Factors to consider about the MyState Unsecured Personal Loan

The amount for which you are approved depends on MyState’s evaluation of your personal finances. If approved, you will be charged an application fee, as well as a monthly fee for managing the loan.

The maximum loan period is 7 year(s) (10 year(s) for the secured personal loan option). You can also make additional repayments or even settle the whole loan amount early without penalty. Additional repayments can be accessed through a redraw facility for a fee of $30 per redraw.  Loan insurance is available to cover repayments in the event of accident or injury.

Features of the MyState Unsecured Personal Loan

Here are some of the features you can expect with this unsecured personal loan:

  • Easy application. You can apply for this loan online, upload documents and bank statements directly to your application and save an incomplete application form to be submitted later.
  • Financial assessment. Loan approval depends on MyState’s assessment of your bank statements, assets and liabilities.
  • No security. This is an unsecured loan, which means that you won’t be required to use your valuable assets to guarantee the loan amount.
  • Flexibility. This loan can be used for any purpose.
  • Loan terms. You can repay this loan over one to seven years.
  • Loan amount. This loan is available from $3,000 up to a maximum of $50,000.
  • Redraw facility. This facility is available for a minimum of $500 per redraw. A fee of $30 is charged for every redraw.
  • Fees. An establishment fee of $200 applies for setting up the loan. Following this, a monthly fee of $10 is charged.
  • Repayment options. You can make repayments on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. If you choose to make weekly or fortnightly repayments, the total must be equal to at least the required minimum monthly amount.

How to apply for the MyState Unsecured Personal Loan

Applications can be submitted online, by telephone or by appointment at a local MyState branch. Keep in mind you need to meet the following criteria to apply:

  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.
  • You must have been employed full-time or part-time for the last three months (or one year if you work casually).
  • You must not have any defaults or bankruptcies in your credit history.

You will also be asked to submit information about your finances, including:

  • Two of your most recent payslips. If you are self-employed, you’ll have to include a copy of your two latest tax returns, including profit and loss statements for the past two financial years and your most recent tax assessment.
  • A list of assets such as vehicles, savings, property and art.
  • A list of liabilities including credit cards, existing loans and outstanding debts.
  • Identification including a passport, ID card or Medicare card.

While the application process is simple and no security is required, this loan still represents a binding financial commitment. MyState won’t approve a loan that you can’t afford, so before applying, explore alternatives to see if you can find terms and rates better suited to your circumstances.
