      Hi Michael,

      You have to supply the documents as listed on the page above and documents to show your residency details (i.e. how long you have left on your visa). You’ll need documents to prove you:
      Have confirmed employment in Australia
      Hold a salary credited Commonwealth Bank transaction account with a reasonable balance
      Hold a 457 visa
      The approval and funding process differs but you should be able to get a response soon after your you apply in Netbank. As you’re a current customer (you’ll need to be to apply) you can get funded on the same or next business day.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Del,

      The minimum eligibility criteria is that you have a source of regular income, have an Australian residential address and are over 18 years of age. If you have the means to repay the loan you’re applying for you can submit your application on CommBank’s website.

      I hope this helps,

      Hi Jean,

      Commbank considers people receiving the pension for personal loans, but you need to be receiving $14,000 p.a. t0 be eligible and show that you will be able to repay the loan you’re applying for.

      I hope this helps,

      I been look for help abt apply online and I’m on pension and they not show up abt pension just say unemployment or employment need advice please

    • Staff
      ElizabethOctober 17, 2016Staff

      Hi Chrissie,

      When you apply you can list your current income from benefits (the pension) and your income from employment. Here, you would list your pension income and $0 from other income (if that is accurate). You will then list unemployed unless you hold some form of employment.

      You also have the option of applying in-branch if you’re having trouble with the online application.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth
