      Hi Robert,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      I’m afraid that Harmoney does not accept applicants who are Centrelink recipients. Nonetheless, if you wish to check which ones that do accept, please refer to this page. You can directly contact a lender featured on that page to discuss your eligibility or options.

      Cheers,
