    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Most lenders require at least two identification records. If you can only present a driver’s license, you may want to directly get in touch with the lender you are interested in and enquire if you can provide any substitute form of identification.

    Cheers,
    Anndy

      Hi Brittany,

      You can be considered for a loan as long as you show you have the capacity to repay, for instance, if you receive Centrelink benefits as income you may still be considered. You can submit your application on the Wallet Wizard site.

      Hi Laureen,

      Thanks for your question.

      In the above page, there are several lenders that accept loan applications from borrowers who are receiving Centrelink Payments. Among them are:

      ClearCash

      Good to Go Loans

      Rapid Finance

      Cash Stop

      Approval is handled on a case to case basis and other eligibility criteria apply.

      You will also have a good chance of approval if you keep your credit score high.

      Anndy
