The personal loans from NAB can be used for a variety of purposes. Below are some of the main types of personal loans that you can take advantage of from NAB:

  • Unsecured Personal Loan (Fixed). The unsecured loan can help you pay for home renovations, travel or even debt consolidation. NAB personal loans allow you to borrow between $5,000 and $55,000 depending on your needs and capacity to pay. As the loan is fixed, your repayments won't fluctuate during the loan term.
  • Car Loans. If you’re looking for financing options for a car, you might want to consider a NAB Car Loan. The loan term is from 1 to 7 years and you can finance a new car or used car.
  • Unsecured Personal Loan (Variable). The unsecured variable rate options gives you increased repayment flexibility with your loan. You still won't be able to attach security but you will be able to make additional repayments and redraw them when you need to. Loan terms between 1 and 7 years are available.

      Hi Shireen,

      You’ll need to open a transaction account with NAB if you want an overdraft, but you can apply for a NAB credit card without holding any other product.

      NAB can get a new credit card to you in 5-7 days after you’ve been approved.

      Hi RL,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Please note that is a financial comparison and information service. We do not represent NAB.

      After you submitted a personal loan application with NAB, you should be able to receive an email or a secure message through internet banking straight away to confirm that they have received your application. Within 1-2 business days, they will send an email informing you of the status of your application.

      If you have not received any email from NAB to confirm the status of your application, I suggest that you directly get in touch with them to inquire.

      Hi RR,

      NAB considers temporary residents for certain loans but you need to be holding a 457 Visa or be a New Zealand citizen. You can find out more of your loan options on this page.

      Hope this has helped,

      Some Centrelink income is considered by NAB as a regular income, the main thing is that you are able to demonstrate that you are able to afford the loan repayments. You can find out more information on this page.

    I am on a ds pension and have a part time job. I am a single mother. I would like to get a home loan. Is there a bank out there who will lend me the money and how much do I need as a deposit pls?

    • Staff
      Belinda | March 15, 2016

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      We have a page about home loans for Centrelink recipients where you can enquire with a mortgage broker that can help review your financial position and find a suitable product for you. As you’ll see in the table, the disability pension is accepted by most lenders as a form of income given that you have a secondary income source (which it appears that you do through part-time employment).

      Keep in mind that it can be difficult to qualify for a loan if you’re on the pension as the lender views you as a high-risk borrower. However, if you can demonstrate to the lender that you have a good credit history, sufficient savings and enough income/benefit to service the loan then you may be able to qualify.

      Typically you should try to come up with at least a 20% deposit to avoid paying lender’s mortgage insurance (LMI) for a full documentation loan.

      Please get in touch with NAB directly regarding this enquiry. You’ll be able to discuss how much you receive, how often and if you have a primary source of income.

      They’ll be able to explain what options are available to you and discuss your eligibility.
