    Hi,

    I am a 457 4-year working visa holder. Just wondering if I’ll be allowed to apply for this kind of loan for my wife’s education expenses.
    Thank you

      Hi Ken and Christine,

      If you have proof of your income (you mentioned you regularly transfer the money into your Australian account) then you should be able to apply. You still receive a regular income so if you have documents to show this St.George can make an assessment based off this. The minimum criteria for this loan is that you’re over the age of 18 and a permanent resident and have the ability to repay the loan.

      If you have concerns regarding your eligibility it would be best to contact St.George directly.

      I hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

      Hi Elizabeth, what I am asking is if I am allowed to pay off the loan within a short period of time. Most loans have a minimum repayment period of 1 year. What happens if I pay off the loan in 3 months? Will there be any penalty?

      Hi Amber,

      Apologies I misread your question.

      As this is a line of credit loan there is no repayment term, but there is also no early repayment penalty with this loan and no early exit fee so you can pay off the entire balance whenever you like and not be charged any penalty.

      Hope this clarified things,

      Elizabeth

    Is the Get Set Loan a secured or unsecured loan?

    • Staff
      ElizabethMay 6, 2016Staff

      Hi Patricia,

      The St.George Get Set Loan is an unsecured line of credit loan. You’ll be offered a credit limit and you can draw up to and including that limit.

      Hope this helps,

      Elizabeth

    With a get set line of credit loan what is the amount that would need to be paid off each month for a loan of 35,000 for example.
    Can you re-use the amount you pay off if you want and is there any penalties for paying the amount of at any time as there is no expiry date?

    I am considering switching my loans to one bank.

    Thanks

    Deborah

      Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for your question.

      You need to pay off $50 or 1.25% of the outstanding balance plus the monthly interest charge (13.75%) and administration fee($9), whichever is higher. Whatever repayments you make on the loan become available to you again in the form of credit. You need to make monthly repayments on the loan but you are correct, there is no expiry date on the loan term and the credit limit will be ongoing as long as you keep making the monthly repayments.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
