    I am a now United Nations disability Pensioner I was injured on duty in the Netherlands my pensions go into a Netherlands Bank account and then to Australia, we have been doing this since 2008, Can I apply for a loan still. We are Australian Citizens born here and worked all our lives here except for 6 Years In Holland. That is why the pension goes into our Account there.

      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,

    Hi, what is the minimum pay off period of this loan? For the sake of argument, may I pay off $5000 within 3 months?

      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,

    Is the Get Set Loan a secured or unsecured loan?

      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,

    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.

      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.
