    Can disability pensioners apply for a credit card?

    • finder Customer Care
      JhezelynMarch 17, 2018Staff

      Hi Sharon,

      Thank you for your comment.

      There are lenders who consider pension as an income. Here are the list of the providers who may consider pension as an income. Kindly check the guide and see the requirements before submitting an application.

      For Coles Mastercard, you will need to provide your pension statement. Some other financial institution may require you your recent 3 months of pension statement and a letter from Centrelink showing your name and the permanent government pension amount.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Jhezelyn

    I have been offered credit cards by my bank (NAB) for use by my company car drivers in their name but paid for by the company. There is an annual fee for each card. Can you do something similar but for no annual fee? There are about 8 or 9 cards required.

      JonathanJuly 19, 2017

      Hello Peter,

      We understand that you want to have no annual fees card for your drivers. You may compare our list of no annual fee cards for your needs.

      If you wish to get more out of spending on fuel by getting points, fuel cards may also be an alternative. They may have some monthly account fees but are smaller than regular petrol credit cards.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Hi Jasper,

      You can determine if your Coles Mastercard has no annual fee, if the bottom front part of the card shows “NO ANNUAL FEE” embossed on it.

      As long as you’ve been approved for Coles No Annual Fee MasterCard you can be entitled for no annual fee. But it would be always nice to double check with the provider your eligibility.

    I am retired with a defined benefit pension of over $25,000 pa, is a statement from my super fund showing annual defined income adequate for your application?

    • finder Customer Care
      LouFebruary 14, 2017Staff

      Hi GB,

      Thanks for your question.

      Coles accepts credit card applicants who are retired or are receiving pensions, but subject to eligibility criteria.

      For retired applicants, this will depend on your level of income. If you’re a self-funded retiree with a superannuation income, you’ll need to provide a recent superannuation statement. If you have a term deposit, you’ll need to provide your term deposit statement. If you have an investment property, you can submit the 3 most recent rental income statements.

      For pensioners, it depends on your source of your pension. If it’s from Centrelink, you’ll need to provide a pension statement. If it’s from the Department of Veteran Affairs, you’ll need to provide statements from there.

      You may also check this page to compare other lenders who consider retired or pensioner borrowers.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
