    Hi, I would like to find out if it is possible with my low credit score to apply for a loan to consolidate some of my debt. I want to pay off my credit card and get a personal loan.

    I need to find finance options for gender reassignment Surgery in Australia. I’m expecting it to cost up front 20,000 although 3/4 should be eligible for a refund. I’m on a disability pension, but desperately need this surgery to complete my journey.

      Hello Alice,

      Thank you for sending your inquiry over. :)

      We understand that this is a very important step for you. Most lenders of our medical loans would require employment which currently doesn’t match your form of income.

      You may consider this page for list of lenders which may qualify you for a loan. We have listed lenders ranging from banks, government and community financial assistance. You may use the calculator on that page to know how much you can borrow.

      Kindly review the eligibility requirements of each lender. You may click “Go to Site” green button of your chosen lender to proceed with your application.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Unfortunately, this loan is only available to Australian permanent residents or citizen. This is same is true for all other lenders listed on our pages. You might want to contact a bank or a lender in Canada instead.

      I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    My husbands application has been with your verification team for over a week now. We have asked for a call back from them 3 times with no response. Is this normal. I am very frustrated at the lack of communication.

      Hi Akile,

    Hi I was just wondering if you earn under 15000 are you still eligible to get a loan for 8000!?

      ElizabethOctober 20, 2016Staff

      Hi Chanel,

      CUA will only approve you for a loan amount you can afford. To determine this it takes into account your employment, your income, your assets, debts and liabilities. You might find this borrowing power calculator useful, it gives you an estimate of how much you can borrow.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    Hi,
    I am wanting to get a loan but have just started working. How long do I have to have a regular income for before I can apply for a loan?
    Thanks

      ElizabethAugust 29, 2016Staff

      Hi Karen,

      Most lenders require at least three months of bank statements to show a stable working history, they may also require that you have been working for a certain amount of time (usually three months but can be as high as six or 12 months for casual/part-time employees) to show that you’re out of your probation period.

      If you have questions regarding your eligibility you may want to contact CUA directly.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    Hi,
    My wife and I are separating and she is needing to consolidate some c/cards & a personal loan together to help manage cash flow. Due to things getting a little tight for her financially of late, she’s been late a couple of times for her repayments on her c/card, but this won’t happen once bought together on one loan. Do you ask for copies of c/card & loan statements as part of the assessment criteria, or is it strictly as per your list: Pers. Info, Income, ID, Liabilities, Assets? Thank you.
    Gordon.

      Hi Gordon,

      Thank you for your inquiry and I’m sorry to hear about you and your wife’s current situation.

      Just to confirm though that you’ve come through to finder.com.au we are an Australian financial comparison website and general information service and we do not represent or an affiliate of any lender or credit card company we feature on our site.

      You may like to check this page where you might be able to find our guide and compare your credit card and personal loan consolidation options (for your wife). Generally, for credit cards, Citibank and Virgin Money are credit card issuers that accept a balance transfer from both credit card and personal loans.

      Please make sure to review the criteria as the requirements will vary from lender to lender. You’d be best to contact the lender/credit card issuer before you submit any application so you can discuss your options and situation.

      I hope this is helpful.

      Cheers,
      May
