    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

      Hi Negusco,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      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,

      Unfortunately these loans are only for current Australian residents. You may need to find a lender in Tanzania to expand your business.

      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

      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
