      Hi Warren,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Based on the general eligibility criteria and requirements for an Australian Military Bank credit card, you should be currently employed or receiving a regular income. I’d suggest that you contact the Australian Military Bank directly to confirm if you can apply even though you are receiving the age pension and disability payments.

      Meantime, if you’d like to check other banks that accept pensioner applicants, please read the criteria and general information from our page that list credit cards for retired and pensioner applications. You may select the name of the bank so you will find the credit cards they offer.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      May
