They will receive a full fee statement as part of their loan contract. Applicants need to read this carefully and ensure they can afford it before signing anything.
  • Repayments. Repayments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly and are debited directly from their account automatically. Customers will receive repayment reminders three days before so they know the money will be coming out.
  • Turnaround. Borrowers can apply online in a few minutes and find out if they are approved soon after. After they accept their contract, their credit limit can be made available to them within the hour.

      Hello Roslyn,

      Thank you for your comment.

      For ClearCash, if you’re receiving Government benefits, you can still be eligible. Just refer to the eligibility requirements above or inquire directly from the lender.

      Moreover, there are also other lenders that consider pensions as an income. You may want to get in touch with the lenders on this page that might be able to help you obtain a personal loan while on DSP pension.

      You may also read our comprehensive guide to getting a loan on Centrelink payments. I hope this helps.
