    Hi there,
    I am having some serious trouble getting a credit card or personal loan because although my current role has given me what they call a ‘permanent roster (fulltime hours)’, I am still considered a casual employee and have only been with them three months. Otherwise I have two other casual jobs that I supplement my income with, but this seems to make no difference. I need money for a bond for a rental, please help!

      Hi Andrea, thanks for your comment.

      Have you tried applying for a credit card/ personal loan already?

      The application requirements for credit cards and personal loans don’t specify between being a casual employee or full time employee. Rather the application requirements are based on income, expenses and existing debts.

      Hope this helps.

    I am currently on a subclass 820 visa (temporary partner visa until Permanent Residence is approved). I am starting a new job that includes car allowance but finding it difficult to find a bank that will give me a car loan due to my visa not having an end date (the reason for this is that it is valid until my permanent residency is approved, which can take around 2 years). Would this bank or any other that you know of give me a loan on this visa. I am employed full-time and have been for the past 6 years so my credit history and salary isn’t an issue.

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your question.

      I can’t find any information as to the required number of months you have been a casual employee before you can apply for BankSA Personal Loans. But you need to be over the age of 18 and a permanent Australian resident to apply for a loan with the same lender.

      You may also check this page to compare other loan options for casual employees.

      Hi Maree,

      Thanks for your question.

      BankSA accepts all Centrelink payments as a form of income, for the purpose of loan application, except Newstart.
