      Hi Rebecca,

      Thanks for leaving a question on Finder.

      You can check our list of Centrelink loans. This page provides a list of lenders that will consider a loan for people on parenting payments.

      Please click the name of the lender to be redirected to our review page and learn more about the lender’s loan offer, rates, and requirements as well as the pros and cons of using their loan service. When you are ready, you may then click on the “Go to site” button and you will be redirected to the lender’s website where you can proceed with the application or get in touch with their representatives for further inquiries you may have.

      Finding out about alternative loans while unemployed is also useful. These includes the No Interest Loans scheme (NILs) and the StepUP Program to help give eligible borrowers access to affordable finance.

      Before applying, please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you. You can also contact the provider if you have specific questions.

      Cheers,
      Joel

      Hi Lauren,

      Thanks for your comment.

      As you are on a disability pension, credit options may be limited. We’ve curated a guide that outlines some pensioner loans, but not all, of the options available to you.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Matt
