      Hi Maria,

      Just to clarify, you’ve come through to, not ME Bank. However, you are able to repay your personal loan to save on interest and you won’t be penalised. You can contact ME Bank directly to organise your early repayment.

      Hope this helps,

      Hi John,

      Thanks for your question.

      Credit defaults are listed on your file for a five-year period and then they are removed from the credit reporting agency, so you can expect it to be removed soon. Your credit file will be checked as part of the application and you need good credit in order to be approved. It would be best to confirm your eligibility with ME Bank before you apply.

      Hi Deb,

      Thanks for your question.

      Generally your primary source of income needs to come from an employer and your Centrelink benefits are considered as supplementary income. It’s advisable for you to speak to ME Bank directly first to discuss your options and eligibility.

      We also have an article on pensioner loans that may be of interest to you.

    I am looking to take my wife to the USA as a surprise 50th birthday present, but only work casually. I can provide my last 3 payslips but is there any other requirements, e.g., length of employment that is required (obviously a clear credit history is a must). I naturally need the loan in my name only otherwise the surprise will be ruined. Please let me know about length of employment and me being casual, would that effect anything. I’m looking at approx $10-15k

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for your question.

      To be eligible you’ll need to have been in casual employment for more than 6 months. ME Bank will also look at your previous employment and see whether you were employed in an different industry beforehand.

      Please note that the success of your application can not be guaranteed.

      All the best,

      Hi Shirley,
      Thank you for your reply. I understand that I have to be in casual employment for 6 months, however my scenario may be slightly different. I have worked FULL time in the hospitality industry for 4 years before going to casual basis at the same hotel for a further 2 years where I still work. At the same time I have just started work (August) at the local hospital therefore have 2 casual positions. Will the fact that I have been employed as a casual for at least 2 years be of benefit to me if the loan application was to be assessed, or would they purely look at my current employment?

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for your question.

      This is a very specific question and so I think it might be best that you get in touch with ME Bank to discuss your eligibility.

      We don’t have access to information regarding their lending criteria, and so they will be able to give you a more informed answer.

      All the best,

    what would my income need to be for a loan of $5000 over a 3-5year loan term?

      Shirley | July 25, 2014

      Hi Jessie,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately this is very hard to say because the amount of money you can borrow depends on your income and other financial commitments.

      Please speak to the customer service team at ME Bank, without making any formal applications, for an indication.
